Josh & Michelle are some of the raddest people I've photographed. These two are the original hipsters - the real deal. Josh is a chaplain at Hope Mission, where he ministers to Edmonton's inner city and is a prayer warrior. And he does this while growing out the most glorious beard and man-bun with a good cup of joe in his hand. And Michelle is an artist - free spirited, with funky leggings and bold patterns. She's a DIY queen with just a hint of blue and crazy rad in her curly hair :) And to top if off, her gorgeous engagement ring is a RAW diamond - ethically sourced, conflict free, completely unique and original, and absolutely beautiful. How amazing is that?!
These two bravely woke up at 7am on a Saturday morning to hit up my favourite yeg cafe - Little Brick - where we warmed up to cups of glorious coffee, some homemade vanilla-bean marshmallows, and a whole lot of silliness between these two friends-turned-lovers. And like I promised them several times, "there's no awkward here, only adorable."
But really, a little bit of awkward is totally adorable. Amiright?! ;)
