It has been one year since this incredible weekend in Singapore. Ellie and I have been sister-friends since we met at a pub crawl back in 2010. When she moved back to Singapore after university I wasn’t sure how our relationship was going to change, but a decade later we are closer than ever. Our nights of staying out late, getting pancakes at 2 in the morning, and eating Cheetos until we felt sick have turned into video chats with countless filters that go on for hours, even with our 12 hour time difference.
I was on a weekend trip in New York, when Ellie called me with the news that she was engaged. I didn’t tell her because I didn’t want to sound too sappy, but I cried when we hung up. David is such a fun, caring man and I knew that he could handle my spicy spicy friend. I was so excited and felt so blessed and grateful that we stayed so close despite our distance. Growing older your friends and seeing them experience milestones in life is such a gift and we should never take it for granted.
Photographing their Korean Pyebaek ceremony is a highlight in my life and will be a day I never forget.
