Okay. This might be one of my favorite sessions that I have done. Just because it was taken in a place I never thought I would do a couple's photoshoot: A High School.
Andres and Val went to Bakersfield High School together. They developed feelings for each other and here we are about 5ish years later. The craziest part of this couple's story is that they later discovered that they have met before! In MIDDLE SCHOOL!!!!!
Val was a sharing a time where she was walking down the halls of Walter Stern Middle School. She dropped all of her belongings on the floor and almost fell. Andres saw her struggling and ran to help her! Cliche? Ooohhh yeah. Adorable? Absolutely. Since then, Andres and Val always waved at each other in the hall but that's about it. Never knew each others' names and never expected to see each other again.
Fast forward to High School, and they start talking (they had forgot about each other and they have changed because puberty.) Andres was in the Bakersfield High School Marching Band - drumline and Val joined the colorguard. They began hanging out and got comfortable with each other. One evening at a Marching Band Competition, Andres asked Val to be his girlfriend! At some point they realized that they had cross paths before their time in high school!!!! How crazy!
This year, they will be celebrating 5 years together! Here are my favorite pictures from our photoshoot of these High School Sweethearts at Bakersfield High School! It was so dang hard to narrow down my favorites!!!
