This is the greatest ‘how did you meet’ story ever!
Every time we ask couples, “how did you guys meet?” we often get the same kind of reaction. They both look at each other, smile like it was only yesterday and tell us how they met. Sometimes it’s online, other times its at work or through an introduction from friends…but this time Pegah and Shayan looked at each other and just started laughing to kill themselves.
A while back, Baton Rouge was opening in downtown Halifax and while I don’t know the details of the transaction, I do know that Shayan Safaei, from Toronto, was involved. The Chronicle Herald had written a story about the eventual opening and the who’s and what’s of the deal. Pegah, a real estate agent, read this story and noticed Shayan’s name. That’s all it was, a name, but it intrigued Pegah so…she took it upon herself to ‘creep’ him on Facebook. Shayan, being the handsome man that he is, was going to be at Baton Rouge for what I believe was the grand opening on one particular night and this date was also mentioned in the paper.
You know what’s coming next right?
Pegah called her friend and told her to get ready because they were going out on the town (Baton Rouge)…and the rest is history.
Are you kidding me? How awesome is this girl!? She sees a name in a paper, walks into a restaurant, introduces herself and BOOM. Engagement, wedding and some kind of cosmic chemistry like I’ve never seen between two kids. I mean I had to play chaperone half of the night…they were like two teeny boppers at a roller rink. I’m grinning like an idiot even as I write this thinking about how completely in love these two are.
Steph and I had some plans for this shoot but we just bailed on it all, pointed the camera in whatever direction they were standing and they did the rest.
