Most of the people that I met in Rexburg, I met through soccer; Oscar Infante was not the exception.

One day during the Winter semester, one Peruvian friend invited me to play indoor soccer and before the game, I got the chance to meet Oscar. He’s also from Peru but has been in the States for over 10 years. He currently works for Volkswagen as a mechanic.

By that time, I had a little issue with my car. Long story short, I had a bad diagnostic on my car and Oscar helped me to fix the problem. We worked on my car for no more than 10 minutes, as I said, it was a bad diagnostic. We decided to get something to eat and our friendship launched from there.

After a couple of weeks, I met his wife, Emily, and she told me about their wedding and that she didn’t like the photos they had as a couple so she asked me if I could help her by taking new photos.

Yet again, I was facing a photo shoot situation I have never delt with before. I didn’t know what to expect or what to offer. Luckily, Emily knew exactly what she wanted. She gathered some ideas from Pinterest and pitched them to me.

They took me to some of their favorite places around Rexburg and this was the result:

After a couple of months, they gave me a surprise when they told me they were waiting for their first born. I got even more excited when they asked me to photograph their announcement.

I was really glad to know they were happy with their photos. It was an awesome experience to shoot photos of my friends and capture those moments with them.

Thanks, Emily and Oscar for letting me part of those memories and cheers for your pregnancy.  Cheers to you both!
