Lani + Ricky
Meet Lani and Ricky. Two of the funniest people I have ever met. Lani will break it down for you on the dance floor and ask no questions. Ricky could probably school LeBron on the court…too far? Maybe just a little. But I can promise you one thing, the second you meet these two, you will know they were meant to be together.
2013 hasn’t been the easiest year for many. Many of us have had to endure the loss of loved ones, financial struggles and everything else that life can sometimes throw our way. Lani, a first grade teacher in Coconut Grove, was no exception to this. In the beginning of this year she was diagnosed with myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle. Her diagnosis was no simple doctor visit though, Lani remained in the ICU for days fighting for her life. She fought through it with the help of Ricky, her family, friends, and even Mr. Worldwide himself…Pitbull. Anyone who knows Lani knows she is a die hard Pitbull fan…her friends and family even created the #PitbullForLani campaign to lift her spirits! And that he did, soon after the campaign went viral she received a tweet from him with a special video message just for her (no wonder she loves him so much!). Lani is doing much better now, she’s a tough cookie! In a few months Ricky and Lani will be and tying the knot surely to be followed by some gettin’ dooooooown on the dance floor.
These two could not possibly be any more perfect for each other. They met at St Timothy and both went on to become teachers. They are two of the biggest goofballs I have ever met! Seriously, I don’t think I have ever laughed so much during an engagement session..ever. I am so happy to have met such a wonderful couple and am extremely excited to photograph their wedding in March 2014!
Thank you to Yani and Zack for assisting me with throwing leaves at the beautiful couple and blocking the crowd of comic con geeks at UM 😉
