Aleysha is a barista at my local coffee shop, and yes that is where we met. I got to photograph Aleysha + Josh out in the gorge next to the Columbia River last month. We hiked through wildflowers and dodged sheets of rain as we got to know each other.
I cherish moments like this because if it wasn’t for Aleysha’s boldness of always engaging in conversation with me we would still just be strangers. So next time go out of your comfort zone and talk with someone, meet someone new <3
