Lucy + Thomas | Venice, CA Engagement Session
We told people we met at a frat party at UCLA. It was “our story” for a long time. Those who knew the real story know, I was the biggest nerd during my days at USC and the closest I ever got to a fraternity party was watching one on TV. Plus, what the heck would a Trojan ever be doing on the UCLA campus? HAHA 😉 Sorry, I couldn’t help it.
In truth, Tommy and I actually met in an AOL Chatroom. Yep, believe that. In a world of a million usernames and racy, sexy profile pictures. WuJuniorX caught Msam007562’s eye, and vice versa. Oh and trust me, there were no racy photos to gawk at — his photos were of himself in Bruin attire. Mine were of me and my 4-year-old baby girl. Today we tell our story freely and with laughter, but completely without shame and knowing in the vast and crazy internet world, we found each other because it was meant to be.
When we had our first Skype chat with Lucy + Thomas, I saw a similar laughter and twinkle in their eyes when we asked them how they met. For these two beautiful people, their bridge to each other was on Craigslist. Thomas posted a rare poem by Saul Williams titled “This Type of Love” on a personal ad and she happened to click on it and read it. Ironically, Lucy had heard the poem before even though this poet’s work wasn’t widely known and because of this, it drew her in like poetry in motion. So she sent him a message and the minute she clicked send, so began their love story …
