Portrait Session Turned Tuesday Trivia Tradition
A little while after we first met, Emily was going through some tough life transitions and I offered her a portrait shoot. A few months later, we picked a random Tuesday in July to meet up and shoot. Everything about that Tuesday was random and spur-of-the-moment! Typical of Ohio summers, it rained practically the whole day. I asked her if she wanted to reschedule and when she told me about getting her hair done, I told her we’d shoot rain or shine!
We met up at Goodale and made our way into the Short North. After we walked around a bit, Emily asked if we could find a bar and grab a drink. For photo purposes, of course 😉 I pulled up Google Maps and found a random bar. I’d never heard of it and thought it sounded like a cool, off-the-beaten-path kind of place, so off we went. We walked in, were greeted by one of the coolest bartenders I’ve ever met and I took a few photos before we just sat down and talked. A while later, some people walked in and turns out – they knew Emily! Small world, right? Well, it turns out that we stumbled into their weekly trivia spot. After some persuasion, we joined them for trivia and oddly enough, we’ve been going almost every week since!
It’s crazy to think that I’ve only known Emily for a year. She and I are so similar, especially in some of our life experiences, that our friendship came about pretty easily. To say that I’m grateful for her friendship is a serious understatement.
