Seattle Engagment Session : Muyiwa+Kristin

Kristen would never look for attention, she left that to a little sister {me}. She’s much more likely to be found in quiet observation before she was ever caught in the middle of the crowd. Muyiwa on the other hand is boisterous and bold, his laughter and charisma take over the room as soon as he begins sharing his stories. While she plans and confirms, he’s jumping in and laughing the whole way down. They are Ying and Yang. But as Paula Abdul wisely shared while strutting spandex all those years ago — ‘opposites attract’. And I couldn’t be happier about it!

We decided to do their engagement session at The University of Washington. The campus holds a lot of  memories for them! It’s where Kristen studied both undergrad and med school and where she met Mu. I remember the first time we (the sisters) met him. He was studying in a little coffee house and we were heading out for a sister’s night dinner and decided to stop by to size him up… Uhhh – I mean say hello. Little did we know just how special Mu would become to our big sister. He is the one that our Kristin fell in love with, the one she’s choosing to complete her life with. Speaking of completing life… Have I mentioned that THREE of my sisters are engaged at this very moment?

But today the spotlight falls on Kristin. Mu & Kristin will be saying ‘I do’ in June! Mu – I just have to tell you how lucky you are! My sister is one of the most amazing people I know and definitely the smartest! I’m so happy for you two!

Kristin … You are positively beautiful!

When not doing “doctor” stuff I think that these two strut around in their model alter ego’s. How cool that their mail is going to come to ‘Dr. & Dr.’ Yes. I’ve put a little more thought into that then I’d like to admit! If I were them, I’d go to a ball just so I could be announced Dr. & Dr.! You know it sounds awesome!
