June + Garrick's Engagement Session | Patterson Park | Baltimore, MD
June and Garrick are just oh-so-in-love
June: It was the evening of my 30th Birthday. I had just had THE BEST night EVER; having thrown myself a party at Max’s on Broadway. I had several friends from out of town visiting (I was living in Jacksonville, FL at the time). My friends were dying for Stuggy’s, so as they waited in line for their “gourmet” late-night hot dogs, I waited patiently with the remainder of our crew. I'll let Garrick take it from here...
Garrick: It was 2:15am, my friends figured they’d take a stab at convincing a bouncer to let them into a just-closed bar for an ‘after hours’ drink. I was watching their predictable failure, when this cute chick in a flowery dress caught my eye. She was smiling graciously and patiently, at a guy twice her age who’d crawled out of a whiskey bottle to give her his best chat while decked out in Targets Summer of 2013 denim collection and squeaky white dad-from-the-90’s style sneakers.
Meanwhile, this diminutive beta of a guy, who was clearly part of this girls ‘crew’, was doing nothing to help her. Luckily, I had some liquid courage on board, and felt valiant. Apparently my approach conveyed some right, because the guy broke off his slurred monologue and backed away from her slowly.
Her name was June, and for my services I felt her digits were adequate compensation. We started a dialogue. I’m certain my game was golden, but from the next morning, to this day, the specifics remain hazy. I learned she lived in Florida, and rightly felt my efforts rather wasted, but she convinced me to keep her number with the use of logical and reasoned argument with her, and I quote “amazing ass”, at its center.
My buddy managed to capture a picture of the exchange; he shot from the hip so it’s a little catawampus, and it’s not flattering, but it’s all smiles, and it’s a snapshot of the beginning of something wonderful.
