They are the kind of couple you just want to be friends with. You're sure to meet the most interesting people from all around the world at their parties, you'll definitely taste something you've never had before, and you'll get to be entertained by hilarious stories that you'd think come straight out of the Life of Pi... but are actually all true.
I met Ricardo a few years ago.
He had decided to come to Montréal for the summer, where he didn't really know anyone. A mutual friend from out of town introduced us via Facebook and something like twenty minutes before we actually met up in person at Jean-Talon market, he had made about 40 close friends.
Not much later, he introduced us to the charming Yamie. If you've known this girl for twenty years or for ten minutes, she instantly makes you feel appreciated and engages in a genuinely interested (and interesting!) conversation.
They are people that care. They care about their friends and family, they care about people they haven't met yet, they care about making the world a better place, and they definitely care about each other. Ricardo has devised the ability to simultaneously pursue a meaningful conversation with friends around a few beers on his deck while actually deeply and passionately admiring Yamie dancing in the kitchen to music she's brought back from any one of her travels.
It was an absolute pleasure to shoot this session with these two at UQAM's Coeur des sciences campus! Beaucoup de bonheur à vous deux xox
