The Perfect Prom – Happily Ever After Coronavirus

Once upon a time, in the beginning of Utah’s March 2020 exposure to Coronavirus when everything was cancelled and people were sent home from work and school, a cute couple went to Junior Prom. Yes, Prom was officially cancelled, but they still dressed up, took photos, ate a nice dinner, and enjoyed their time together. 

This is my sister’s son, Michael, and his awesome friend, Luella. They made some fun memories, and for one awesome evening, lived Happily Ever After in spite of all of the pending panic and doom and gloom.

Lorin came along with me and took photos with his new Fuji camera – whose maiden voyage was earlier in the day while filming some music videos for a friend! I always love shooting with Mattie, but tonight it was fun to shoot with Lorin! It was kind of a date for us, really, and reminded me of my own Junior Prom (that Lorin took me to!) Our marriage has been a great adventure and to think it all started with a Prom!!

Ky & Hannah, our son and daughter-in-law. I remember when they were first dating, they jokingly said their “couple name” was Kyannah. Would they, will they, name a little girl this name? I guess we won’t know for awhile, since they are having a boy, and his name is … Ryker.
