Well folks, we found out that there are multiple Panama Cities, and that apparently one is in Florida. No offense Floridians, but that’s hard pass when places like Casco Viejo in the ORIGINAL Panama City are up for grabs.
Katy and Eric told us they wanted to meet us somewhere in the world this year for their engagement photos. We gave them our schedule and they were like “no thanks on a winter Chicago shoot, no thanks again on trying to freeze in the Washington coastal rain, meh on Texas since we’re already there so much, ummm…” and we were like “okay buy tickets to Panama and meet us there” and they said “okay” and we said “great” and that my friends is how we found ourselves in the historic (though reviving!) part of the city known as Casco Viejo, where we drank rum to calm their nerves, tried not to sweat through our clothes, and tiptoed into abandoned buildings and strange docks and the best little secret spaces we could have ever dreamed, ever.
Our dream couples have the spirit of adventure that these two do: down for whatever a new street will bring them, not interested in proving anything to anyone, just wanting to love on each other and experience the world together. That’s kind of all we want to do too, and having adventures in far-flung locales with people like Eric and Katy make us feel like we just hit the dang jackpot.
