F just pulled off the ultimate swoon-worthy move! Picture this: F and V, after getting their pups out of the truck, stroll into the nature trail with their adorable new fur ball (who V had gone to pick up that week in New York), all excited for their photoshoot to showcase the newest addition to their family. Little did V know, F had a sneaky plan up his sleeve. As they stood back to back with the pups, Forest dropped down on one knee and popped the big question! Cue the happy tears and the “OMG, is this for real?!” expressions. After the “yes” and a gazillion happy hugs and kisses, we headed to the beach just as the sky was turning that magical shades of blues, pinks and oranges. Running around hand in hand, we celebrated against the backdrop of the ocean and the sky before they headed off to dinner with friends that were awaiting to congratulate them!

When K reached out to me about getting photos done before S deployed I knew it was important to get them in. As a military partner myself, I knew just how important having these photos were for K. They are something to hold on to in the months that he is gone.

With couples being forced to do their weddings and honeymoons differently due to COIVD, new ways of celebrating came about. One of my favorites is exactly what J + E did, a one year anniversary session! They shared a corona during their session and it was fitting since it’s their favorite beer and they got married mid pandemic. Popping a bottle of bubbly celebrated their one year of marriage. J + E kept each other laughing the entire time and it was such a sweet evening celebrating their one year!

Some of the couples that I work with have the most outgoing personalities once you they get comfortable with me and we laugh the entire second half of the session 🤩 I met B + J while photographing J’s sisters wedding in 2020 so when I was asked to do another sisters wedding I couldn’t say no! J is one of 4 girls and so am I so it made it even more special to now be asked to do 2/4 girls weddings.

They both have a sweet tooth, which I mean who doesn’t sometimes, so we bonded over our love of sweet treats! I am so incredibly excited to celebrate them with their family in friends this coming November!
