I think I might be finally catching up with my blogging. Whew. It’s been a busy wedding season around here. I’m always so thankful for each couple that comes my way. I truly think that we are put together for a reason. My job isn’t just my job; it’s my heart on the outside of my body. Jessica certainly understood that. She is such a tender sweetheart. Every encounter I had with her throughout the wedding planning process, the engagement session, and of course her wedding was one of joy. She pushed me, twice. The first time, requesting that her engagement session take place in a boat, on open water, with my equipment…..yikes. We made it happen. The second, portraits in full sun. We rocked it. I ain’t skeeered. 🙂 Bring on the sun.

These two melted my heart. As Jessica walked down the aisle, she looked at her Joe and mouthed the words “I love you.” My legs melted out from under me. I am a hopeless romantic. Absolutely hopeless.

I have much respect for Joe. I looked at him, in uniform, throughout the day, knowing that he had seen things that I would never have to. He serves us all; protecting us from unlovely things. Even as I sit here, I am shaking my head, agreeing with my own self, that Joe and Jessica are the perfect match.

Congratulations to you both. You have a piece of my heart.

She sent Joe one last text before she slipped into her dress. I know what it said, but I’m not tellin. Hehe. You can tell from that huge smile that it was completely perfect for the moment.

I always love shooting seniors. They are on the cusp of adulthood, and are wide-eyed with anticipation for all that awaits them. It becomes all the more special when it’s someone I have known, and watched grow up. Lindsay is one of those people. I have watched her bloom and blossom into a beautiful young woman over the last 4 years. I have shared a few laughs with her and a little sadness; but what binds her to my heart is that we share a passion: our pictures. Lindsay is quiet, but what she says speaks to her depth and wisdom.

She has noooooooooo idea how beautiful she is. Look at those eyes. Gorge.

 

These two were all cuddles and smiles during their early morning engagement session. Peter’s whit and Erin’s infectious giggle kept me in stitches. By the time we were done, my “smiler” was sore.  I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday morning sunrise than with these two. The only thing missing was a vinti salted caramel mocha from Starbucks. 🙂 I’m looking forward to their March 2012 wedding.
