Sometimes, you get lucky.
Almost two years ago Laura contacted me about her wedding. Through her writing I could tell that she was an absolutely bubbly and kindhearted person, and that she wanted us – not just anyone – as her wedding photographers. We met, hit it off big time, and a year later we were shooting their wedding.
From that very first email to the first meeting and so on, we have felt like the luckiest photographers in the world.
Laura and Joe, you two are ridiculously good together. I know your wedding was a while ago, but I’ve just been sitting on these pictures and never found the right words to go with them. When someone strikes a chord with me I could go on for days, but I think I can sum up my intentions with a simple thank you.

Today the lovely ladies over at Style Me Pretty decided to feature our style shoot from this past fall. Check it out, and leave them some love on their new site while you’re at it.

Lots of moving and shaking going on over here. In the mean time, I’ve been saving this post for a snowy day.

For the most part, I’m against the idea of trying to do a winter engagement shoot. It’s always windy, freezing, or downright unbearable to be outside and watch our clients do their best to look warm.
In this case however, our beautiful couple didn’t have much of a choice. We met Deirdre over the summer when she and her mother were visiting the city. She told me that Ronnie, her fiance was currently overseas serving in the army. We must have talked for two hours about our families, the military, and what it’s like to live without someone for such a long period of time. Lucky for us, the stars aligned and we all got together for an afternoon this past December. (Which may or may not have given me the push to fall in love with winter engagement shoots.)
Deirdre and Ronnie, to say we’re looking forward to your wedding is an understatement. I feel as though you two could make the best out of any situation, and I can’t wait to meet the families that created such loving people. On top of that, you could probably both snag a job modeling for LL Bean. Just saying.
