claire + brad engaged

I think each of our lives is a big never-ending puzzle. The moment you think you’ve found the last piece, magically a new hole appears that needs to be filled. Claire’s life pre-Brad was pretty beautiful. A puzzle made up of so many accomplishments, the love of amazing friends, travel, an incredible and challenging career that she’s passionate about, and so many other things that make Claire who she is.

Then along came Brad. And he somehow magically fit into her puzzle. And she into his. This is what I love about the journey of finding that person to share your life with. You never know when it will happen, you never know what it’s going to look like, you never know how it will feel. ¬†And then you just know.

Thank you two for inviting me into this time of your lives. I can see how much you love each other and how much you respect each other, and I believe that is what is going to let you last a lifetime.

Eva + Rob Engaged

This session really reminded me why I love to do engagement sessions.

What I love love love about engagement sessions, is it gives each couple the chance to just ‘be’ for a while. Once we work out the initial jitters of getting their photo taken, of course! I love it when I can see the moment when a couple stops worrying about the camera and just starts enjoying each other. They take a breath, look at each other, and melt a little softer into each other.

In their own ‘normal’ clothes (not a wedding dress and suit, which is not regular attire for most of us), in a location that fits who they are, and spending some time focusing on each other.

As a photographer, this is my opportunity to get a feel for who my clients are. Come wedding day, I already know them and they know me.

Eva and Rob were absolute perfection this day! They are obviously an amazing couple, and they have such chemistry together. Both so thoughtful and so lovely. I loved every minute of this session between the orchards and the river.

Thank you two for having me as your photographer. I hope you enjoy your photographs and I cannot wait for your wedding in just a few weeks!
