DREW + HEATHER

LOVE, PHOTOGRAPHY, WEDDINGS

DREW + HEATHER

Drew always knew Heather was the one. It all started when they met in college 12 years ago. Drew was on a mission to get Heather to go out with him. One night when everyone from class went out he was able to grab a seat next to Heather at the bar. They talked and Drew had asked her if she would like to accompany him to New York City for a project that they were both assigned. She said yes and to this day, Drew says that that little trip into the city was the best date he has ever had. They ventured to the MET together, grabbed some dinner + drinks, and later on sat underneath the Brooklyn Bridge where he and Heather shared their first kiss. Unfortunately, the night came to an end and although they had a really amazing connection, Heather had moved away and they had lost touch for 3 and a half years.

Years passed and Drew had gone through some rough break ups. Out of nowhere, he had decided to text Heather.. and boy was it really out of no where. They hadn’t talked in years! He wasn’t even sure if she had the same number! Luckily she did …and ever since that one text, “Hello” they haven’t stopped talking! Fast forward to today, they are crazy in love with each other, happier than ever.

JOE + STACY

LIFESTYLE, PHOTOGRAPHY

JOE + STACY

This young couple was filled with life from the moment I met them! Joe + Stacy are a super fun and energetic couple with a passion for life. Their upbeat personalities immediately put me in the happiest mood every time i had the opportunity to meet up or chat with them. Something that inspires me is when a bride + groom to be is so over the top ecstatic to marry one another. These two shared that same vision for their wedding day. They had that spark in their eye as they finished each others sentences whenever I would ask about the big day. I am looking forward to that special time when I am engaged and I hope that I have what this couple had. That explosive excitement to spend the rest of their lives together was something I will always remember about them!

Stacy picked out the most beautiful blush tones that made for resilient detail shots! While I got shots of the girls jumping on the bed as they got ready, my second shooter was off capturing hilarious pictures of the guys laughing and goofing off together. Everything was so lighthearted, genuine, and fun. They made this day everything they envisioned it to be and more and I was so be the one to beautifully document it all!

JEFF + RENEE

LOVE, PHOTOGRAPHY, WEDDINGS

JEFF + RENEE

For these two it all started in elementary school. Renee had a huge crush on Jeff back then, but unfortunately in the 7th grade his parents decided to move and off he went with them. Renee would always have these random dreams of Jeff and that they were together. It’s as if she always knew all along. Years passed by & the two continued on their lives without each other… Until that one day that changed everything. They had reunited on Facebook and began to talk to each other, bring up old times, and ever since that one little conversation they have been inseparable. Isn’t it funny how timing is everything?

 

When Jeff + Renee told me how meaningful + significant the beach is to them, I felt an instant connection to work with them! I had shared the exact same feeling they had. The beach has been with me my entire life – through every amazing moment from my first real kiss to every sad moment like my first real break up. Its a place I go to to mediate when I am feeling stressed or upset and its also a place I go to when I’m happy or feeling inspired. My boyfriend PJ  and I often go at night when no one is around and stare up at the sky and just talk about life and our purpose in it. Something about the beautiful sound of crashing waves combined with the soft sand in between my toes and the smell of sea salt in the air..it all makes me feel balanced and centered..as if I am home. For Jeff + Renee, the beach was a very spiritual place. They felt connected to it for a lot of the same reasons as I did and so understanding that helped me have a clear idea of the vision for their wedding day!

 

Renee looked absolutely beautiful walking down the isle and as the couple said “I do” their close family and friends clapped + cheered for them. It was truly a beautiful ceremony with many laughs, many tears, and lots of love.
