Summer & Ed

Being engaged is such a magical time of life. Yes, there is stress of planning a wedding and the merging of two lives, but it's also filled with so many special moments and things that you will remember for the rest of your lives. I can clearly remember the 5 short months that Seiji and I were engaged. Every day was filled with expectation and promise of the life we were about to embark on together. It was a truly wonderful time.

When we met Summer and Ed, there was so much excitement in them. The entire day before heading out to meet them I just knew it was going to be a special evening, a special session. Once we started talking to them, taking in their story, we found out that their own love story was so similar to ours. It was like glimpsing into the past. It was fun for us to be reminded of those amazing days we had together, and for them to see us working side by side, 9 years later, still filled with such love for one another.  I'm always honored to work with such wonderful people, but this felt even bigger, it was kismet. 

Maybe it's just that I adore these two, but this really may be my favorite engagement session to date in my career. It was magic. 

Jamie & Matthew

Jamie first booked with us over a year ago. As always were were thrilled for her to book us for both film and photo because, as you know, we love working together. Since they were not living in New Mexico at the time, we didn't get to meet the right away, which is actually the norm for us. We noticed that Jamie always liked our social media posts and seemed so excited to work with us, which is seriously the best! There's nothing better than getting to work with people who love what we do.

I finally got to meet Jamie a week before the wedding when she came in to do some portraits in the studio prior to the wedding day. We had SO much fun, and Jamie is so breathtaking (scroll and see!) that I knew the wedding was going to be a knockout. Of course, the wedding day was filled with so many beautiful moments, but my favorite part was the palpable love Jamie and Matthew share. Their love for each other is obvious, their love for their puppies is ADORABLE, and the love from family and friends made everything perfect.

The day was an intimate celebration that was truly special for us to be part of. I'm SO glad that we get to share part of it with you here now. 

We are dedicating ourselves to much more blogging this year, so we will definitely have more love stories to share (including Jamie and Matthew's film!), so stay tuned...
