Steve & Amy, these two are it. They are hilarious, down to earth, relaxed yet outgoing, calm yet super driven. Even the way they hold each other just really shows the deep respect, friendship and love that they share. I have known Amy since she was in 5th grade because our families our close friends.  I really love Amy’s smile and just her sense of warmth. This has been her personality since she was 12 years old, and its so fun to capture it now… all grown up.

We started their session in the studio and then stopped and got some chai before we braved the cold once again. I always feel so honored when a couple chooses to open their hearts and share their story with me. We sat for about an hour just talking about their story and their wedding plans. It was so great and utterly refreshing. My best sessions are filled with stories, laughter and realness (if that is even a word) meaning… I want to capture who you are, not just posed moments and we get there by being real.

I don’t think they had any idea that I was playing around out my HD video, but I had a blast just capturing Amy tell their proposal story. Just look at the way she looks at Steve and vice versa. LOVE it. My favorite line would have to be ” I lost my brain…”
