Tamara and I have been friends since our first year of high school, when we were in the same band and gym class and discovered how fiercely competitive the other person was. We used to pass notes back and forth in English class and she hated that my nickname for her was "Big Mac". She's such a funny, caring, and great person to be around and I'm so glad she found somebody just as great to be around. The night before Greg planned to propose (at Disneyland -- 100 cool points to you, Greg), he was so nervous about ruining it that he couldn't sleep and almost ruined it by blurting it out to Tamara in his sleep-deprived state. Luckily Tamara never suspected a thing, and now they're getting married at the church her family founded way back in the day. I can't wait.
Sometimes there are actions that seem insignificant or ordinary but when you focus on them a little harder, you realize just how important they are. The laugh ringing out from an inside joke. The wry smile right before the kiss. The gentle hand held out as second nature. These are the things I'm most interested in capturing.
These two are the bees' knees. Carrie and Mike decided to have their engagement session at Carrie's mom's acreage, which was such a beautiful location. We had a great time walking around the property, narrowly avoiding stepping into a wasps' nest at one point. Carrie and Mike were such troopers, willingly getting bitten by mosquitoes and climbing over gates to maneuver through swampy grass to get to the good spots. Mike proposed to Carrie by building her a swing, which I find incredibly sweet and sums up Carrie and Mike incredibly well - so thoughtful and caring. I can't wait to shoot their wedding in August.
Rae and Craig just make so much sense. The love the both of them have for each other is so overwhelming and evident that there is no doubt in my mind that they are perfect together. I'm a big believer in love not necessarily being easy, but natural. Rae and Craig make it look effortless. The two will be getting married in May and I am so excited to be able to document it for them. After this engagement session, I can already tell it's going to be amazing.
