“Walter! Walter!” She called to the boy walking across the UNC campus with a tennis rack in his hand. He turned around, to see this little asian girl waving him down.

 

Walking over with a big smile, she said, “Hi Walter! Remember me, from soccer?” His mind racing, he still could not recall who this cute girl was, “Oh yeah, hi!” But she quickly caught on, “You don’t remember me, do you? It’s Connie, we played soccer together.” They chatted for a little and agreed to meet up for a game of tennis soon.

 

The game of tennis went well and shortly after was followed by a dinner date, which was followed by several more dinner dates, good laughs, and eventually, a diamond ring.

The wind blew our hair in every direction as we cruised down the road in a yellow jeep. Pushing the clutch in and moving into third gear, the jeep bounced as giggles could be heard coming from the back seat.

 

 

“It’s a girl party!” Madison declared, clapping her hands with excitement. Ok, ok, I’ll admit, I was just excited! Swimsuit, windblown hair, and a yellow jeep. Da life!

 

 

Loving these sun and laughter filled days spent with my niece. And of course, I’ll never turn down an opportunity to jump in the water with the SPL underwater housing!

THE SECRET BEHIND MY UNDERWATER PHOTOS and garrett + melanie | CONCORD NEW HAMPSHIRE WEDDING

“He looked like he needed a place to sit, so I told him he could sit by us.” That was 5 years ago.

 

Cara was my neighbor when we were 6 year old girls living in Chicago, both the 5th of 8 kids. As military life has it, we parted ways when our families moved to separate States. That is, until good ol’ Facebook connected us again.

 

“I wasn’t even looking for a college yet. My friend wanted me to check out Liberty University with her, so I went along,” Cara recalls. When Dan walked into the classroom Cara and her friend were sitting in, he immediately caught her eye, “I thought, oh he’s cute!” As any best friend would do, Cara’s friend got onto Cara’s Facebook and not only friend requested Dan – but messaged him for her too – without Cara knowing. The Facebook messages progressed into texting and phone calls. Dan realized he liked this girl, a lot, so he put a ring on it!

 

Avid travelers, one of Cara + Dan’s favorite activities to do is road trip together. Including Niagra falls and cross country trips to meet each other’s family. Oh, and they love ice cream so, of course, we wrapped up the session with something sweet from Kilwins in downtown Wilmington.

A shimmering dress, a speechless groom, and hand written vows. 

 

You may remember Garrett + Melanie from their Strawberry Banke Engagement session in Portsmouth, New Hampshire where the fog fell like magic.

 

Upon seeing his bride for the first time, Garrett was speechless. When he could finally speak, he repeatedly said, “You are so beautiful! You are so beautiful! You are so beautiful!”  It’s an incredible honor to travel far and wide, telling stories and documenting such personal moments.

 

Scroll down and tell me if Garrett’s reaction to Melanie is not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen!

“I’m not quite sure where the key is…”

 

Less than 10 minutes after meeting Leo, he had my hands handcuffed behind my back, only to explain he couldn’t remember where he had put the keys. There is nothing I love more than a mischievous kid hiding behind a cute smile.

 

In 2005, the Navy moved my family up to Bremerton, Washington from San Diego, California. One of the first things we searched for every time we moved was a piano teacher. Without a doubt, Chris Rogers was one of the best piano teachers in my 10 years of playing!

 

After 16 months, the Navy moved us once again. This time to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, meaning we would miss Chris and Ruth’s wedding by just a few months. Seven years and two children later, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing their stunning family at Manchester State Park in Port Orchard, Washington.

 

…and the handcuffs came off just in time to pick fresh blueberries and raspberries from their garden!
