Erica + Drew . Country engagement

It’s always a beautiful thing when people come into your life at certain times and then pop back up again years later.  I was so lucky to have been asked to mentor Erica when she was in high school.  She loved photography and wanted to shadow a local photographer to learn.  I offered up my time and would pick her up periodically on my way through town to take her with me to shoots.  She was always SO quiet (very much the opposite of myself), rarely asked me for much, but watched me work away like a crazy person.  Always so kind, so sweet, and thoughtful.  Not only did I get to meet her, I got to meet her family.  I was asked to photograph her brothers wedding four years ago and then got the exciting text message that she had met the love of her life and was engaged.  Followed up with ‘will you photograph my wedding?’

This led us to this day.  The day I got to meet Drew.  The smile that lights up her face, the playful goofiness that they bring out in each other.  We adventured through the mosquito invested forest as I documented them singing, dancing and laughing .. wrapped up in each other for long periods of time like I was no where around.  Standing back, not having to say a word and photograph is perhaps one of the most exciting things and I can’t wait to watch these two say I do next year.  Erica, I’m so happy you found love and I’m so happy that you chose me to be a part of this exciting journey!! xo
