I have to say that this blog entry is unlike any other that I have ever written. The reason is because I personally have so much history with this couple. It all started back in 2011 when Nicole and Rich were first beginning their wedding planning. They decided to book us for both photography and videography services for their big day. Between all of our planning meetings and emails, Nicole and I soon realized that we had very similar personalities and views. We both strive to be extremely open and realistic about life, but can also be very bull-headed and sassy. It was so easy for this “work relationship” to transform itself into an actual REAL friendship. And Rich is just a really nice guy… how could you not like this man?
Beside the fact that they are a fantastic couple to know and hang out with, they are also AMAZING in front of the camera. I’ve had the good fortune of being able to not only capture their wedding, but also shoot Nicole’s boudoir session, Nicole and Rich’s couples boudoir session and most recently, their maternity and newborn sessions. I loved being able to document my friend both glowing and very pregnant, then soon after as a beautiful new mother. It’s both an experience and an honor that I wouldn’t trade for the world. The amount of growth and change that each one of us has experienced since 2011 is pretty astounding.
It makes my heart soar to know that I’ve been able to capture such pivotal moments in Nicole and Rich’s lives. I hope to be able to continue creating beautiful imagery of both them and their sweet baby girl Mila. Congratulations guys! I hope you love these photos as much as I love you! 🙂
P.S. Rich, you can come and pick up you shoes from our house at any time now!!! Lol
