Bela first contacted me four years ago to do engagement photos during one of my Massachusetts trips. She, Sean and I really clicked at that session, and they booked me to return to Massachusetts for their wedding. If you've never attended a Portuguese wedding, I highly recommend it. I'm pretty sure Portuguese and party are synonymous. I loved how much celebration took place at that wedding, complimented by a laid back bride and groom content to enjoy their friends and family. That contentment returned to our session last week. Bela emailed saying it was time to update their photos, and would I help them execute a plan and could we do it at the apple orchard not far from her hometown. So we met, and I finally got to meet Taylor, their dog child, and we doted on him while creating these images. I cannot imagine a better couple to be on the page that they're on in this season of their life. And I'm glad to be along for the journey, both visually and as a friend.
Everything about these photos speaks to what I love about being a photographer. The continuity and the story and the love. Capturing those elements in our lives is invaluable. I truly believe this, and I'm honored to be a part of the equation. Here is Bela and Sean's story, today.
Can't wait til April 2014 when Bela and Sean get to meet the little feet that will fill those shoes. I'm already brainstorming newborn session ideas. Big contratulations, my friends!
