A little over a month ago I was privileged to fly out to California to photograph a sweet couple and their newborn son, Declan. I went to college with Adam and Roni and was able to be a part of photographing their engagement as well as their wedding here in Ohio. They are one of those couples that you only have to be around for a few minutes to be able to see how much they love and respect one another. So when they asked me to take little Declan’s newborn photos, I was ecstatic! I am honored by the fact that I have been able to photograph some of the major “firsts” in their lives. Of course, I would choose the California sunshine over the Ohio uni-cloud any day! No brainer! So without further ado, meet Declan Rex.
When Steph contacted me to photograph her engagement and wedding I was just ecstatic! 🙂 Steph is my little sister’s roommate and dear friend. I have only met her a couple times but the way my sister talks about her made me that much more excited to be a part of this special time in her and Matt’s life. It was a partly crumby – partly gorgeous fall day in Indiana when I got to photograph their engagement photos. Matt and Steph were/are so very genuine and basically laughed the whole two hours they were in front of the camera. And of course Bieber puts it best – cause when “you smile, I smile”. I totally got my ab workout for the day. I got to hear all about how they met and what they love the most about each other. The way they look at one another and their yearning to always be better and set a good example is inspiring. I can’t wait until next summer to celebrate their wedding with them!
They aren’t big on PDA and this is the reaction I got after I had them kiss. This series makes me laugh 🙂
Steph was so thoughtful and wanted to incorporate a hammock since it was something she thought Matt would enjoy. After several failed attempts and two different hammocks we succeeded. It made for some hilarious photos 🙂
