Today is a very special day in my life. It is the anniversary of the day I married my favorite person in the world.
I have been thinking a great deal about that day. “What was I doing at this time two years ago? This was when ___ happened…” So many wonderful memories, both large and small. I then start to consider our engagement period as a whole. From that beautiful, tears-of-joy moment of “yes!” through the sometimes stressful planning, the little dramas, the excitement, that brief period in our lives is one of the happiest times in my life-second only to the period from “I do” to present.
I’m feeling very grateful today
Yuri and I never got to do an engagement session. We were living in two different cities spending every weekend we could together but somehow in the rush of planning a wedding in six months we didn’t get to document that wonderful engagement time with photos…
Maybe that’s one of the reasons I love giving engagement sessions to other people. I leave every e-session completely in love with love. When a couple invites my camera into their relationship for a few hours I get to remember that time in my relationship’s life with a renewed sense of joy. I have the distinct privilege of telling the story of another couples’ love in the every day sense (as opposed to the heightened magic of the wedding day…) I am a big fan.
So, with this in mind I share with you (finally, after way too many sneak peeks) the e-session of Lana & Jared. This beautiful pair are two of the sweetest, kindest, and most lovely individuals I have ever met and I am so honored to share with you these images.
Lana & Jared were introduced by a mutual friend during their time at John Carroll University in Cleveland. There was an instant connection and, as Lana puts it so perfectly, “…the rest is history “
These two completely adore each other:
and are completely adorable!
I just love the light, airy romance of these next few…
Jared & Lana, I am so honored, excited, and thrilled for your wedding in a few weeks!!! Enjoy these final engagement days as they fly by more swiftly than imagineable!
