Every couple’s lifetime spent together starts with the dating relationship.  That’s why I love engagement sessions.  It’s the documentation of the first chapter of a life together.  One half of this particular couple is someone Sean and I have had the pleasure of knowing for quite some time.

Michael was a dear friend in our high school days.  A group of us spent the summer after our senior year going to movies and it was through Michael and his love of motion pictures, that I came to truly appreciate the artistic nature of films.  He opened my eyes to the symbolism, the visual poetry, and all of the little stylized choices made by the directors that I had previously overlooked and I have never watched movies the same.  Thanks Michael. :0)

When Sean and I got engaged, Michael was one of the first people I called because I knew that I wanted his artistic eye for our wedding videography and even though it’s not really his thing, he graciously agreed to film it for us.  That video is still today one of our most treasured possessions!  We were so happy to reconnect all these years later and find Michael so completely in love with Greta, the most beautiful and sweet young woman you could ever meet! :0)  Their wedding is sure to be absolutely precious and we count ourselves lucky to have been asked to be a part of it!

Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session, marking the end of our maternity leave and the kick-start of our journey into being both business people and parents.  Wish us luck! ;0)
