jenny & gerick engagement in the woods

jenny and gerick are new friends of mine. I met jenny working as a forever bride member at a networking event last year. I immediately knew our personalities clicked. this summer, before even meeting her other half, gerick proposed. I blame it on busy schedules and the fact that jenny and I normally just wanted an excuse to eat good food and talk girly things, without our mates. from the moment I met gerick, I liked him. after meeting a few months ago to take some shots on my 35mm we agreed to do it again - but this time, while camping. couple camping. mid october we drove out to camp on lake maria. we wandered the trails til dusk and captured some real love. drank a bit of champagne and hard cider and got silly. enjoy this mix of digital and film.


kellie & justin wedding

looking back on how many e-mails and texts kellie and I have shared, it is no wonder I had trouble holding tears back during their ceremony. this marked my first wedding back in the game after having a baby. I think I really lucked out. after hours of conversation shared over every food item on the menu (thanks to justin), family photos, engagement photos and a secret boudoir session from him to her - it is safe to say my relationship with the eastmans is one I will cherish for life. congratulations to both you beautiful souls.
