I just love when I get to be a part of a really special and sentimental place with my couples. Sami and Mike both met at Norwich Lake one summer day when they were just teenagers. Be still my heart...Summer....Young Love...Its the best! I love hearing their Love Story and especially enjoyed being able to share their love for each other back where they met.
OH! How I am smiling from ear to ear from our adventures that beautiful summer evening. Sami and Mike have this kind of love that you makes you feel loved when you are around them. Seriously its so amazing. We started our session out on a very shaky dock just as the sun was starting to get that soft golden light. My favorite kind. I swear they were mostly laughing at me at this point because the wind was making the dock move and I had very little room to move around without falling in. Hey - anything to make my clients laugh. What impressed me the most was that these two had their session all planned out. MIke's dad pulled up his boat for us to ride to the Rock in the Lake. This was such a fun idea but especially meaningful as Mike just finished his service with The Air Force over the last 4 years. We even had a beautiful sighting of a bald eagle...SOOO cool...Such an awesome honor to photograph them enjoying the summer sun and their sweet love on that rock.
We finished our session back at the rolling hills of beautiful Huntington. The views were just breathtaking and really was the perfect setting for the rest of Sami and Mike's Engagement Session. After a quick change of outfits - we enjoyed the remaining streams of sunshine and the fantastic summer night. I especially enjoyed that Mike and Sami are huge New England Patriot fans. I always encourage my couples to wear what they feel comfortable in or that portrays who they are.
As twilight approached us - we wrapped up the session with Mike's Harley and his sweet love Sami. These two were not only full of adventure but embraced every creative moment I wanted to try. I am so excited to be a part of your love and journey Sami and Mike and I am counting the days till your wedding next year. Enjoy a few of my favorites!
