We had the pleasure of shooting Amanda and Jeff when they came up to Boston for our wedding earlier this month. Amanda is my second cousin (I think that's how it works) :). The whole family came up to Boston, partied with us and we decided to do a little engagement shoot while they were here. We will be shooting their wedding next year in Maryland and we can't wait! We had a great time, although I was mostly catching up with her mom about our childhood antics.... So here are a few sneak peeks for the shoot along with a few words from the couple.
How did you two meet?
Being lacrosse players at Pfeiffer University; we knew of each other before we actually met one evening during a evening out.
Tell us the proposal story~
On November 13, 2015 we took the pups hiking at George L. Smith State Park. Over the 5 miles Jeff kept trying to find the perfect spot to ask THE life-changing question. Having no idea of Jeff's intentions I was determined to keep hiking further and not stop. When he did find a spot to stop for water there was a tick crawling on him, Bianca's [one of the dogs] chin was bleeding and it all seemed way to hectic for such a perfect moment to occur. The hiking went on. Until we all were finally relaxing on a floating dock did Jeff convince me to get the dogs some treats. When I turned around he was on one knee asking for my hand! It all fell into place and could have not asked for a more beautiful personal moment to be any better. We instantly started saying fiancé in our best French accent.
