People often ask me who my ideal client is. I think about it for a while, but it always goes back to the same thing. My ideal couple is in love. They're best friends who are always laughing. They cherish each other and have a way of spreading their immense love for each other to the people around them. Their wedding is all about the celebration of their marriage. These are the couples I crave to get to know and photograph. And that is who Melissa and Alex are. Best friends in love… the best way to be.
I know Melissa and Alex from when they were still in high school (or middle school), and I was already old. I loved seeing their relationship grow and was so excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding. Interestingly enough, Melissa's dad was one of my dad's groomsmen; her aunt when to college with my mom and her cousin is my oldest friend. And Alex's mom and I are New York friends. She's the one who introduced me to my hairstylist who cut off all my hair!
We had a fun (and windy) day at Land Ends for their engagement session. I can't wait to photograph their wedding this Sunday. Yay! I'm so excited!
