Liz had been working with Audrey in labor and delivery at Greenwich Hospital for a little over a year when, one day, Audrey asked Liz if she might be interested in meeting her son, Travis, a handsome clothing designer and entrepreneur. Liz wasn’t dating anyone herself at the time. “So, I thought, ‘Sure, why not,” she told us.
The two began messaging via Facebook and eventually arranged to meet at a local restaurant/bar for some drinks. “On our first date, we sat and talked for three hours,” Liz said. ” On our second date, we sat and talked until after 2am, after five hours.”
An instant friendship was formed, and over the course of the next year, the two spent more and more time together, eventually finding themselves rather inseparable.
Travis admits, the boyfriend/girlfriend part of their relationship didn’t happen right away. “When we first met, I was in the middle of starting my own company (Tora Clothing) and wasn’t open to a relationship,” he said. “Despite that, Liz and I ended up hanging out on a regular basis and slowly, I realized she meant more to me than just a friend.”
Like his company, his love for Liz grew and blossomed and now this smitten pair is planning their Cape Cod wedding. They will say “I do!” later this fall at the stunning Wequassett Resort in Harwich. We met up with them last weekend for their bello love session. We were already excited to be a part of their wedding…having chatted for ages both on the phone and during a meeting last year…but after our most recent time together, now, we’re just giddy with excitement.
See for yourself….the adorableness that is dripping off these two lovies!
We started out at Hopkins Bakery in Brewster, which we were told makes amazing stuff. It’s also just down the road from Liz’s parents’ summer cottage. Sadly, it was closed when we got together, so the only sweetness we were treated to was that which Liz & Travis were serving up.
Such sweetness it was too….
He loves me. He loves me not. He LOVES me!
The look of love….
Laughing with your best friend is just the best…
Hello hotties….oh, and Travis’s cool shirt is his own Tora creation. (I secretly wanted to be a fashion designer…and took a bunch of elective classes in college. Just didn’t believe it was something I could really do. Hmmm…..hey Travis, need a women’s line???? )
After some fun at the bakery, we headed to the beach for sunset. The sky was filled with low lying clouds, which produced the most heavenly light, making pretty candids like this easy pickings….
And the rippled sand at the Brewster flats…I just can’t…the awesomeness of those lines is off the hook! Add in an adorably happy couple and well….
Two happy people…two happy photographers.
Two perspectives….one moment.
Wherever you go…I will follow.
Sunset, snails and smiling, happy people. Ahhhhhhh…..
Change the perspective and camera settings and voilá….magic.
Squeezing the last gorgeous light out of the evening with a little boardwalk snuggling.
And some more smooching…
And back to the cottage we go….hearts full and happy.
What better way to end a beautiful summer evening than with a swing in the backyard hammock? Heavenly!
Liz & Travis, thank you both so much for being so sweet, and so much fun to not only photograph, but just generally be around. You two are delightful together and as individuals and we’re so happy your mom, Travis, made this love connection. We can’t wait to meet her and give her a big hug! Special thanks too to Liz’s lovely folks, Jane & Steve, who are so sweet. We’re so sorry we couldn’t stay for some pizza with you all, though we very much appreciate the invite and hope to have a rain check! For now, we hope you all enjoy this little sneak peek…more to follow soon! Until then, big love & hugs, Chris & Andy xoxo
