We are sooooo very lucky to have so many of our couples come to us through happy family or friends, who we’ve worked with for their wedding or special event. Such was the case with super sweeties, Sarah & Brett. Sarah is friends with one of our brides from a few years ago, Kate, who recommended us. Without even meeting us, Sarah & Brett hired us to document their wedding, which always feels really good and is just the hugest compliment.
It’s like they trust us, without even needing to look us in the eyes and see for themselves who we are and what we’re about. Knowing couples like Sarah & Brett put such faith in us right away always makes us want to work extra hard for them….perhaps to prove ourselves or perhaps just out of an enormous appreciation for their blind faith.
We had spoken on the phone prior to them hiring us, but we didn’t actually get to meet Sarah & Brett until their engagement session two weekends ago. With their wedding planned for here on the Cape in just a few weeks, they thought it would be fun to do their engagement session in the city, around their neighborhood, where they live. And, we agreed.
So, we met at their apartment in the Back Bay and had a lovely afternoon of giggling and getting to know one another. As we expected, Sarah & Brett are super sweet, easy going and clearly smitten with one another. They met about a year and a half ago, as many of our couples do, on an online dating site. Brett was actually the first guy Sarah had met through the site. And, after their date….she never needed to go back to the site. They both knew…this one was a keeper. And nine months later, Brett proposed on stunning Seven Mile Beach in the Cayman Islands…man, I wish we’d been there to document that!
Happily, we will be along for this next exciting milestone, as this sweet pair says, “I do!” at the gorgeous Chatham Bars Inn Resort, here on Cape Cod. We can’t wait to be a part of all of the love & celebration yet to come. For now, here’s a look at our happy love birds.
We began their session on the steps of their Back Bay apartment, which is quintessential Boston at its best. Wrought iron, classic brownstone and two young, smitten lovers….what more do you need?
We took a little walk with Sarah & Brett to explore some of the places they frequent.
Including the Public Garden, where weeping willows and cheeky grins make for great photo fodder.
You + Me = Will-oways be together. That doesn’t really work, but you get my drift.
In your eyes I see our future and in your arms I know it will be bright.
Sometimes just looking into each other’s eyes and being in the moment is all you need…
Don’t know why I love this next one so much….they both just look so good, so cool. Plus, what’s not to love about the iconic Public Garden Bridge.
Hey hot stuff….
Sometimes when we’re walking around with our couples, Andy or I will see something that’s not really anything, but you just know it’s going to make for some cool photos….such was the case with this super long bench. So, we asked Sarah & Brett to snuggle up and then just pretend we weren’t there….which, with two of us, isn’t always easy to do.
But, these two are so comfortable together, they made it look easy.
Hey Brett…look over here for a second. And, BAM! You guys are adorable!!
Then over to the Public Library, where Brett has been spending a fair bit of time lately, studying for the GMAT exam. You got this, Brett!
The look of love.
Laughing together…those big, belly laughs…it’s just the best!
Sarah & Brett, thank you so much for choosing us to document this exciting and super special time in your lives with us! We can’t wait to be there with you when you say, “I do!” to meet your family & friends and not only document all the love & goodness surrounding you, but to share in the spirit of the day. We hope you love these photos…and the rest still to come…as much as we loved spending the afternoon with you both!! And, a special shout out to Kate & Hugh for singing BelloPhoto praises. Hope to see you both at the wedding!! Big hugs to all, Christine & Andy xo
