A sofa and a chair is where it began for him. 
While the people were hustling around them at their job, he remembers Jamie. 
Their conversation. 
The random things about life they spoke about. 
You know...those sweet nothings...that mean everything.

As he so finely puts it, 'little did she know that was when I began using, so
subtly, my amazing charm to win her over'. 

He may have a point, but I think he may have sealed the deal when he knocked 
on her door at 3:30am after driving five hours to surprise her. 
All because he missed her.


When I met Jamie and ummm Jamie (more on that later), 
I loved how happy they were. 
They grinned from ear to ear while sharing their ideas for their wedding day. 

I love when a couple shares that enthusiasm with each other and with me. 
A day that you will remember for the rest of your life - needs to be appreciated. 
They were doing just that.

While planning their engagement session they suggested going back to the place where it all began...
which was Danford's Inn...

a waterfront inn...not to shabby of a place to work... 

They posed on their own too!

and my theme for the week...a frame within a frame...

So let me preface this next set. 
Jamie is a Giants fan and Jamie is a Jets fan...

See if you can solve the riddle...

I'm going to let you all in on a secret. 
The next shot is one of my favorites and I'll tell you why. 
It's not perfect and it's not fancy.  
But the expression is there. 

If you catch a man looking at his soon to be bride, juuuust right...there is a softness 
that comes over his face. I adore that.

That expression, tells a story.

Thank you both for being up for a fun session. 
Thank you for humoring me. 
Thank you for trusting me. 
Thank you so very much for letting me be a part of your upcoming 'big' day.
I can't wait until then...when you will share the same last name....
well, the same first and last names! ; ) 

A quick thank you to Jill and Cameron who sent this amazing couple my way. 
I say it often, but I'll say it again. 
'Birds of a feather flock together'. 
'Amazing'...seems to run in your circle ; ) 

I'm looking forward to seeing you all this summer in the Hamptons on Jill and Cam's BIG day!


Help this couple reach 20 comments and they receive a complimentary gift!

I am not even surprised at how amazing these pictures turned out. This couple is beyond beautiful (inside and out) and it has made my day to see them captured so perfectly. I am proud of their desire to grow together and their endless love. It isn't often to come by a couple with so much generosity and a shared enthusiasm for life, love and family. I love these two SO much and am so blessed to be able to call them my family!!! <3333femalecounterpart<333

Sometimes in life a person finds their better half. Sometimes in life a person finds their equal. But sometimes in life, they find all of the above and then some. When the day comes for you two to be wed I will know one thing. That if a Giant fan can marry a Jet fan, then love really does conquer all.

Jill T said...

Um...forgot to say the life saver shot is ADORABLE! Definitely my favorite! :) Sorry...had to add! :)

When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No... don't blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love, itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away.And you two truely show what love is.
Great pictures
