Oh hey there BLOG! Yes! I have a blog- sometimes it’s easy to forget, but I love sharing here so I’m making an effort to remember :) Seeing as they just got married this past Saturday I thought it would be nice to share some of my favorites from Meranda and Nate’s engagement session. We took their engagement pictures last May in one of my favorite spots- the UMaine Ornamental Gardens. We hit it right at the peak of the spring blooms and you’ll see why it’s probably my favorite place ever to go for engagement pictures. The color alone is what brings me there daily during those two special and fast weeks where the blooms are just coming out after a muddy April.
The story of how I know these two is so fun to tell! I actual met Meranda in HIGH SCHOOL over 10 years ago. We were in separate grades but took photography 1 together and I remember having to take portraits with her as a class assignment! We each went on our own paths after high school and winded up working in the same school together a decade later. I worked in a Pre-K room with her husband (then fiancé) Mr. Nate (They try to make me call them by their real human names- Nate and Meranda instead of Mr. Nate and Ms. Meranda but I just CANNOT!). I’m so thrilled to not only have photographed their wedding but to now call them great friends of mine. More about the wedding later! For now here is a glimpse at their engagement session.
