Tom & Amy’s summer arboretum engagement session was the freaking best! I knew it was going to be good when Amy said they wanted to start their session off with mojitos (their signature drink). What a way to kick the evening off! I loved every moment of it.
This session was a special one. Tom & I have been close friends since high school, and I’ve gotten to know Amy and her family over the last 4+ years. These two are so lovely together. Not only are they obviously beautiful, but they have amazing chemistry and are so cute together. I already knew that of course, but it became even more evident to me during their engagement session. The weather was perfect, the light was golden, the smiles were big, and the laughs were real. We wandered all over the Arboretum, Dow’s Lake, and the Experimental Farm. They were up for anything and we had a blast.
It was one of those sessions that gave me so much energy. This one reminded me exactly why I love this job. Capturing two people being themselves, having fun, and obviously in love makes my heart want to burst. All of those perfectly imperfect moments – you know the ones where the wind is blowing your hair in your face, but it doesn’t matter because you’re with your person – makes my soul so so so happy.
Thank you Tom & Amy. It was the absolute best, and I love you both. Xo
