Med-school sweethearts who were only a “window” apart– a very sweet story that you won’t want to miss…
Med School Sweethearts: Liz & Mike met during their first year of med school, 8 years ago. They were in the same class together, and connected when they were introduced by mutual friends.
A Window Apart: They both spent a great deal of time studying during the first year, Mike at the library and Liz in her apartment. Ironically, the area of the library where Mike would sit was exactly across from Liz’ apartment.
I C U: They would text each other while they studied, he in the library and her in her apartment, which was kind of cute because they could see each other through the window sometimes. I love the photo above because they are on the same side of the glass together and I’m shooting through the window. 😉
Friends first: Mike and Liz have a lot in common and personalities that are very similar– they both are honest and straight forward, they always know where eachother stands on things. Their relationship is founded on trust and friendship– such a solid foundation.
Gardens: Liz has always pictured herself getting married in natural surroundings– she also loves color, so she chose Longwood Gardens for their engagement photography session and Tyler Arboretum for their wedding.
Photography: As for their wedding and engagement photography, Liz & Mike were looking for a photographer with creativity, who was able to offer depth and an artistic point of view.
Sweet proposal: Mike planned an elaborate proposal involving cupcakes and the stunning diamond engagement ring below. What a pretty ring!
Naturally: It was a windy day, so everything, including Liz’ hair was getting tossed by the wind, I love this moment, because it captures the natural chemistry and friendship and chemistry between these two. Also you can see Liz’ freckles– adorable!
Silly-side: While Liz and Mike are both serious about their studies, they both have playful, goofy, cheesy sides, too. I like this image for that reason…
Spring Color: It was so refreshing to see the bright blue sky and nearly florescent green buds peeking from the tips of the tree branches during their shoot. I also thought it was awesome that her dress (a fantastic anthropologie find) matched the hue of the sky!
Grow old with me: I’ll end with a timeless photo that I could totally see Liz & Mike re-creating on their 50th wedding anniversary ;). It reminds me of the poem by Robert Browing that says, “Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be.”
Liz & Mike, thanks for reaching out to me, I hope these engagement photos were just the sort of unique, creative images that you were hoping for! Thanks for sharing your story with me– I’m looking forward to your wedding day!
