I met them in winter, for an unforgettable engagement session on one of the coldest days in Minnesota. Then they moved back to the Pacific Northwest. Olivia and Sam are the type of humans you immediately know have a heart of gold. Just being around them you can feel their calm presence, and peaceful way of moving through the world. The amount of times their parents told me, they were just the best kids. They had grown up just 4 minutes apart, dated in high school, but moved states away for college. Yet, they were meant to make it last, and finally, after 7 years, celebrated their wedding day on a rainy northwest October. I am forever grateful that they flew me out to continue to document that story.
Also having Amanda, from ARBR Pictures, along to be a second photographer was simply the best. That girl! Her friendship and talent are both a treasure.
