When two people from different backgrounds who lead different lives meet and fall in love, it’s hard to believe there’s not some sort of serendipity at play. That was the case with Dane and Jenn. When you see them together, despite their differences, they’re so comfortable with each other and mesh so well that you’d think that everything in the world has happened just to bring them together.
Mike is a meticulous person. He’s been my first groom to carry a lint roller! (so smart, by the way). He was very involved in making sure the wedding day went as smoothly as possible. Angela is a laid-back person. She knows that Mike will take care of things and enjoy doing so. Individually they are so collected and cool.
Until they are together, that is.
Angela’s giddiness as she walked towards Mike for their first look was tangible and when Mike turned and saw her, he couldn’t help being overwhelmed by emotion. My cool and collected couple were suddenly giddy, emotional teenagers in love. Mike even surprised Angela (and us!) with a song he wrote himself that played as they left their ceremony.
It was such a pleasure to celebrate their wedding day with them.
When Mike and Mari told me they found the perfect spot for their forest-inspired session in Miami, I was skeptical. Miami is known for many things, but forests is not one of them.
The day of their session came and I stood corrected. They had indeed found a wonderfully unique spot and we had a great time walking around and dodging bugs. Sooo many bugs. Sometimes nature is prettier in photos than in real life.
It’s always an honor to make photographs for another photographer and this time was no exception. The last time I hung out with the Romeros, Andrea had just found out she was pregnant so it was a sweet treat to join them for Benny’s one year pancake celebration.
