Cait & Ridiculously Photogenic Mike

"It was so funny to look through the pictures and see us trying to keep a straight face", writes Caitlin after browsing her gallery. This is just a small insight into how much fun these guys are. They are really fun-loving people to the core, and instantly dismissed any insecurities with laughter. You would never be able to tell that half of the time, they were stifling a grin.
I guess it doesn't count as breaking in if the gate is unlocked, and swings open when you 'bump' it.
These Doylestown colors were the perfect backdrop- the perfect reflection of Cait & Mike's personalities.
Please...if I could take this wall home...
There they go again, showing off their best GQ.

Look at the expression on Mike- one of the most photogenic, born-for-the-camera people I've photographed. No prompting, no posing, no requests...I just got great facial expressions every time!
My favorite.

yeeeeow! :) if this image doesn't speak volumes, i quit.
Cait being Cait...

This is Cait's absolute favorite. They both look fabulous!
Ok, pause. LOOK at those EYES! And those lips! My camera just loves her face!!

Thanks for the fun day, guys!

Eva & Dave

Dave & obviously, hopelessly taken by eachother that it awakens the hopeless romantic in me! They were hooked up by friends of theirs, and there was an instant connection. I asked Eva when she knew Dave was the one for her, and without hesitation, she and Dave simultaneously said "we knew". As in, right from the beginning. The best way I can describe their relationship is "timeless". I could tell in the little things Dave did for Eva that he is so completely captivated by her. He always put her first, went out of his way to make her feel comfortable, and through the lens, I caught tons of loving gazes that he threw her way. He watches her like he's mesmerized by her every feature. In contrast, you would expect Eva's independent, confident personality to dominate the relationship. Instead, she lets Dave's love and protection surround her, enabling him to be every bit of man every woman should have. Dave, Eva, it was a pleasure getting to know you both. Watching the two of you interact was such a blessing to my often stifled hopeless romantic heart. I'm confident your relationship will stand the test of time!

You are so beautiful, Eva.
Dave finally gets focal time. :)
I love the way he just gazes at her...this is one of many.

Ok, what photographer can pass up a boat?
They're naturals for the camera aren't they?

Gorgeous, you two!
I love, love, LOVE this. I keep coming back for more.

I keep coming back to this one too. I'm not sure what it is about it.
When I asked Eva to take a running start and jump onto Dave's back...
...the gymnast in her was thrilled. And oh did she run!
Dave...not as thrilled.
Eva's antique engagement ring- timelessly fascinating.

Doesn't matter how overcast the skies are- sunsets are always beautiful!
Trying out a little low-light.
A reflection of Eva's tender spirit and mysterious aura.
The shoot started off a little awkward- like most do- but by the end, they were open to possibility. They were laughing so hard at the absurdity of the situation that I had to force them to make serious faces.
A pavilion blaring "cupid shuffle" to the left, and 5/6 teens to the left, but they still kept their cool!

Deva, you guys made me proud!

Rebecca & Richard

Blogger and I had an argument, and Blogger won: I can't copy and paste text from the bottom of the document to the top (where it originated until the addition of pictures pushed it down). Please see the bottom of the post for Rebecca and Richard's story.

I had the pleasure of working with both Rebecca and Richard a few years back, and what I remember from them during that time in their lives-- when they were still single-- was that they were both admired by everyone around them. They are both good-natured, easy to talk to, upstanding people, and while the news of their engagement shocked me, it also immediately thrilled me: these two are such a sensible match! Since I didn't get to interact with Rebecca and Richard while they were a couple, I was anxious for the wedding day. That's what I like most about my job...seeing the way a couple loves each other, and translating that into photographic art. They awakened the hopeless romantic in me. Rebecca and Richard love with a quiet respect and a tenderness that is beyond the reach of words.

Rebecca and Richard, I wish you all the happiness this life can offer! May your marriage thrive and always be filled with the beauty I saw on your wedding day.
