It’s been a great pleausre coming to know Emily and Bobby. This engagement session is something like what I imagine an engagement session would have been like with Husbone and I, had we had engagement session photos done. It was so awesome! They picked me up at noon on Sunday, and we made trek across Long Island to frolic in fields found by the side of the road. We emerged from the expressway in a land frought with corn mazes, vineyards across the street from shopping centers, and great expanses of flat fields, punctured in the distance by cauliflower shaped trees that have not yet assumed the full characteristics of the fall season. After a lazy lunch of red wine and spanish cheese and the GORGEOUS spanish hacienda style Raphael Vineyards, we made our way around the area (someone get married there so I can shoot it!), jumping out of the car at our whimsy. Mostly goofiness, and a little bit of violence ensued. There might have been some name calling, but it was all in good fun. There occurred cartwheels, ear pulling, air attacks, grape throwing, and a little bit of sighing and kissing. And now, I am so excited to see what these two will bring when we frolic the Isle of St. Maarten for their wedding in May!

The weather was torrential. The wind blew in violent bursts, and rain poured. It was Saturday, and Natascha and Jeremy love each other so much it made my eyes wet to watch them devote themselves to each other (indoors). I am constantly fascinated by this amazing love that people share. Not just couples, but friends. I spent the morning with Natascha and her sister and her very best friends. When I first spoke to Natascha, she said she was going to keep the bridal party small, with her sister as maid of honor, his brother and his best man, and no bridesmaids or groomsmen. But when I met with them on Thursday, Jeremy said that for all the deep and intimate relationships they have with all these amazing people, they decided include them all. And then there were 10 bridesmaids. And 8 groomsmen. 18 people you want by your side when you marry the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. I find that pretty awesomely amazing.
