Kayla, Jed and I got together recently to document their love story – one that just coincidently began a block from our homes, more on that in a bit 🙂
Engagement sessions with BellaFotografica are all about a fun relaxed atmosphere and letting the couple be themselves. No-one comes into the session having been an accomplished model, but if you’re comfortable being around your fianc , ( 😉 ), then it’s going to show through in your photos.
What we get are *great* fun relaxed images of you two, photos you and your grandkids will treasure 🙂
OK, back to Kayla and Jed’s love story – it began one day years ago when Jed got up the courage to ask Kayla out in our neighborhood park, on this bench, next to these ducks 🙂
Their story and these images from their engagement photos brings to mind my favorite poem ever (we had it read at our wedding), by Eileen Ratner:
The sun danced on the snow with a sparkling smile,
As two lovers sat quietly, alone for a while.
Then he turned and said, with a casual air
(Though he blushed from his chin to the tips of his hair),
“I think I might like to get married to you”
“Well then”, she said, “Well there’s a thought,
But what if we can’t promise to be all that we ought,
If I’m late yet again, when we plan to go out.
For I know I can’t promise, I’ll learn to ignore
Dirty socks and damp towels strewn all over the floor.
So if we can’t vow to be all that we should
I’m not sure what to do, though the idea’s quite good”.
But he gently smiled and tilted his head
Till his lips met her ear and softly he said
“I promise, to weave my dreams into your own,
That wherever you breathe will be my hearts home.
I promise, that whether with rags or with gold I am blessed
Your smile is the jewel I will treasure the best.
Do you think then, my love, we should marry, do you?”
“Yes” she said smiling, “I do”.
Stay tuned, it’s going to be a beautiful wedding!
