Oh I adore this couple. Just everything about them — their love for one another, their personalities, their sense of humor — everything! The first time I met these two for their wedding consult, Sammi made me cry, in a good way! She mentioned she had been following my work for a long time and knew all along she wanted me to be her wedding photographer, even when she wasn’t engaged yet. I instantly teared up knowing she’s my exact ‘type of bride.’ I’ll forever be shocked when people tell me they’ve known for a while they wanted me to shoot their day and it was so different when Sammi told me. I instantly wanted to scoop her up and hug her so tight!
We met for their engagement session in Yorktown and right off the bat, I gave Rob a new name… Frankie. Because lets me honest, he looks like a Frankie!! LOL!! I then gave him another name, and then another after that…randomly calling him by his actual name throughout the entire session, haha!! We laughed each time I used a different name and then Sammi got a new name too, LOL!!! Call me weird, I’ll own it. I do random little oddball things like this at each session so my clients can see my personality right off the bat!! These two were like old friends and I just adored our time together.
The way Rob looks at Sammi will make your heart just melt into a puddle. He knows he sees forever when he looks at her. He mouthed “I love you” each time I had them look at each other during a shot. He kissed her every chance he got and squeezed her tightly during the up close and personal shots. I just adored their love for each other. THIS is why I do what I do! Knowing I can leave a legacy behind for these two…to leave behind their love story, just makes my heart swell with happiness.
Sammi and Rob, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to capture all of these important moments for you and your family!! I’m so beyond honored and can’t wait until your special day!! Health and happiness always, XO!
