Andrea and Mike’s New Hampshire Engagement Session

Ok… this is might just be the craziest way of connecting with a couple we have experienced to date. Andrea and I met in line at a book signing. That’s right…. a book signing. It was a COLD night in Boston in early December last year. Young House Love, a blog that we are both huge fans of, was in town for their first ever book, and of course we were both there to meet them and have our books autographed by the great John and Sherry! If you want a new blog to obsess over and dream big with for your own home, please go there immediately following this post, (you have to meet Andrea and Mike first). Andrea and I were in line together and it was a looooooong line, so we struck up a conversation. As all first intro’s go, we both talked about what we do. I of course told her about our wedding photography and she told me about her own DIY blog, My Kinda Perfect. Since that evening, we have kept in touch and she even featured Welcome Them Home on her blog once. When her long-time boyfriend Mike proposed to her…. she emailed us like lightening! I firmly believe they should send a Save the Date to John, Sherry, Clara, Burger… and the bun. Yeah Andrea?

We met them in NH for a tiny hike up to a gorgeous overlook, taking in ALL that gorgeous foliage that is happening right now in the New England. It was a super laid back session, with lots of snuggling and laughing. We had a blast with them and know that their wedding will be much the same.

PS: Andrea’s eyes might just knock your socks off. Fair warning.

    I am SO PROUD to say that I was the third ‘party’ in line that made acquaintances with Andrea and her poss and Bethany. It was certainly the best book signing line I have ever been in (read: only). The pictures came out AMAZING! Bethany great job! And Andrea congrats on your engagement!
