When Kaelah and Nick first reached out about scheduling their anniversary session we had planned on shooting in Philadelphia, where we all live, but because Kaelah was so drawn to my lake sessions, we decided to photograph in my absolute favorite East Coast town, Camden, Maine.
In Kaelah's first email to me she said this: "your work - it's raw, it's real, it's the daily, mundane moments that are just as special as the big, grandiose gestures - the elements that you capture just feel right." I knew from the moment I read those words that working with the two of them would be an absolute dream. Those daily mundane moments ARE as special as the big ones, that's what my work is all about. That's what I'm all about, and when I get to work with people who believe that and who celebrate the raw and the real, it's magical.
(Don't worry - we hustled out when we saw this and waited until it was safe again!)
