Becca and Jeremy wanted their engagement session to take place at the very spot that holds the most meaning for them – their home and the land that surrounds it. So I ventured out to their beautiful piece of property in Eureka (with a stopover at nearby Eureka College) to photograph their love story. Shortly after the two met, Jeremy invited Becca to a bonfire at his house, a party. But when she showed up, there was no bonfire, and no other guests. She walked straight into the house (it was a party, right?) and they ended up talking for a long while before going out for a drink. The rest is history.
After about a month of dating, Jeremy made sushi for dinner, and I asked him to tell me about his family. He talked for the next two hours about his growing up. As unique as his childhood was, it mirrored my dad’s exactly. They grew up about an hour away in Northeast Ohio. That night I knew that Jeremy would someday be my husband.
It was meant to be when no matter how goofy I may be, Becca would love me unconditionally. No matter what was going on in my life, Becca loved me just the same, if not more than before. She not only ‘tolerated’ my quirky mannerisms and personality, but welcomed it.
Whether it’s four feet ankle-deep in mud, tenderly clasped hands, a happy tear cascading over a cheek, a hair-back laugh or a sun-drenched kiss,
The ones that move you. Bind you. Bring you together and keep you together long after the memory fades.
