There is such satisfaction in seeing someone you love find their match.  I was telling Jewel as we drove to shoot our wedding last weekend, that Greg is good enough for her. 🙂  I know that sounds funny, and no offense Greg, but this girl is a catch and a half.  And now she’s met someone that is also a catch and a half.

I feel a little bit proud, because Jewel and Greg started going out at the beginning of wedding season last year, right when we started working together, so I got to hear about him every week.  They are adorable.  I think they look alike.  And I found myself going “aaawwwww” during my whole edit.  Here are a few of my “aww”s

Jessica and Ben told me with giggles the bar that they met at (it’s not a bar they frequent).  I thought one day they might want to show their hypothetical kids a picture of them at the bar where they first laid sweet eyes on each other…

Last November Megan drove out to King City, MO, as she does every year on the anniversary of her dad’s death.  With her two black labs in tow, she arrived to spend some time on the hill where her dad is buried.  But this year was different.  As she pulled up, her boyfriend at the time, John, was standing there in a suit, waiting for her.  He asked her to marry him.

When John told me this story at our first meeting, I cried.  We all cried a little bit.  To me, it was so beautiful that John thought to take a day of sadness and give it a new life.

Megan and John met me out there with their two dogs.  Here they are on a quilt made by Megan’s great grandmother, with the tree in the distance that Megan’s parent’s used to snuggle under when they were young.  A very special engagement session.
