From babysitter to wedding photographer.
I've known Emily's family my entire life. We grew up across the street from one another, our families were in the NYPD together, we took vacations together....basically, we did everything together! I spent many nights babysitting Emily and her little sister, along with our other neighbor Brittany, who is also a #jennifernicolebride ;) The 4 of us were pretty inseparable, and we have tons of really embarrassing pictures to prove it.
Photo cred: Emily's mom ;)
Eventually Emily and her family moved out of our town and then again to another state, but anytime I was near by- her family always welcomed me in with open arms. Who knew years later I would wind up back in the same state!
Her mom arranged for Brittany and i to come surprise her at her high school graduation party...
...and again for her college graduation party.
From Graduation parties and family BBQs and everything in between, we are always having a good time!
It's such a great thing to be able to keep in touch with old friends and neighbors, all of us being in Florida now really makes that easy!
When Emily reached out to me to photograph her wedding, I was ecstatic!
I still can't believe she's getting married! Little Emily is no longer little anymore. She's a beautiful young lady, a pediatric nurse, basically a badass saving lives - and a soon-to-be bride!!!!
I had never met Clint, so I asked that we meet up for coffee and get to know him before our engagement session together.
Guys, he is the sweetest thing! I could tell immediately they were a perfect match. We laughed the entire night and it definitely shines through in these images.
I always describe my couples as being joyful, genuine and vibrant and these two are the perfect examples of this.
Emily, I am so very proud of the woman you have become. You quite literally light up a room when you walk in. You are smart, happy-go-lucky and you have a contagious smile. I really cannot wait to see you spend the rest of your days with your best friend. And Clint? I know you will take great care of her, I can see your genuine heart and I'm so very happy for you both.
Emily and Clint, we are so very happy for you both to start this journey together. It is evident that you were brought together because you're each other's perfect match. We are honored and thrilled to be able to share this intimate day with you, and we CANNOOOOOOTTT WAIT FOR JANUARY!!!!
Lots of love,
