Eeeek! My best friend is ENGAGED!

I am beyond thrilled to share photos from Alexis and Scott’s “mini engagement session” with my blog readers! After the Polcyznski family session, we snuck in a few more photos of these lovebirds. Photographing these two melted my heart!

Alexis and I met the summer before our freshman year of college after we were randomly assigned as roommates for the upcoming school year! The two of us hit it off from the beginning, were roommates sophomore year, too, and have been a part of each other’s lives since.

I remember meeting Scott during our freshman year when he would visit campus to watch Alexis at golf tournaments. Their story has similar roots to my hubby and I – high school sweethearts that experienced long-distance dating, too. I think after hearing Alexis talk about her story with Scott and from those first few times of meeting him, I knew he was the one she would marry someday! I love high school sweetheart love!

Now, they’re planning a wedding, and what’s even better!? Another one of my best friends I met in the photography community – Kate Spencer – is photographing their wedding day! YAY… Jumping for JOY!

It’s true… Friendship is a beautiful thing, and it only gets better as the years go by! I cannot wait to see my beautiful friend as a BRIDE in 2018!
