I can’t tell you how honored I was when my brother Alex and his fiancee Alexandra asked me to shoot their engagement photos. I can’t believe my brother’s getting married! He’s young enough that I remember when he was born — I’m so glad I’ve gotten to watch his relationship with Alexandra bloom.
Alex and Alex agreed not to kiss until they got engaged, so they’re pretty new to this whole smooching thing.My brother is still having a hard time remembering to close his eyes. It’s so cute.
We drove a short ways from my parents’ house in Powell to Glacier Ridge Metro Park for these pictures because Alexandra really wanted to take pictures in a field. The landscape there was just what we were looking for!
Cool story: That quilt top that they’re laying on was made by my grandmother and great grandmother and has never been finished. Isn’t it cheerful?
These kids are a big fan of everything vintage, so they busted out their classiest duds for the second half of our session.
Alexandra, you are gorgeous.
Another cool story: I took this pic of Alex-squared in March.
In September, they bought this antique ring at that very store! Coincidence? (OK, yes, yes it was.)
So, to brag on my brother for a second — he’s the only guy I’ve photographed who didn’t flinch when I asked him if he could dip Alexandra. “I dip her every time she’ll let me.”
Oh, my Alexes, I love you so much! I can’t wait for your wedding… Words fail me when I think about how special you two are to me.
