There are times when you just connect with people, you know?
This was one of those times.
Earlier this year Alesha and Anthony told us of their plans to elope. They were jokesters, and this was to be their biggest prank yet. And so, we secretly went down to Florida and took their engagement photos, and then extra secretly met up with them in Savannah about a month later to be a part of their awesome day.
The big surprise was going to be revealed this past weekend, under the rouse of just a mere engagement party. And, they had put us in charge of divulging the secret! We put together a video (our very first ever) spanning their entire relationship . . . with a surprise ending of course.
They wrote to us the day after the party and said;
"People lost their minds last night! They were laughing, crying, clapping . . . They were coming up to us afterward telling us thank you, because the video reminded them of what marriage was all about."
We're so excited to be a part of this amazing time in their lives and even more excited that we get to stay friends with them until they get sick of us :).
THIS is the stuff we live for.
Here's the video:
The song choices are as follows:
Sunny (Mercury Edit II) - Marvin Gaye
Not My Own - Dustin O'Halloran
My Girls - Animal Collective
Stokkseyri - Jónsi & Alex
Daylight - Matt & Kim

Normally we don't do slideshows for engagement photos, but this couple is so special to us, and this song just seemed to fit them so well, that we broke our own rules.
Jeremiah won our Best Valentine's Day Ever! contest last February. We were so excited that a guy had a won because, well, we just were wanting a guy to win! We could see it all unfolding on Valentine's Day evening; him telling her he put their names in this contest, and that they had won this free engagement session. It would be so magical and fun!
And magical and fun are two great words that describe our time with them. We spent the whole night getting to know each other, sharing our stories, and finding out how they found each other in this crazy world. But one thing we noticed during the evening was how Jeremiah looked at Becki. It was such a full look. A look not just of love, but of immense thanks; thanks for what she had brought to his life. And so, when we heard this amazing cover of I'm Gonna Be, by Sleeping At Last, we immediately though of these guys.
Here are some of our faves from the shoot, but make sure to check out the slideshow below to see everything we're talking about :).

This spring we took a trip down to Florida to meet Paige and Rob, a couple we had Skyped with and emailed enough to feel like good friends when it came time to finally met face to face. We got to spend the whole evening together at the same location where Rob asked Paige to marry him. It was so fun to hear their story and see exactly where it all happened. That night we walked all over the resort, hopped over fountains, rolled around in the flower beds, danced in the streets, and probably annoyed all the actual paying customers (or at least peaked their interest). We ended the night with some much needed coffee, awesome Beignet's, and big hugs goodbye. These guys are awesome, and we seriously can not wait to shoot their wedding this fall. If we had this much fun in one night just image what we're going to get when we spend a whole day with them!
