I must say, of all the cyber places you could have ended up, i’m certainly glad you chose to be here. Viewing my site is best accompanied by your choice of beverage; i recommend sweet tea, hazelnut macchiato, or prosecco. That, and 80's music, preferably from the breakfast club soundtrack.

Alexandra & Eric

August 8, 2013

I met Alexandra and Eric for the first time at their engagement session last night, but we spent our two hours together laughing like lifelong friends. Those are the type of clients that I love, people who open up and are so unafraid to be themselves during our time together.

I barely had to give them any directions, these two are so natural together (as they should be, seeing as they’ve been together for nearly six years). Eric would grab Alex, pull her towards him, nuzzle her forehead, make her laugh. It was perfect and helped produce the images below, some of my absolute favorites ever.

Eric’s family lives on the water, and was an incredible setting.

I went out on a limb and asked if they would be up for getting in the water. They weren’t skeptical at all! Eric just rolled up his pants, Alexandra hopped on his back, and they climbed right in. These images are incredible, so natural, and really demonstrate their personalities and how they feel about each other. Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0090 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0091 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0092 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0093 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0094 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0095 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0096 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0097 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0098 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0099 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0100 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0101 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0102 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0103 Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0104Nikki Santerre_Alex & Eric_ Lake Engagement_0012Alexandra and Eric, I’m so excited for you guys and can’t wait for your wedding next August!!!! <3
