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.

Tricia & Mike

October 29, 2013

Tricia and Mike’s story is one of my favorites, they were connected online and instantly knew there was something there, something special. Isn’t it amazing that in the world we live in today, as many people who think technology is only a necessary evil, that something as amazing as a relationship, love, and marriage can come from it?!!

I am so excited for these two and I can’t wait to be a part of their wedding next year. They are simply smitten with each other! Mike would do anything for his girl (and that’s the way it should be!). We spent a beautiful autumn afternoon together this past weekend for their engagement session, and I’m elated to share my favorites with you today!

These first few images were the first ones of the day, and once I saw them I knew it was going to be an awesome session! Nikki Santerre Photogrphy_Mike & Tricia_Gaines Mill Battlefield Engagement Session_0001 Nikki Santerre Photogrphy_Mike & Tricia_Gaines Mill Battlefield Engagement Session_0002 Nikki Santerre Photogrphy_Mike & Tricia_Gaines Mill Battlefield Engagement Session_0003 Nikki Santerre Photogrphy_Mike & Tricia_Gaines Mill Battlefield Engagement Session_0004Their feelings for one another are SO apparent.
