I first met Alyssa through a very close friend of mine. When I first met her, I knew that I wanted to photograph her wedding. Let’s say we really connected on our first cup of coffee! In walked Patrick and now I knew I truly wanted to photograph this beautiful couple’s wedding.
Alyssa and Patrick have know each other for many years. They met in high school and had most of the same friends. Every party and get together, they would find themselves together all the time. After awhile Alyssa’s friends would tell her that there was something in the way Patrick would look at her that made them believe that he was in love with her. All she would say was that they were just good friends.
Time passed quickly in high school and it came time to go off to college. Turns out, Patrick went to the same college as Alyssa. Everywhere she went, there he was! Still, Patrick did not confess his love for her. Finally, she told him that she was in a relationship and I guess that is all that it took. He spent the next few months writing her poetry and songs to see if he could win her love. After several months, Alyssa ended her relationship and started dating Patrick. They fell in love pretty quickly and spent a few years dating and finishing their schooling. Soon it came time that Patrick proposed. Alyssa was delighted and knew she had loved him all this time.
