Danielle and Nick were a joy to work with. We all went to the same high school (Go TC, let’s GO!) and Danielle’s sister-in-law was actually my cheer coach! Isn’t that fun?! Since Danielle and Nick are high school sweethearts and have been together for over 6 years, they had such fun stories to share and I loved getting to know them better through our session.Â Here’s a little snippet from their wedding blog on how they met:
Nick sat in front of me in 8th grade history class. Behind me in history class the summer before Sophomore year, and then behind me in AVID during Sophomore year. One day he wrote on my balloon before a soccer game, the next we were passing notes during class, and the rest is history : )
Danielle and Nick’s love is sweet. Yes, sweet like chocolate! And when I found out Nick’s favorite movie is Forrest Gump and he made Danielle watch it with him…in the limo… on the way to senior prom, I knew we needed to include a box of chocolate in the shoot!Â
We headed out to Santa Monica Pier for the second half of our session and we were a little bummed to find that everything was covered in FOG, but they were so positive about the whole thing.Â I ended up loving the way these images turned out…Danielle and Nick, you two can make anything look good! : )
While we were hanging out by the pier a group of students were handing out balloons for a film they were making. They asked if we wanted some and so we gladly accepted. I didn’t realize how significant this was for Danielle and Nick at the time, but love how it brought back memories from high school (read above on how they met!) and how everything started for them. If that’s not a perfect way to end the shoot, I don’t know what is! : ) Congrats on your engagement Danielle and Nick!
