Meet: Elisabeth & William

Happy Tuesday friends!

And ooohhh do we have something extra special for you today! From the moment we started this shoot, I have been counting the minutes until I could share it and now that day is finally here! We met up with Elisabeth & Will to do their engagement shoot around Yale, where Elisabeth is a resident and on the campus where these guys first met (at a grad student bar where neither of them were actually grad students!). And I have to imagine that when the two of them met, the whole world lit up if even for an instant like some silver screen moment. An Audrey Hepburn meeting a Gregory Peck.

From their flawless, iconic style to a shared love of books (William is a librarian and former rare books dealer), these two met their perfect backdrop in the Beineke Library’s rare book collection and the nearby columns that felt like a Roman Holiday. And we were just the ones lucky enough to be there to push the button. Elisabeth & William, we had the BEST time hanging out with you and getting to know you! And it has me all the more excited for November. Because if this is what you came up with for the engagement shoot, I know the wedding is going to blow us away!

So much love,
