Meet: Jojo & Todd

It was standing in line. Well that’s her version of the story. She was at a race with her brother, and standing in line he introduced her to his friend Todd. They shook hands, exchanged pleasantries. And when he walked away, she told her brother “Todd is tall”– her code word for being cute & datable. But he was with somebody & she was with somebody, so she just let it go. And it would be a few years later before these new friends realized that what they had found in line that day was love.

It was standing in line. That’s his version of the story too. Only for him, it happened the second he saw her. From a distance. She got out of a car or walked through some door, and the second he saw her…he just knew. So he listened when his friend introduced them. Took her hand, and they exchanged glances. And when he walked away that day, he already knew…this was the kind of girl worth waiting for.

Meet: Jojo & Todd

We got together with these guys to do their engagement shoot in downtown New Haven, where Jojo grew up. And the second she pulled out four different pairs of shoes, including one pair that was actually worn by Amy Adams in the movie Leap Year (!!!), I knew we were going to be instant best friends! Jojo & Todd, we had the best time hanging out with you guys, getting to witness how you love & take care of one another, and- of course-sharing our mutual love of cupcakes. We can’t WAIT to celebrate with you guys in just two weeks….where that waiting in line will all be worth it!!

SO much love,
