Happy Monday friends!! We get to kick off this exciting week on the blog in the most beautiful of ways…and that is with the Nantucket J&M Anniversaries Session of Kristy & Jeremy!
We first met Kristy because she is a fellow speaker in the wedding conference world, and we hung out first at a speaker dinner in Vegas and then United in Arizona last Fall. And we LOVE her! Kristy is the creator of the Start planner, which has taken off to be HUGE (ummm…because they are awesome!) and is just a brilliant business woman and an amazing person! Well she sent us an email a few months back because she & her husband Jeremy are about to celebrate 10 years of marriage and wanted to see if we could set up an anniversary session “somewhere on a boat.” Then it got even better because the exact dates they were looking for were also the exact dates we were already going to be in Nantucket…so the whole thing was really PERFECT from the start! We hung out with these guys (and also our friends The Youngrens) all around the Brant Point Lighthouse and then we took a sunset sail on The Endeavor (with Captain Jim!) followed by an amazing dinner & drinks at the Brotherhood of Thieves. Pretty much the perfect Nantucket day!
I have to tell you that I have really started to develop a deep heart for photographing marriage. There is just something so powerful and beautiful about what happens to a couple and the depth of the connection they have when they stand beside each other through the test of time. Over these couple of hours we got to hear the incredible story these two share, full of health scares and recovery and what it really means to stand beside each other in sickness and in health. What it is to start a family and build businesses and homes and dreams. Together. And there is just something about it that wrecks me in the best possible way. The way that time and love and hard moments and happy moments change and mold us into the people that we’re becoming. It’s like we start off on Day 1 trying to figure out the steps to a brand new dance, that ten years in we could do with our eyes closed. There is a comfort there. A best friendship. And I don’t think even these two realize what an inspiration it is to watch their love. Here are just a FEW of our favorites of our time together!
Kristy & Jeremy, we LOVE you guys! We can’t wait to see you again soon! (hopefully in Nantucket! :)
