When our friend Melissa Jill told us that she wanted to photograph us (on film!) while we were in Nantucket, I have to admit that I was an even mix of emotions ranging between being SO incredibly excited & honored that she was willing to give us such a GIFT knowing how incredible they would be…..and being a total girl thinking about how I wished that I was 10 lbs lighter and my hair wasn’t still doing that awkward stage/identity crisis thing that it always does right after I get it cut and how I didn’t have a THING to wear. But all of that faded away as soon as Melissa started shooting. I just got to hold on to this boy I fell in love with 11 years ago…this boy I fall in love with even more with each passing day.
On her blog post, MJ wrote the following: “The wind about blew us off the beach that day, and despite the golden sun shining generously on us, it was COLD. But these two walk around in their own little stratosphere, orbiting one another. And when they’re together, nothing else matters.” Melissa, thank you SO MUCH for capturing us for exactly who we are in both your words and your photos. Thank you will never be enough!!
