Nicole and Andrew will be getting married this September and I couldn't be more excited to spend the day with them and photograph the day. We go way back though as they've been guests at a number of weddings I have photographed in the past, and Andrew was even a groomsman.
I really got to know them well once we officially met up to discuss their wedding. You may recognize Nicole from a video piece she put together about my wife when she was in the hospital. Nicole helped us spread the word and awareness of acute liver failure. Nicole is a reporter and covers traffic in the morning on WFSB Channel 3 News in Connecticut.
Andrew is a videographer. It's always fun to talk nerdy technical stuff about cameras and other gear with Andrew, you can check out some of his work on his Vimeo page. Oh, and did I also mention they're METS fans?
For their engagement session, myself and my wife made a day trip to Springfield, MA to photograph Nicole and Andrew. We had a few spots, including City Hall, the center of town where there was great painted artwork of various musicians and celebrities, Theodore's Blues, Booze, & BBQ, where they had their first date. Unfortunately we were not able to enjoy their BBQ because we went in there before they opened to take photos, so we'll have to go back and check it out another time as the food had been highly recommended.
They're also very big music fans, especially when it comes to the Beatles. So when we found these paintings on the walls of Springfield, we had to take full advantage.
It's always fun getting to spend time with Nicole and Andrew. We closed the day by getting a bite at Luxe Burger. Which I highly recommend if you're in the Springfield area.
Enjoy the photos, and seriously, how adorable and fun are these two?
