Brooke and Nic

There are lots of reasons that I love my job- but the most important reasons aren't what you may think

It was this past Saturday that I sat with Brooke and her brood, watching hair being curled, makeup being applied, drinking coffee, listening to was as simple as a moment when Brooke touched my arm and said, "I am really happy that you could come and capture this day for us"
and you know, it was no cliché or small talk- she actually meant it- and that made my day worth while!

 One word for Brooke- GORGEOUS!!

I usually tell some kind of tale about the flowers or the locations but instead I'm going to take the this time to tell you how Brooke and Nic met- because it's one of those stories that you don't hear everyday!!
There was a time when Brooke and Nic both rode the same transit bus route everyday.  Everyday they would ride this bus- neither of them said a word to each other.  Brooke thought Nic was pretty hot....and I imagine he as well (have you seen Brooke). But alas, nothing-   A glance here and there- some eye contact- a smile maybe.
So one day Brooke had a plan.  She wrote Nic a note.  She told him that she had no idea if he had a significant other- but if he didn't, here was her number- and he could call.  And she handed it to him as she got off at her stop.
And he called her THAT NIGHT (of course he did!!) and the rest is history.
And I have had the pleasure (the honor) of photographing all sorts of pivotal moments in their life.  It's kind of like they are MY Brooke and Nic :)
I have posted a very small peak of their day here

These pictures are absolutely breath taking, being Nic's mother you have truly captured the beauty of them. Looking at the pictures bought me back to the feeling I had watching my son and his wife on the day of their wedding. "GREAT JOB"

Carrie, you are amazing. The few pictures I have seen are just beautiful, breathtaking and gorgeous! You are fabulous at your job and I know why Brooke and Nic love you so much. You were a pleasure to have around that day and you captured many beautiful memories for them to look back on over the years. They are timeless and very special.
