Dave and Julie's love story started in college and quickly developed over classes together, and even a Shakespeare play. Julie and Dave both have a love for good literature and are very comfortable referring to themselves as "nerds".
I had a lot of fun with these two "nerds" as we shot on a beautiful fall morning on Mackworth Island. Julie grew up in Maine and wanted to capture the Maine fall foliage during their engagement shoot.
Dave proposed to Julie in their backyard garden one evening. It was Julie's birthday so all of her closest friends were inside. Dave switched on the garden light to show Julie a waiting "birthday gift". Dave being the nostalgic and romantic guy that he is, had put together a book of poems for each year they had been together, eight in total. Dave glues the final pages together to reveal an engagement ring. As Dave knelt down on one knee, he asked Julie to marry him.
Julie and Dave currently live in Boston. Having the love she has for Maine, she continues to spend her summers on Bustins Island with her family. From the beginning, Dave has joined in the Maine adventures, and thought it would be a perfect wedding location. Dave and Julie are tying the knot this June in Freeport, at the Harraseeket Inn. I look forward to capturing this unique couple as they say "I do."
