When friends ask me to photograph them for their engagement session, I get all the feels. I’ve known Neil for going on 10 years now and he is by far one of my most favorite people and so you can imagine I was incredibly excited to meet Felicia after they started dating. When I saw them together, I knew it was the real deal and they would get married one day – and well now they are!
They got engaged at Neil’s favorite beach, Old Orchard Beach in Maine this summer. He took Felicia out for a walk there on the beach and suggested they do some Geocaching. Little did Felicia know Neil had placed a rock in a certain spot on the beach hours before. They are searching for this fake Geocache together when Felicia finds the engraved rock Neil had placed in the sand that said, “Your future lies below”. When Felicia picked it up, Neil quickly placed the engagement ring box in the sand for her to find. And surprise! They were engaged! Isn’t that the sweetest Geocaching story ever?
Neil is originally from Connecticut so they will be having a gorgeous New England fall wedding and I am soo looking forward to celebrating them! Currently they live in the Bay Area, so this is their west coast love story. Of course we made quite the adventure out of it. Starting with a walk through Muir Woods National Monument, followed by chasing the sunset in Sausalito, we got stuck in some moody fog at Point Bonita Lighthouse and at Crissy Field we brought out their gorgeous pup Atticus. It was the cherry on top of the session! Isn’t Atticus the cutest?
Congratulations on your engagement Felicia + Neil!
