Right in Front of Your Eyes

Amberli and Michael have known each other literally their entire lives. In fact, their mothers have been best friends since school and remain so today. So it's exciting for me to be able to photograph such a wonderful relationship. Amberli and Michael are now engaged and plan to marry in May of 2010.

You know, a lot of married couples say, "I married my best friend." But very rarely do they start out as best friends. Our love for each other is what turns us into best friends and the desire to be the best that we can be for our spouses.

Amberli and Michael were such a blessing to spend time with this past weekend. They are so comfortable with each other and very funny. She even let me stick her beauitful engagement ring in the sand while she walked away. They were cracking jokes and didn't complain once about the 30mph wind gusts or all the sand that we seemed to be eating. Despite the wind we had a great time on the beach and were able to get some great photos; how can you not have fun on the beach?
