When Brad and I first started dating in 2009 he invited me to go to NYC for a day (flying red-eye to red-eye). His mom works for JetBlue, so he thought it would be fun to take advantage of the flight benefits. I didn't think my Mom would go for it, especially because I'd have to skip a day of school to go. But to my surprise, she said yes! Goes to show how much she adored and trusted Brad from the get go, ha! So we flew out and spent the day in the busy streets of NYC - it was my first time visiting the Big Apple and I felt so adventurous being there with my boyfriend! It was a day I will never forget. Needless to say, New York became a nostalgic place for us from then on.
We decided to take advantage of those same flight benefits, 3 years later- for our Engagement and Bridal photos! My talented sister Heather photographed our engagements and we had a blast working with her. You have to read her behind the scenes post about this trip here. She did such a fantastic job capturing exactly what we wanted, we still have these on our walls to this day! You can see more of her work here - We love you Heath!
And might I add that Heather (my sister with many talents) also designed & painted our wedding announcement! You must see her beautiful blog here.
