Once upon a time (about 12 years ago) in a land far, far away (Orlando), there was a boy named Mike. Mike worked in a magical place full of pirates and princesses, dwarfs and evil witches, chipmunks and lovable mice. In order to keep working at this magical place, he would need to survive an entire summer with 5 crazy roommates.
I was one of those roommates.
That summer started with Mike being escorted to our apartment by a groundskeeper on a scooter…and hilarity ensued. Mike and I have been friends now for over a decade, and I couldn’t be happier that he found Rick. I clicked with Rick the first time I met him, and knew immediately that he was a great match for Mike. Also, he tolerates my chanting of “Rick Rick Rick” like Amy Poehler’s character on SNL every time I see him. Needless to say, I was THRILLED to get the call a few months ago telling me that they got engaged. Their wedding is going to be next year in New Orleans, and I will NOT be shooting it because I plan on having a hurricane in one hand and a po’ boy in the other.
In the meantime though, they needed engagement photos! They live in Florida, but we thought it would be easier to meet up in Europe. More on the trip across the pond in another post, but these photos were taken in Munich, Salzburg, and throughout the Bavarian Alps. I think my intro above was inspired by the fairy tale surroundings!
