Elyssa and Matt Engaged!

It is not uncommon for clients to book me through email correspondence because they were referred to me by a friend. Sometimes I don’t even get to meet my clients until their engagement session. Elyssa and Matt were no exception. Unfortunately, I had been pronouncing Elyssa’s name wrong in my head for months. When she introduced herself to me and said her name, all I could think was how badly I was going butcher her name during our session. And what’s crazy is it’s not even hard to say! haha! Every time I would give Elyssa direction, I would have to pronounce her name so slowly . . . uhhh-leeee-saaaa. I promise I’m not mentally challenged. Honestly, it took me FOREVER to pronounce boudoir right mainly because I had been pronouncing it wrong for so long. Given that I shoot boudoir sessions, it was imperative that I actually pronounce boudoir correctly.

Since Elyssa and Matt’s shoot, I have woken up every morning saying, “Elyssa and Matt are ADORABLE!” I find it helps to use the word in a sentence and imagine that most will agree with my declaration.

For Elyssa and Matt’s e-session, we met at Matt’s parents’ lake house. AND IT WAS GORGEOUS! I could vacation there! We started out their session inside and I am in LOVE with the reading room pictures. Elyssa and Matt are both doctors and I thought it was fitting since I assume they have to read a lot. Later, we headed outside for a blueberry picnic, a walk through the garden, and spent some time on the dock. I am totally obsessed with vegetable gardens and anything that grows outside that is edible. It’s very Martha Stewart and right up my alley. Here are a few of my favorite images from our time together:
