I met Lexi at a workshop I went to in July, 2009 and we hit it off right away. She invited me to come to Boston to catch up and also to shoot one of her December weddings. Of course I jumped at the chance and we had an absolute blast. Lexi picked me up from the airport and we made the hour long journey to her place chatting and laughing the entire way. In all fairness we didn’t know each other all that well since we had only spent 3 days together a few months prior but our instincts about each other were so right!! It was like catching up with an old friend with all the chatter but the same comfortable silences you can have with someone you’ve known forever.
When we arrived at their house Lexi’s hubby Simon and their gorgeous puppy Guinness greeted us at the door. I was promptly served a tall glass of Blueberry Beer! I have never seen or heard of Blueberry Beer before and it was…simply put…just YUM! We hung out late into the night chin wagging about love, life and everything else in between. I’m not sure what I enjoyed the most? Staying up half the night or getting to sleep in in the morning! Then, just when things couldn’t get any better, I wake up to home made blueberry muffins….wowzers they were so amazing I ate 3 of them.
On Sunday we awoke to the first real snowfall that Lexi and Simon had seen for the year and it was absolutely stunning. It was mild and sunny and the perfect white snow coated their entire yard. Lexi asked if I would mind taking a few photos of them because they hadn’t had any done since their own wedding. Mostly I would say that photographing other photographers is a fairly nerve racking experience for me but Lexi and Simon were so easy. They are so in love I could feel it through the lens. Thanks to both of you for being so gosh darn amazing and I sincerely hope you can make it up here this summer for a visit. xoxo miss you.
Here’s a photo Simon grabbed of Lexi and I.
