Sizzlin’ Sneak Peek

I wrote a whole post about how my sister met my brother-in-law, and then accidentaly deleted it. Suffice to say, my sister has one of those so-perfect-it-makes-you-want-to-puke stories, the kind that’s usually told on a silver screen while millions of women curl up with Ben & Jerry’s. Yep.

There was the initial meeting in Hawaii, the hike by the waterfall, the girlfriend (he was seeing someone, and wasn’t interested in my sister), and the distance of time & hundreds of miles between. And while my sister shed buckets of tears, there was a happy ending. With the typical double take. At Starbucks. And while it took a little bit of time after that, over three and a half years ago, they got married.

They have since crisscrossed the United States, most of the miles in a teeny little Honda Del Sol (may it rest in peace). But one thing they have never done is an engagement or portrait shoot besides on their wedding day, so a couple of weeks ago I took Brittany & Justin out on a rendevouz.

A few days later, Justin told Brittany (as they traveled west from the East Coast to the Pacific Northwest…whew!) that he felt like they were dating. Something like how it felt new & exciting, how the future was unfolding in front of them. And I can’t help but look at these photos and see a couple totally, utterly in love–but not just the early stages of infatuation, but deeper, more contented, a love that’s been tested and fought for, even for only a few short years thus far.

And it’s beautiful to see, even if it was a little awkward photographing my little sister makin’ out. Not gonna lie.

Without further ado: Brit & Justin:

  1. These are so sweet. Dave and I never had engagement photos or anything either. This is maybe something for us to consider doing– well, after baby no. 2!

    Thanks for sharing. Simply marvelous photos.
