Elizabeth ♥ Tom

With the grace and style of classic movie stars, Elizabeth and Tom brought a subtle elegance and romance to their engagement session. They chose to do their shoot where he first saw Elizabeth walk into the room. Romantic, isn’t it? Her incredible pink dress, his sharp looking suit, there’s just so much to love about this!

All you need is…

LOVE.

Call me a hopeless romantic, but I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day. I love the color red and I love all things heart-shaped. Even back when I was in high school I use to bake heart shaped sugar cookies and hand them out to my teachers and classmates. Nerdy, I know. I know not everyone may share my same enthusiasm, but that’s because I think most of us have forgotten the true spirit of the occasion. We’re all so overly consumed with the idea of having to have that special someone, and for those of us who already do we stress out over buying the perfect gift for them, that we forget that it’s just about telling those in our lives how much we love them.  That’s right, it’s about the special people already in our lives, a parent, a sibling, a loyal dog (or cat), your mailman or the nice person you buy coffee from each morning who always remembers that you like your cup with one sugar, not two.  Valentine’s Day isn’t about how many roses you get or what fancy, overpriced restaurant you can make a reservation to. It’s about telling the people you love, simply that, you just love them. Let’s be honest, as much as we want to say we should do that all year long, we don’t. So go out there, hand out heart shaped sugar cookies, give your neighbor a hug. Make this world a more lovable place!

Oh, and if I haven’t told you already. I love you. Yes, YOU. My faithful blog readers who have stuck by me all these years, even when I go missing for months on end, always offering me words of encouragement and support, always using lots of exclamation marks when referring to my work, and never judging me for my grammatical errors. Yup. I love you guys <3
