There is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one’s self, the very meaning of one’s soul. ~Edith Wharton
I had the privileged of photographing Stephanie & Drew’s engagement session this past weekend while they were home on a short break from Indiana. Both born and raised in Wilbraham, MA they went to Minnechaug Regional High School together as well as The University of Mass in Amherst. I asked them how long they had been dating and was so nicely surprised to be told, ” since seventh grade”. What a marvelous friendship they have woven for themselves which is why I felt the need to have a quote to start this blog. It surely describes the relationship they share as a couple. Nothing mushy or overbearing but a profound sense of friendship and connection. The wedding is sure to be a truly wonderful unity of friendship and love.
