Laura and Maxwell are my sweet couple who were supposed to get married today at The Island.

Lately I have been feeling so helpless in helping my sweet couples.

I know there isn’t anything I can do other than try to bring some smiles to them and little glimmers of happiness.


Laura and I always love to exchange good memes.

She is the sweetest thing and she is already such a good friend.


I knew from the moment I first chatted with her during her video wedding consultation that we were going to get along just great.


This morning I texted her and she sent me a message that made my heart hurt.

She said “it’s such a beautiful morning and then I remembered what day it was supposed to be.”

Ugh I just wanted to cry.

I thought to myself how can I make this day better for them? (All things considered.)

I came up with a silly idea.


A video chat portrait session.

You read that right.

A video chat portrait session.


I posed them and told them little prompts and games to do.

We were all laughing.

I have not ever felt more silly in my life.


Laura and I then chatted another hour about everything.

I can’t tell you how much I just adore my clients.


This is a hard situation, but we are all trying to make the best out of it.

I know that this isn’t the portraits they expected from this day, but I’m hoping they will bring a little bit of joy- and also make it so when we are celebrating their wedding in person together, it is all that much sweeter.


Laura sent me a message that reminded me why I do what I do.

Laura sent me this picture with this message:


This bottom picture was taken in 2015 max put his phone in the sand and recorded us walking .
He picked me up and swung me around.
It occurred to me this morning you captured almost the same thing yesterday.
That picture flooded me with all we have withstood.
I’m still emotional because you taking that gave me hope.
I ugly cried when I read this message.



Laura and Maxwell, I am so excited to hug you and celebrate your big day when we can!

Thank you for that little reminder of why I chose this as my lifelong passion and dream.

Love you guys!
