Airports. Escalators and moving walkways. Ticketing lines and baggage claim. Security screens and flight delays. People going to the people they love, and leaving the people they love behind. That’s Eddie and Lindsey’s story. Three years ago, they said a tearful goodbye amidst the blur of thousands of people hustling past them when he left for medical school on the other side of the country. She didn’t know when she’d get to see him again…

Fast forward three years to the same airport, where they’d cried in each other’s arms. Where they’d watched forever be put on hold. Lindsey had planned fora girlfriend to come and visit her. It’d been on the books for months and her friend asked Lindsey to pick her up at the gate to help carry a large package through the airport. Curbside pickup wouldn’t do. After three years of airport hellos and goodbyes, Lindsey was used to parking her car and waiting just outside airport security. She and Eddie always walked each other as far as TSA would let them go, and they always greeted each other inside with a smile and a hug just outside the metal detectors upon arrival. It was their way of squeezing every last second out of their time together. So, there she was. Waiting for her friend. For a girls weekend. To help carry a package.

Or so she thought…

Standing there, she looked everywhere for her friend, but she couldn’t spot her in the crowd. She looked and looked, but her girlfriend wasn’t there. But, then, out of nowhere, her best friend was. Shock ran through her body. She couldn’t believe it was him. Through the crowd, walking right toward her, was Eddie. She couldn’t believe it. Through a tearful hug and kiss, she tried to grapple with the reality of what was happening. That he’d colluded with her friend — for months. That he’d had this planned from the start. A clandestine trip to see her. To surprise her. First with him. Then with his whole heart. Forever. And, just like he’d planned, he got down on one knee, right there in the middle of the airport, in the place where they’d said their first tearful goodbye three years before, and, just like that, the location of so much pain and sadness became the starting point in the story of the future.

Eddie and Lindsey, from the moment we met you, we knew you were the perfect fit for us. From meeting in the same high school to a secret flight home to propose, your story and ours have so much in common, and we just feel so connected to you. Thank you for welcoming us into your life and giving us the chance to photograph the beginning of your exciting new journey together. From a few fellow Huskies to a few of our favorite new ones, we hope you love these photos as much we do, because this session has us so excited for next spring. Here’s a little sneak peek of our time together…
