The first time we met Nichole and Joe together, we sat down across the table and were immediately drawn in by their smiles. Their big, beautiful smiles. Warm. Welcoming. Just plain old happiness. The proposal was still fresh, and with it came the giggling, the nose-crinkling, and the looks at each other that say, Okay, you tell this part! that saturate a couple in the weeks and months following their engagement. As Nichole and Joe retold their love story and explained how he popped the question, there wasn’t a doubt in our mind that there was a connection between them — a powerful one — and between us and them, too. Within minutes, we knew we liked them. A few hours later, we were still talking, and, by then, we just couldn’t wait to get them in front of our cameras. Because smiles like theirs are infectious. Love like theirs is contagious. And those are exactly the kind of people we want to be
When we saw these two walk up from a distance on the afternoon of their session, our jaws just about dropped off their hinges. Nichole told us she’d found a few special dresses, but when she strode up in her high heels clicking on the pavement, her blonde hair bouncing in the Arizona sun, holding on to Joe’s arm, and smiling that bright smile, you would’ve thought two celebrities had just walked up, because they turned the heads of everyone who walked passed them. But the best part about Nichole and Joe, the part their family and friends know, and now us, too, is that they’re as kind and sweet on the inside as they are beautiful on the outside. We laughed all the way through their session together, and couldn’t believe when it was over, because it felt like we’d just begun. Time flies when you’re… well, you know.
Here’s a little peek at our time together with two people whose happiness jumps right off the screen. Scroll through twice. Then maybe again. Trust us. It’ll brighten your day…
