It's a very special day when you see how old your "little" brother is- he's done grow'd up and gettin' married! It has been such a joy to see these two come together. Their romance was kindled in the quiet town of Moscow, Idaho while Sam was rooming with Gracie's family, attending school. Little did they know that a seeming "insignificant" connection would result in such a lifetime of happiness. Sam is the philosophical type- loves reading and widdling away days at a time studying a new favorite author. Gracie shares his avid love of learning but keeps him grounded with her joyful love of life and home. They are truly best of friends, bringing out the best in the other.
For their engagement photos we headed out to Sauvie island- it's quiet, away from the hubbub and crowds of the city. (Thanks to Jamie Rae Photo for showing me this spot!) Super chill shoot- they are so laid back!
