Meaghan & Joseph. Reno Engagements.

Her friends noticed it. Even her family noticed it. They knew when Meaghan was talking on the phone with Joseph because of the way she laughed. Not a forced, fake laugh but a true, genuine oh.my.goodness.i’m.so.happy kind of laugh. And it’s true-when Meaghan & Joseph are together-it’s one of the first things that you do notice-how happy they are with each other & how much they make each other laugh. They met in high school & had lots of band classes together (although it is still uncertain just who is the better clarinet player but that’s besides the point! ) They became friends & then started dating but as high school neared an end for Joseph, they decided to break up because he was off to college & Meaghan was still in high school. They took a break, dated other people but it just wasn’t the same. Meaghan & Joseph’s lives found their way back together & they’ve been together ever since. And they have literally never, ever, ever been happier. They are SUCH a darling couple-they are truly so excited & happy when they are together & I am SO excited to be able to be photographing their wedding this summer!

We shot their photographs at the University of Nevada, Reno (my alma mater!). The light was perfect outside & they even brought along Joseph’s scooter which made for some super fun photos. When Meaghan & Joseph arrived at their engagement shoot, they went on & on about how they are awkward in photographs. THEY WERE WRONG! Look how amazing these two look together…

I had them take the scooter for a spin…so much fun!

One of my favorites!

    I have read through your blog. You two look so happy. And, I have always said “You know who you will spend the rest of your life with when you can talk, and talk, and talk for hours and it seems like minutes. Your pictures are beautiful. You both look so happy. We are happy for you and can’t wait to see you in August. /jc
