Alternative, confident, and unique are all words I would use to describe this sweet relationship. First of all, Alex has the coolest job ever. He’s getting his Ph.D in volcanism [not to be confused with a Vulcanism or anything else Star Trek related]. AKA he studies volcanos. After learning that and only spending five minutes with them, I quickly realized that these two were some seriously fun, wildly in love, quirky kids.
I relished every part of this stroll through downtown Chapel Hill as Grace and Alex recalled where they met, where they went on a first date, and their frequented joints where they fell in love. As we moved from spot to spot, they filled me with stories and memories. We sipped iced coffee and they shared with me their really cool wedding tattoo idea (which you will just have to wait and find out about in September!). And obviously, we did a LOT of laughing. It couldn’t have felt less like a shoot and more like a date (with me as their third wheel). As I gear up for their wedding in early September, I’m revisiting this great session. I cannot wait, guys!
