Their relationship is quiet but insistent, punctuated by laughter. It’s built on a deep caring for one another. Simple tasks and quiet discoveries. Long conversations and simply watching television together. It’s not flashy. It’s not a show put on for others. It’s love. Pure, simple, beautiful. No bells and whistles needed.
I’ve known Margaret since we were in junior high at summer camp. She might not know this, but I’ve always admired her from afar. She’s a brilliant person with the strongest of convictions, and passion for working toward a better world. And even though I’ve only known Eric briefly, I can just feel the beauty in their lasting connection. Margaret and Eric have a very sweet story of courtship and an engagement involving ring pops, but I will save the full story for their wedding.
For now, their engagement session: we headed to the Berkeley Marina on a very sunny day, right after daylight savings kicked in.
This squirrel was really funny running around with its leafy greens. I just had to let it into the blog post somehow.
Loved Margaret’s dress and the colors in this. No enhancements needed- basically straight out of camera.
I’m already looking forward to their September wedding! And excitedly keeping up with the planning details along the way.
