What’s at the top of your Christmas list this year? This engagement by Photography by Brea has me adding a new item to my list… a private island. This couple chose to have their engagement session captured on a friend’s island – equipped with its very own lighthouse. However, as dreamy as an island may be, the most beautiful thing about this session is friendship.
This friend, Heather, is very special to Lauren and Joe, as she was Lauren’s childhood best friend. Lauren stood by Heather during a tough battle with cancer. Heartbreakingly, Heather passed away but the couple chose to honor her memory by having their photographs captured on the island. In a way Lauren was able to share her big moment with her best friend. Brea shared that, “Being there and seeing the amazing place that Lauren and Heather spent so much time throughout their childhood, and being able to honor Heather’s memory was truly a beautiful thing. The “Little Island”, situated in the Magothy River, was the perfect backdrop to showcase Lauren and Joe’s love. They’re such a special couple and I loved being able to spend my morning with them and get to know them better.”
