There were thunderstorms, sweltering heat waves, perfect summer mountain breezes, and blizzards. I photographed lovely people in snowy mountain towns, Caribbean beaches, Kentucky horse farms, rutted dirt roads in the African countryside, Rustbelt cities, National forests, great historic mansions, the shores of the Great Lakes, art galleries and art museums, the Big Apple, the plains of the great Masai Mara, cowboy towns and Midwestern dairy farms.
Mindy and Cameron are crazy talented photographers themselves, and I’m guessing that had something to do with the fact that they were able to appreciate the magical secret garden quality of the abandoned greenhouse enough to brave the ticks and the broken glass and the poison ivy.
Pierce did things the old fashioned way : he asked Claudia’s family for her hand in marriage and planned a proposal that she knew nothing about. They hadn’t gone ring shopping, she wasn’t expecting a proposal at every turn (or any turn, for that matter). Add to that the fact that he pulled the whole thing off on a secluded beach in the Caribbean. It was stunningly beautiful, and Claudia was completely swept away.
