Johnna + Brett have one of the sweetest love stories. They met in elementary school, went to prom together but then went separate ways for college, even though they both already knew the other was "the one". They finally reunited for good after finishing college. And even now they live far from each other, often meeting halfway for yummy dinner dates. They are so excited to be looking for a house together in the near future so that they can begin building their home!
In the short time that I have known Johnna, I have honestly been overwhelmed by her kind and thoughtful nature. She has sent the sweetest texts about my photos and how excited she is to work together! I can't even say how appreciative I am of this. I know that other people who know her, would completely agree with me. I know for sure her fiancé Brett does! When I first met Johnna over coffee to discuss their wedding, I loved her sweet and kind disposition. Johnna + Brett both share a passion for teaching and it truly shows in the way they are with each other. You simply can not love teaching and helping others without being a kind, huge-hearted individual. They also attribute this to the way they were raised and to their families, who are a huge part of their relationship.
Brett surprised Johnna one day last summer while they were visiting Block Island with an equally sweet proposal. A photo book made from photos from their years dating, leading up to a "just say yes" page. Brett got down on one knee and asked Johnna to marry him. She was surprised and thrilled and excited and so here we are today!
We had their Harkness Park engagement photos planned for a day when the weather looked iffy. We talked leading up and we were going to make a last minute call because the forecast was all over the place. On Friday afternoon the clouds were threatening but the rain wasn't coming... yet. I loved Johnna's perspective when she called and said "I feel like it's just meant to be! If it rains it could be fun!" So we went out to get some cozy, fun, crazy, rainy day engagement photos! I absolutely love the way they came out, I think they sum up their fun and adventurous personality and awesome love for each other perfectly. I am so happy to know you both and can't wait to see all the great things that are in store for you until your wedding and then after! Thank you again so much for including me!!
