Sam & Eric

Sam and Eric have been close friends of mine since freshman year of college. We were in the same friend group (called Grape Squad) and constantly hung out (when we weren’t rowing). Our entire group was on the college rowing team and we bonded during regattas and practices. Sam and I became quick friends and soon found out that our dads were best friends prior to us meeting in college. So we became known as “Dads Bffs Daughter.” 

Our friend group grew once the rowing team had to participate in community service projects. After one large event, the Grape Squad was officially formed during an evening in Wiley Dining Court. This is when I met Eric and also my future boyfriend. Sam and Eric hit it off immediately and made it official starting in November 2016. I have seen their love grow over the past two years for each other and know that they are meant for one another. No matter what life hits them with, they are always with one another and there for each other. I have done sessions with them in the past (and you should see the progression of my photography) and this one was definitely my favorite. You can see the love between the two of them and how much the other person means to them. They were troopers in the cold weather and I forgot my thin mints as a gift to them (I’ve got a box in my apartment so come and get them haha). Sam and Eric, you two are an amazing pair together and make amazing friends to everyone you meet. I hope that we can always laugh about rowing and continue to become even better friends after college. Our squad wouldn’t know what to do without you. Enjoy your beautiful gallery!
