When I think of people that embody kindness and gratitude, I think of Ellie and Scott. I met these two out at The Pinehurst Arboretum last March for their engagement session, where they showed up in matching sneakers and matching smiles. Ellie and Scott led me around the Arboretum to their favorite spots, describing how it served as a sanctuary for them at the beginning of the pandemic. Throughout their session, Scott and Ellie shared about their experiences working in creative marketing, and spoke endlessly about how much they appreciated my time and how excited they were to have me at their wedding. These two truly made me feel so loved during this session, and it made capturing their love all the easier. These two are big on hugs, silly moments, and chatting all things Marvel. To Scott and Ellie, I hope these moments still make you smile as much as they make me.
