Jamie’s cousin Megan and her fiance Cliff whose wedding we will be shooting next year were among those in attendance; so shooting their engagement session during our stay worked out perfectly!

Twin Switch

Our favorite Twin Switcheroo Story

As identical twins we have always played little tricks on people; we made our first official all-day classroom switch in the 6th grade. From there we were unstoppable, switching classes successfully, and yes, we admit unsuccessfully—once! One of our favorite switcheroos (or at least that we’re willing to share) took place when we were 19 years-old. Danielle double booked herself—tough since it’s hard to be in two places at the same time…. but not for twins! Deanne to the rescue!! She couldn’t get off work so she needed me to step into her shoes as a server at a restaurant.
