I'm always amazed at how the universe brings people together, and I don't think I've ever believed in fate so much until I began photography and started learning people's stories and their journeys that brought them to where they are now. Maria & Nate met all the way in Germany, and have traveled the world together (and separately!)- seeing and doing so much, each in different careers. So yeah I felt pretty special that I got to spend the evening at West Point, hanging out with these two successful, well-traveled, (yet so down to earth & real!) people. Their energy was the perfect mix of playful/teasing and calm/passionate, and the session flowed so easily.
Oh, and I think Nate only cringed a tiny bit when I blared some Cardi B. at reverent Trophy Point, so he's cool in my book ;)
