Shanna & Ricky // City Hall Elopement


The sailor and the nurse. I fell absolutely in love with Shanna & Ricky’s love story.

Ricky is a navy photojournalist stationed on the USS George Washington in Japan, "where he is busy saving the world from deadly tsunamis and finding Asian pirates. Then he photographs them.” Originally from LA, West Coast met East Coast, in the form of Miss Shanna from Connecticut.

Shanna is a nursing student in Boston studying to be a nurse/midwife, and working on a side project with a professor on an app that will assist nurses in emergency rooms help victims of sexual assault. She loves helping others, baking, learning... what a girl.

Can someone say power couple???

These two are so crazy in love, it’s unbelievable. They are SUCH sweethearts. It was such an honor to photograph their special day, and after repeating their vows this summer twice more in the backyards of their bi-coastal families, they’ll be starting their life together in Washington, DC.

Married on the first day of Spring (which, for Boston of course, never feels too springy), these two were such a joy to photograph. And their friends and family were so much fun to work with!

Wishing Shanna & Ricky all the love and happiness in the world through their new journey together as husband and wife! <3
