We love a good story, and Rich and Althea have a great one! They’ve actually known each other for over 20 years. Rich and Althea met while in high school at Miami Norland Senior High School where, according to Rich, Althea wouldn’t give him the time of day. Althea remembers a slightly different version of the story. However, the fact remains that after graduation, they lost touch for over a decade. It wasn’t until their 15 year reunion that contact was made again. But it was STILL another several years before the romance truly blossomed. Even with Althea teaching school in Tallahassee, and Rich burning the candle at both ends as a homicide detective here in South Florida, the bond they share has only grown stronger. For their engagement shoot, we decided that it would only be fitting to start where it all began, Norland High- home of the Vikings. But from there, we took things from geek to chic as we journeyed through Miami on our way to the Epic Hotel (which just happens to be the site of the reunion that brought them back together. Once there, we took a break for a fantastic dinner at Area 31. The view was incredible, but the fun we had with Rich and Althea was absolutely the best part of the day. The chemistry these two share is evident in every photo we took, and we simply can’t wait to do it all again on their wedding day.
