Where oh where to begin with these two.
Clients, friends and people will come into your life needing your expertise for their big day. Not only is it the biggest compliment to me, that out of all the other amazing photographers out there you chose me. But, It’s almost kind of like fate or meant to be if you will. I had no Idea who Kyle and and Amanda were when they contacted me for their engagement session. Up until then about 90% of my clients were people who knew people who knew people that I had photographed. But when I receive this little message from Kyle inquiring about engagement photos and that he had found me just by doing a little online research all the way from Georgia, I knew they were going to be special.
I ABSO-FRICKIN-LUTLY love and adore taking photos of my friends. People who I know or have known for many years. It’s a blast. But when I get a couple who I have never met, don’t know who they are, who they are as a couple, or anything, I almost get even more excited. As a photographer and more specifically as a wedding and couple’s photographer.I feel my sole priority and duty is to visually create a story that shows the love you have for one another in photos. So I get giddy, or maybe it’s just nerves, when I meet new clients to photograph for the first time. I get excited with the fact that I get to learn about them and watch their love for one another unfold, which in my mind is honestly kind of like watching a movie. I get to be the one to depict the beauty that I see in front of me and how their love needs to be shown to the world.
I’m a storyteller, and that pretty effin cool to say.
When they fell in love with their engagement photos and booked me for their wedding I was overjoyed! The incredible experience I had photographing these two for their engagement photos was going to be nothing compared to the wedding day and I was right. Two things I absolutely love about a wedding. An on time schedule and a couple so totally in love. If those two things happen, my day is set out and easy peasy. Well, easy besides the 8 hours of basically doing squats and lunges to get the shots.
The whole day was a sweet, little, fairytale wedding type of day. With the rain in the morning, and the sun breaking through the barn windows while they said their vows. Pizza for dinner and riding out into the sunset in a Rolls Royce. This now newly married and relocated military couple sure had one incredibly special day on April 22. I was just honored I was able to capture it.
