I met Austin and Haley last year at my friends Mackenzie and Kyle's Wedding in Austin TX. We sat down next to each other at the reception and bonded over skateboarding, living in California, and wedding cakes. They have been together for almost 8 years and are still so obsessed with each other that at points it brings tears to my eyes. Seriously, you should find their wedding video on the internet.. it'll bring actual tears to your eyeballs.
Last year Jessica reached out to me in one of the best ways you could reach out to a photographer. Telling me that she loved my work and wanted to immediately book me for her wedding. As a wedding photographer and small business owner I put so much integrity and time into making my work and my business stand out, so when I get people that truly value me and aren't just shopping for the best deal, I just want to virtually give them the biggest hug and tell them thank you for making me feel like all my hard work is paying off.
Tyler and Skyler.... Doesn't that just sound so perfect?! That sounds like the names of two best buds. It's even more perfect that these two lovers are actually best friends and engaged. The chemistry these two people have together is so intoxicating and infectious. Even I was sitting there thinking, " OMG I just want to go home and hug my person!"
Two weeks ago I spent the weekend in Nashville, TN. It's one of my favorite cities in the US. So when newly engaged Haley and Sam asked about taking their engagements around the city I didn't hesitate. They're wedding is in October 2018, and I seriously can't wait for the party that's going to be. They are both such spunky and fun humans, spending time with them was a serious treat. We started our session on a Saturday at 6:30 am, in the downtown area. There was a Christmas marathon starting around that time, so it was entertaining to see runners dressed up as reindeer and Santa Clauses as we were snapping pics around the city.
