One of my brides who was already booked for 2017 mentioned that her friend (who will be a bridesmaid in her wedding) was also looking for a wedding photographer and she wanted to share my information with her. After finding out who the bride-to-be was, something clicked and I recognized her. We had all attended the same undergraduate college, Alice Lloyd College, and I had taken photos of the admissions work study at one time, and had already photographed both brides!
Natalie and I had a consultation over coffee, and after seeing how absolutely gorgeous she was again, and after seeing her venue, I just knew I had to shoot this wedding. I'm very happy to announce I was chosen as her wedding photographer!
She asked if I would be able to take some photos at the groom-to-be's family lakehouse. When I think lakehouse, I'm thinking more along the lines of a small, quaint cabin, but this place was unreal. The decor of this place was insanely amazing, the house was so spacious, and was a photographer's dream!--EXACTLY the kind of house I've always wanted to shoot this type of session in.
I thought I was in complete location-heaven already until they walked me down to this huge wooden dock where I had so many creative thoughts rush through my head at once, and I went crazy, snapping away.
One things that I'm much too excited about is how he makes her laugh. I know it will make for amazing wedding photos! She is so happy-go-lucky and he continually makes her smile. Real emotions make for the best pictures, and when he so obviously makes her happy, half my work is already done for me! I can't wait to see these two say "I do!"
