one of the funny things about my job as a photographer is that ‘blind-date’ feel of meeting clients for the very first time. taylor’s mom, (a sweet blog reader) had emailed me back in the winter asking if i would shoot her daughter’s engagement session. however i had no contact or connections with either of them. they lived in a different state, i had no facebook picture to go off of or anything. then came the epic session reschedule of the year. i think we had to reschedule their session 4 times due to weather. one weekend i actually lost two engagement sessions due to rain, taylor & thomas were one of those.
when we finally met up & they jumped out of the car i was blown away by what a beautiful couple they were. one of the things i really hope my clients feel is super comfortable just being themselves. obviously having a stranger photograph you in sometimes an intimate setting can make anyone nervous. i was so tickled because i really felt both of them felt at ease & seemed to truly enjoy our time together. engagement sessions are a fun time to really capture the essence of who you are as a couple.
thankfully the final date we scheduled was an absolutely picture perfect evening!
maybe my favorite time of the evening ….
taylor’s family business is Coton Colors. i think if i have the story correct, maybe her aunt & mom are cofounders? i’ve been a big fan of coton colors for years & we have collected their ornaments for quite some time.
imagine my total surprise & delight to find this adorable package in the mail saturday….
with everyone’s name , even brinkley!!! thank you marcie, you have NO idea how tickled i am to have this special ornament!
thank you for being such a sweet new friend. and for the privilege of photographing one of your stunning daughters!
taylor & thomas i wish you all the best & look forward to seeing what i’m certain will be a stunning wedding followed by a reception on a plantation in florida!! just the thought of it all makes me smile!
