What an adorable couple! Bobbi contacted me about doing their photos and told me her future sister in law, Michelle, had referred them. Turns out I went to school with her sister in law and even photographed her wedding a few years ago (no I don’t do weddings…yet. This was long before I ever considered having a business and would just help out friends and family) I have to admit though that I didn't realize Michelle even had a brother… SORRY Matthew I’m a little too *cough* old to have met you in school.
From the get go I explained that this is to be fun and natural with a few posed shots, but mainly wanted it to look like I wasn't even there. I told Matthew to whisper sweet nothings, or funny stories about farts, as long as they were smiling and laughing. He was a pro and did just that. Sometimes it can be super hard to keep kissing and kissing and kissing… in front of someone you don’t know well, but they did great!! Right at the end of the session we ran into a little kitty that decided he wanted to be friends. Bobbi who adores kitties was right at home with the little guy but Matthew and I felt differently. Don’t get me wrong folks I don’t wish harm on animals but I am allergic to anything with fur and this little guy thought he should be in the remaining pictures. I had to pose Matthew and Bobbi, then pick up the kitty drop him off half way across the yard, sprint back and try to snap the picture. Thankfully we were pretty much done so the shoot was a success even with the kitty photo bombs. I absolutely adore their session. Congratulations on your engagement you two! May you have many years of wedded bliss <3
