well, i got caught.
i tried to secretively update my website and blog without anyone noticing so that kristin + jesse’s first glimpse at their wedding images were of this blog post, since the new website has some on there. but of course, cute and bubbly kristin emails me yesterday something along the lines of…
“soo…i’m a super stalker and saw our pictures on your website and i’m in love with you.”
and this, kristin… this one sentence is exactly why i wish sometimes i could put you in my pocket and take you home with me. you simply make me laugh and i love you for it. so maybe it wasn’t quite the surprise i had planned, but i definitely won’t complain with that sweet email!
when i walked into the room, kristin just sat and glowed. it was your typical getting ready….tons of girls crammed into the smallest space they can find when there is an entire empty room next to them :) it was a fun group and i knew when i walked in and found them dancing to some 80′s song that this was going to be a very very good day.
big thank you to ben who was my second shooter for the day and of course that fact alone made it that much more fun!
kristin + jesse planned a Day After Session, so that we could have more time to get beautiful portraits, without them having to worry about getting back to their guests or being on a timeline. so a few days later, we reunited and just played in the golden sunlight. as you will see, i am so.glad.we.did.
kristin + jesse:: this last year planning your wedding with you has been so much fun and i’m sad to see it go. however, i know that you two have bright and amazing futures ahead of you in your new home in north carolina. thank you so much for making me feel like a part of the family on your wedding day, truly i was honored to be able to document it. xoxo
