Francie had me at first e-mail, when she introduced herself and her fiance', Kerby. I don't think I have ever booked a more adorable pair of names. And that is really all couples are, in the beginning, a duo of letters, formed by their mothers, to represent some sort of soul I have to try to capture love between. Well, I have not been inspired to post a blog about a couple in a very long time, until now. This picture perfect pair lived up to every ounce of anticipation their names gave me.
I discount engagement sessions so that people are more inclined to meet with me, work together, laugh and talk and just feel one another out. I want to be a good fit for a couple just as much as I want the business, if not more. I realize that I have an eclectic personality of thug life mom swag that not all people will understand. The only way I know how to shoot is out of love and it's hard for me to do my best when I don't feel like I mesh well with someone, or I feel like they don't trust me and it makes it difficult. I don't like difficult. (Obviously, being that I chose the career that leads me to working the fewest amount of hours in a day) Shooting these two was so above and beyond enjoyable for me, I could have done it every day for a week. Yes, just a week, let's be real.
I am grateful for every single client that I have. I learn a little more about myself with each personality that I come across and that is a powerful part of this business that I am in. Francie and Kerby cast wind into the sails of my purpose, and people like them don't come around often. They resonate love and laughter and are so genuine in every tiny whisper or when laughing out loud. I cannot say enough about how great it has been to get to know them, or how much I am looking forward to their upcoming wedding. I hope that these photos do their love justice and as always, thank you both for trusting me to capture you during this exciting time.
