I am so excited to share this post as my first official session on the new blog/website! It’s something different for me, but I love how it all turned out. First, a little backstory. About 2 months ago, I was contacted by the sweetest girl about shooting an engagement session for her and her fiance and their two dogs. We met one Friday at Panera to plan and discuss their session. They had just gotten engaged at Christmas, but had been together for about 8 years. I asked about wedding plans, and they really hadn’t made any at that point. I suggested to them that they could use the pictures for a save the date card when the time came. But I made sure they knew that I was NOT a wedding photographer. I would be happy to refer them to some amazing wedding photographers in town. 🙂 They really wanted to do their session at The Poor Porker, which is an incredibly cool new venue in town. Plans were set for the next month.
So, a week later Emilee called me to say they were thinking about just getting married at their “engagement” session, and would I mind still being there to shoot it. I hesitated a little bit, but the more she talked about their plans and ideas, the more excited I got about it all. And they still wanted to get married at the Poor Porker, which was just so awesome to me. So I said yes! And that is how I became a wedding photographer for a night. 🙂
It was a very laid back night with just their moms and dogs in attendance. We did some portraits and detail shots all around The Poor Porker, and then right at sunset they exchanged vows. Afterwards they fed each other beignets and then went to Harry’s downtown for a dinner celebration. Emilee & Tim – thank you so much for trusting me to capture such a beautiful night of your lives! It was an honor to be there and an honor to photograph your family.
