I met up with this INCREDIBLE couple (incredible doesn’t quite do them justice) on Wednesday at their wedding venue. Nate and Mary are getting married 1 WEEK from tomorrow! We didn’t get a chance to do an engagement session with them, so Emily (Jade) convinced them to do some quick photos when we did their final meeting. I wasn’t planning on doing a blog post with these images when I took them. It just so happens that I liked them TOO MUCH to keep them to ourselves. :)
I am adding this to our Happy Bride collection because I also wanted to post these for all the couples out there that ‘think’ they are awkward in front of the camera. That’s how Nate and Mary thought they were going to be. :) Truth be told, most couples feel this way! If you think you are ‘awkward’ in front of the camera, you are in good company! :) That’s what you have Emily and I for. Helping you feel comfortable in front of the camera is our #1 job because that is the key to getting the photos that REALLY say who you are, what your relationship is all about, and getting those moments that capture your love for each other. I spent maybe 15 minutes taking these and look how AMAZING Nate and Mary look! :) This has some to do with my ability to capture a good image or two, but more to do with our bride’s ability to pick the right photographer for what she wants. The Happy Bride picks a photographer that she feels HAPPY around! Someone that makes her smile and feel comfortable. I cannot stress how important this is. If you want to make sure you won’t have any worries about your wedding as well as your photos afterwards, pick a photographer that you feel completely comfortable being around!
Nate and Mary, I am so excited to capture your big day in 8 days! -A
