It’s always the people who warn us repeatedly how awkward they’re going to be in front of the camera who are always the least awkward people in front of the camera. Elizabeth and Catherine are two pretty amazing people who are not at all awkward in front of the camera even though they insist that they are. They met playing rugby, and who now enjoy T-Rexes (is that the appropriate plural of T-Rex?) and narwhals and brewing their own beer. They listed off different types of beer they enjoy brewing and they all sounded complicated and involved, but also tasty (I don’t know what coffee oatmeal porter is but I like oatmeal). And considering that they’re going a hops plant in their garden, I think it’s safe to say that it’s serious past time. And you know what they say! Those who homebrew together stay together. If that’s not what they say, it really doesn’t matter, because Elizabeth and Catherine are getting married so now I’m making it a legit saying. This land that they’re on in this shoot has been in Elizabeth’s family since the 40s, and is full of gorgeous fields and also probably snakes but we didn’t see any of those (yay!). Elizabeth and Catherine are fantastic and hilarious people, and we’re super excited to have them as our wedding clients in December!
This is the year of really, really talented people inquiring for us to do their photo sessions and us being really nervous and scared and feeling generally unprepared and not talented enough for their talent. It’s been kinda like this. So Kayla Coleman, our internet photographer friend who produces seriously amazing photographs in really fabulous places, contacted us to do an anniversary session with herself and her husband Pat and we accepted after exactly three panic attacks. My thoughts were: her photography work makes me nervous and feeling terribly inadequate, but she’s gorgeous, so what the heck, let’s do it.
And the good news is that we survived the session and it went GREAT and we finally got to meet our dear internet friend in person (which is very important and should be done more often). We also got to meet her awesome husband Pat who’s had his picture taken many times and was one of the most cooperative (and pose-savvy) gentleman we’ve had the pleasure of working with. Kayla is even more gorgeous in person and we’re all working on getting her accept that compliment, but in the meantime you’ll have to settle for looking at their anniversary portraits below. :) CONGRATULATIONS, FRIENDS! We are absolutely honored to have been your photographers this year!
