Last February I got an email from one of my favorite grooms. Let me start by saying I had already done engagement photos for this particular couple and at the time we had thrown around a lot of different ideas for locations. Amanda, the bride, really wanted to do photos by a barn but also wanted to capture the fall colors at the Morton Arboretum. Long story short…there was so much fall goodness at the Arboretum that we never made it to the barn. So back to the email. Valentine’s Day was fast approaching and this email pops up:
Dearest bestest wedding photographer,
How are you? We have missed hanging out. I dont get to keep up with you on pintrest and facebook, i feel like i am missing out on everything. THANK GOD FOR THE BLOG.
I have been putting together some gift ideas for amanda for V-day. Tiffany’s aside, i thought of asking you to shoot us in front of a barn or in a field of daffodils sometime in the spring. I know that would be a thoughtful sweet memory for her and I…and score big points of course. let me know your thoughts…
Missing you and Gary…tell gary i have been using my pins at my new job!! I HAVE BEEN PINNNNNNNNING!!!!!!
How could I possibly say no?!?! And to top it all off…he made her this card for Valentine’s Day. Yes you heard me right…he made it.
Is that not the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen? So last week we found ourselves a barn and some nice glowy light and took some Valentine’s Day photos. I love Amanda and Chris to death…but more than anything I love how much photos mean to them. It makes my job very rewarding.
Amanda and Chris…I could write about how great you guys are but you already know what I think about that. We’ll be best friends forever…I just know it. 🙂
Chris…so sassy. 🙂
I’d say she has the sm-eyes down….
Well hello field, awesome light and model faces. <3
