I’m not sure which I love more. When someone tells me that someday they are going to hire me as their wedding photographer and they do it over three years later as soon as they are engaged… orrrrrr when a bridesmaid from a past wedding I photographed books me. They both are so exciting and mean so much to me that that girl has always loved my work and followed me throughout the years. Kally was just that, and actually did both. I photographed her cousin’s wedding I think about three years ago! I believe it was my first wedding after switching to photography full time. So it was an exciting one. Kally was a bridesmaid and I didn’t get to know her too well, but of course after photographing Sadie and Steven’s northern Michigan wedding in their parent’s apple orchard … I became close friends with them and their whole entire family. We’ve been friends ever since so every time I see my friend Sadie, I got to see Kally more and more and just fell in love with this girl. She is soooo sweet and I am HONORED and so pumped to be their wedding photographer for their wedding coming this fall.
They live in northern Michigan [yeah, I’m super jealous], so we met up there for some lovely engagement photos. To capture this adorable couple. Sweet Kally and her amazing fiance Ryan. Oh and don’t forget about cute Bali. Who was not so pleased with the temperature that day. It was FREEZING. Like so so cold. We were ‘blessed’ with cold temperatures, even colder wind, and of course at the end of our session we got our winter wonderland snowflakes but more like a blizzard. I still had so much fun though and so thankful these two are tough in the cold. I had such a great time hanging out with them and getting to know them better. Ryan is actually a twin, which I just have to say … after booking a different wedding last week, I feel like I have a lot of grooms this year who are twins! So fun.
Ryan is definitely a keeper [as you already know Kally], he was so concerned about me slipping on the ice [being all big and preggo ya know] … he even put my shoes on for me after visiting Sadie [had to see her and her new baby]. Good man you got there Kally! 😉
Can’t wait for the big day … which will be much warmer! Sidenote, isn’t she beautiful??!!
