Brittney and Micah are brave – both were in different states when I first heard from them and they hired me to photograph their wedding on the word of a sister. We hadn’t even met yet! Over the phone, Brittney told me about this man she was so in love with, of the wedding they were planning, and of her family that was sure to make the day a loud celebration. The longer she talked, the more excited she sounded. I was envisioning the day and wishing I could see and meet this Brittney who obviously felt so much joy at the thought of marrying her Micah.
When we finally met last week for their engaged session, Brittney shared her nervousness of cameras. She had the giggles. You know, the giggles you get when you’re uncomfortable. Brittney was all giggles. Because of our phone conversations, I knew how much she adores Micah, so I wasn’t too worried about getting her to relax. Love has a way of blocking out fears, and it only took a few minutes wrapped in his arms for all traces of nervousness to leave her face. The rest of the photo shoot flew by, and I got back to my office with a camera full of images that showed only love for each other. <3
I LOVE these ‘ring shots’… so timeless yet intimate.
