Lauren and Kody’s engagement session was one I’d been looking forward to since Lauren and I sat down over lattes in February and gabbed for two hours. What I love about her is knowing with 100 percent certainty that she booked me for me. Not because I happened to be “some photographer who’d do”, but because she found something in my work and my personality that she wanted represented in her wedding photographs and because she wanted a relationship with her photographer that went beyond me being “just” a vendor at her wedding. All of which makes Lauren and Kody the type of clients those of us who are wedding photographers love the most. And, without any surprise, I had a blast getting to know these two better on a quiet, laid-back Sunday morning earlier this month. We were up with the birds, which meant we got to take advantage of the yummy morning light without anybody else to keep us company. Lauren and Kody, if I didn’t know it before, I definitely do now——I cannot wait until your big day in October!
See what I mean about the light? I’ love morning sessions like this because it’s just a beautiful time of day that you’d normally be under the covers——too pretty to miss for that! Lauren, you are B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!Oh, girl, go ON with your pretty self. Seriously….(I told Lauren she’s the taller, brunette sister that Reese Witherspoon never knew she had)LOVE this next series! After a little wardrobe change, we hit up the deserted streets of Noblesville — it’s so nice to shoot at a time of day when you have an entire town to yourself. On this day, 8 a.m. seemed to do the trick! FAVORITE!You’d be giggling like these two here if you knew that 5 seconds before I took this photo, Kody almost fell off that pipe. Kody, we weren’t laughing at you, we were laughing with you. ;) I adore clients who trust me when I ask them to sit down in out-of-the-way, random places. Good light trumps location any day, right photographers? And this is some GOOODDD light! Lauren had her self some sweet cowboy boots from Tennessee — love that she brought ‘em along for their session.And one last shot at a random barn we spotted on our way for a Starbucks pick-me-up. Can’t think of a better shot to keep us waiting until we see them again as a bride and groom!
