I have to start off by saying these two deserve a medal for the obstacles they went through for engagement pictures! Not only did they drive from 2+ hours away on the weekend before Thanksgiving, but they also withstood 30 degree weather and chilling winds. Looking at their pictures, you would've never known how cold they actually were. Julia & Philip were champions! Seriously, they don't even look cold at all!!
Julia and I had been communicating via email for quite a few months and had not actually met in person since they live out of town. I'm always afraid clients aren't going to be themselves in front of the camera if we have never met, but these two had no problems feeling comfortable! I like to learn a little bit about our couples during our time together and was amazed to find out these two met in high school. It's not every day you meet young couples who have known each other that long...it is such a cool story for these two to tell their future children! How perfect are they?
Despite the cold weather, it was a great day getting to know Philip & Julia a little better! I absolutely can't wait until their wedding next summer....especially since it will be my first wedding since November and I will be itching to get back into wedding season. Luckily, I can just look back at pictures like this stunning ring to hold me over ;)
Congratulations, you two!! Enjoy the holidays and we look forward to seeing you again in 2017 for your big day!!!
