Today is a very special day on the blog! We always consider ourselves lucky to get to do what we do, but when we get to photograph friends, it’s an extra blessing! Most of Memphis may know Natalie as a top finalist on So You Think You Can Dance or as a cast member of Wicked, but to us, she is “Miss Natalie,” the one person who probably spends almost as much time with our kids as we do! Natalie is the competition director at our dance studio, and she is the one in charge of making our kids (and tons of others!) into the great dancers that they are turning out to be! We couldn’t be more grateful for her, so when we heard she was getting married, we were first in line to “audition” for the role of photographer! All cheesy puns aside, we are thrilled to be able to document this time in her life, and we can’t wait for the wedding!
There are so many things to love about an engagement session! But one of our very favorite things about them is that we get some one on one time with our couples, and really get to know them better on a personal level. Not only does this make us better equipped to photograph them on their wedding day, but it starts building a relationship so that we can truly call them friends later! It had been awhile since we first met with Taylor and George, so we were eager to hang out with them and learn more about how they love. We were in for such a treat!
Wow! What a start to our 2012 wedding season! We had an amazing time with Hayley and Patrick this weekend. I can’t wait to post the entire wedding, but for now, a little teaser (the bride and groom got ready at Mollie Fontaines lounge, and it was EPIC!):
Here’s to awesome preparations at a killer lounge. And a beautiful March day. And parties that last all night. Cheers!
