Today I am writing about this amazing couple, Brittany and Ricky, and I am so glad I get to. Brittany and I went to the same school all throughout grade school and high school, road the same bus for a couple years, and even walked down that graduation stage together. Though she and I actually didn't talk very much to each other throughout school for whatever reason, I could always tell she was a really sweet, intelligent, and happy person.
When Brittany asked me to take her engagement AND wedding photos, I was more than excited! The idea of capturing such an important time is someone's life makes me feel beyond grateful as it is, but for someone I saw grow as a person (even just from a distance in school) is a total honor. And when she said she wanted these photos taken on Ricky's family's golf course... I stopped in my tracks with excitement - "everything sounds beautiful!" was my response.
Brittany and Ricky have a certain connection that is just perfect, especially for engagement photos. Ricky was only worried about Brittany getting the pictures she wanted, so he just went with the flow (the way it should be, right, ladies?). Brittany giggled through most of it, at which Ricky smiled at her every time. He even laughed with her at one point and said "you're so funny, Brit." while still laughing and looking at her like he was just amazed by this woman.
(Ugh, I remember that because I thought it was one of the cutest things ever.)
I may only know some of Brittany's story - you know, the obvious stuff like the fact that she was a cheerleader in grade school and high school, got good grades, had a leadership personality, seemed to be a good friend, and was always smiling - but I'm still absolutely thrilled to be able to add to the little bit of her story that I know by capturing this exciting part of her life from the engagement photos to the "I dos" in her beautiful wedding dress.
Congratulations, lovely people! I cannot wait for their wedding in June! It's going to be amazing! ...I mean A TACO BAR, really??
