This beautiful couple is tying the knot in 2018 in an old steam plant (so lots of brick and history), which is the reasoning behind one of the locations of their engagement session.
Before this session with Katelyn and Evan, I had never met either of them. Katelyn found me and asked me about engagement photos right off the bat. We scheduled a session, then a local wedding was on the table (instead of the destination wedding they had planned on doing), so we quickly booked that as well. But, boy, am I glad she contacted me, because something about this session gives me chills.
Maybe it's the locations fitting them so perfectly. Maybe it's how passionate their love is for one another even in those candid moments, and how obvious it is at even a glance. Maybe it's the fact that I could tell how important these photos were to both of them (not just the bride). I say this because Evan had some requests of his own as well.
First, before heading to the second location, he made sure to ask for photos in front of the white brick building because he loves that look. I admired his urgency, as he didn't want to leave this location before getting those photos. Then, and this was one of my favorite things ever, before their hour session was up, he asked if I would take some more photos of them in front of the yellow flowers. Not because he thought they were neat, but because he knew that Katelyn's favorite color of flower is yellow. He saw these yellow wildflowers and took this as an opportunity to get meaningful photos taken of the two of them. I'm being completely candid when I say that made my heart explode into a million pieces. Katelyn hadn't asked for these photos or said a word about the yellow flowers. Evan just knows his bride, and very clearly believes in sentiment.
I love everything about this session, and I'm so excited to see what kind of beautiful fun their wedding holds next year.
