Being born and raised in East TN, their last name is quite easy for me...it's simply the way people in the Appalachians call strings. You know, like guitar strangs. :)
Okay, maybe I need to finish my cup of coffee before attempting to compose a blog post.
At any rate. I have never met a couple quite like this. I had the opportunity to meet them for the first time a few years ago and get to see them once a year or so. They are the sugary sweetest two people I have seriously ever met. Both of them are so attentive to whomever they are speaking to, as well as one another. I keep waiting for one of them to *SNAP* they are so nice, but they don't. They're just laid back and super, super duper give you a cavity kind of sweet.
I love that I get to know them and love that they trusted me to photograph their beautiful little selves.
Missing our posts on the blog?
You don't know how it pains me to say these words...BUT for right now, keep up with what we're into on our Facebook business page. Here's the link...our blog is broken...again....
Every now and then a tremendous person walks in your life and you wonder why it took them so long to get there. I've never found the answer to that question other than God's timing...but I'm always glad it finally happened. This family is one of "those". Instantly I felt like I had known them for years. Turns out, we are connected by a couple of different circles of people. So cool when that "small world" thing happens, isn't it?
Driving to their house, they have a LOOOOOOOONG driveway that happens to be one lane. When I say long driveway, I mean, I've never visited a home (ever) with a driveway this long. So secluded and perfect.
Here's what we did in the land of the lost.....the grand baby and the sweet engaged couple. Looking forward to the next encounter in neverland. :)
I love photographing young couples in love. The engagement period is a bliss filled time where couples are just...well...all over each other. ha! Mushy, smushy lovin'. It's fun to watch and makes for amazing images.
My hope is simply this...after they are married for 4 years, 8 years, 10 years......and life becomes normal and mundane....when they look back on this session, I hope it will cause them to remember why they fell in love with one another in the beginning.
That's a nice thought to close with for now.
The goat kind of kid, that is!
I just have to say, if you love your farm animals and would like to have them photographed....as long as you promise to not let them eat me, I would LOVE to come photograph them for you! Just bringing a little bit of the outdoors into your interior designing efforts. I wish I could show you the wall collection we designed from this shoot. I can't wait to see them all in print!
