Confession: from the day that Brittany put on facebook that she and Kenny had set October 23rd as their wedding date, I put it as a tentative date on my calendar just hoping she would email me about photographing their wedding! She had mentioned last year at Emily and Nate’s wedding that she would be calling me one day, so when I saw they had set a date.. well, I guess wishful thinking got the best of me :0) Sure enough she did call and I am beyond thrilled and honored to be there for their big day! Brittany and Kenny are fellow CNU grads, and even though I’ve known Brittany since the beginning of our freshman year, I just met Kenny for the first time at their engagement session! They are truly the perfect fit; they bring out the best in each other and it made me happy just to be around them :0)
Since Kenny plays for the baltimore orioles, our window of opportunity to do their engagement session was pretty limited. The weather forecast for this past Monday was looking pretty stinky all week, but thankfully by Sunday it started looking up a little! It seemed we were going to have a great early afternoon for the session before it started raining all evening. Of course as I’m halfway to richmond, car issues left me sitting waiting for AAA to come rescue me. Perfect timing, right? Didn’t AAA know they needed to hurry up because I had awesome clients waiting and we NEEDED to beat the rain?!? By the time I got to Richmond I felt so terrible I was late, but all I saw were two smiling, excited faces happy to see me. AND they made me cookies. Best clients ever? HECK YES! :0)
So remember that rain we were trying to outrun? As soon as we got to the farm where they are getting married it started down pouring. DOWN. POURING. We barely had enough time to grab our stuff and run into the barn before getting soaked. We hung out in the barn and took some pictures, just praying this storm would keep moving and blow through. We waited about thirty minutes, and eventually it started easing up some.. and, well.. see for yourself what kind of afternoon it turned in to! :0)
look at her smiling despite the crazy rain that was happening two feet away from her :0) beautiful!! while the rain may have made everything pretty wet and muddy, it also made everything SO green and colorful!! :0) i have so, SO many favorites from their session, but I love how fun and playful this next series with the swing are :0) They’re getting married in October at the most GORGEOUS farm! Its going to be amazing with the fall colors everywhere! We tried to venture into this guys field for a few pictures, but he literally would not leave us alone! I’ve never seen a horse follow people around like this one did! So, we improvised a few pictures and then moved on to a different field ;0) Brittany was not quite as comfortable around the horses as Kenny was.. anyone guess what this picture reminds me of/why i like it so much? ;0) at this point we were having to find shade to dodge the blinding SUN! love it! I couldn’t pick just one of these either, so sue me ;0) rain?! what rain?!? HA! :0) I promise you it was pouring just 45 minutes earlier.. you don’t believe me now, do you? :0) check out that bling! Kenny and Brittany, thanks again for being so awesome. People like you are why I LOVE this job of mine :0) You’re the best, and I can’t WAIT to see everything come together in October for the wedding, I’m excited already!!
