Although I did these bridal portraits way back in the beginning of September, things got so busy this fall that I never really blogged them. Katie was one of the most carefree and brave brides I have ever worked with. She trusted my every move, and I’m so thankful for it. As we were out tromping through the field, she said to me (very nonchalantly, I might add) “By the way, I’m terrified of snakes.” Snakes aren’t something I normally think much of, but since we were wading through some thick brush, I had her follow in my footsteps…and made sure if a snake was going to get anyone, it would be me and not the bride! At one point, I got snagged by a briar bush, screamed and scared the holiness out of both of us. But we laughed and went about our way, capturing beautiful portraits of this beaming bride.
During her engagement photos, bridal portraits, wedding day and newlywed session, I got to know Katie a little better each time, and I’m so glad to call her a friend. She is a beautiful person, inside and out, who loves people and has a huge heart for kids. She will make a wonderful teacher!
Without further ado, here is the lovely Katie.
