I met Natalie and Mike for the first time on the day of their engagement shoot. They also had their handsome dog Cooper with them. Dogs are the ultimate icebreakers. Cooper acted like he had been waiting his whole life to have his professional photos taken, and he did not disappoint. He fed the camera cute look after cute look and required very little direction- ideal client if you will. Natalie and Mike were pretty effortless as well. They were so laid back and at-ease. A few minutes into the shoot I felt like I had known them for a lot longer. I adored the story of how they met and keep replaying it in my head ever since I heard it. It’s a story that could be turned into a rom-com script. They both met while grocery shopping at a Whole Foods! They bonded over a discussion on hot sauce. Right then and there they decided to grab a drink together at Whole Foods, hung out into the evening and even kissed goodnight. The rest is history! How cool is that? Such a simple, everyday happening that turned into so much more.
We took these photos about 3 weeks out from their actual wedding. These two had a destination wedding last month in Florida and so they are already blissfully married! I can’t thank you both enough for having me take your engagement photos. I’m so excited to share these today and hope you love them as much as I loved taking them! XO Jess
