Kate called us prior to having an official wedding date selected. She knew she had it narrowed down to a few options but wanted to make sure that we were going to be available. We had taken the photos at her sister’s wedding – since everything went so smoothly and the whole family was pleased with all of our services they had no question about where to go for a photographer. Kate came in to talk about the package details for the timeline of the wedding, we are always happy to help our couples decide on the best timing of photos on their wedding day. Our packages include an engagement session because it is nice to get to know how a couple interacts, it also gives them an opportunity to have some great photos taken together. Kate and Kevin met at Bar Louie in the Central West End, they lived there for a bit as well. So this area was perfect for their engagement session. Of course we had to get a photo with the sign from the bar and I wanted to know how they actually met. Turns out they work at the same place and have some mutual friends. When they went to Bar Louie it wasn’t really a set up date, it was more of a “hey you should meet this person that worked on a project with me” Of course the friend that introduced them is super happy about the outcome. We are as well because we get to work with these two great people. We walked around the Central West End taking photos along the way, while we chatted about the wedding plans. The weather was so wonderful that it made it very easy to take our time and enjoy every moment. Kate and Kevin decided that after the session they would stick around and have dinner. I’m sure it was just a great day that they got to spend together not worrying about work or any other responsibilities for a while. I’m sure they will love the photos and we look forward to working with them on their wedding day.
