I met Jonathan + Katlyn through photographing their engagement and wedding in 2011. Photographers LOVE to get clients who come prepared with their own ideas for their sessions. 90% of the time we, the photographers, are coming up with the locations, bringing any props and curating the session. It is so refreshing when I get a client who knows what they want from their images and comes prepared with location ideas, props, and outfit changes to make it happen.
Katlyn is one of those DREAM clients! She has been so much fun to work with since day one. Jonathan rides rodeo so we photographed their engagement session in the bull pins where he rides. RAD. She kept her theme alive with a fun pair of cowgirl boots to wear under her wedding dress during her bridals. She graduated from nursing school recently and wanted to put a spin on her cap and gown and nursing uniform photos. Check that session out HERE!
So when Katlyn booked a date for their 1 year anniversary I knew right away that it would be nothing less than a super fun, incredibly cute, and totally unique session. And she didn’t disapoint!
Jonathan is on the Volunteer Fire Department in Hertford NC so we started our session at the fire station. We later hit up the beautiful sage fields (and just in time, too; the combine was starting to pick at the other end of the field as we were shooting!) And ended with something so super crazy! You’ll see at the end :-D
Ahhhh.. I love this image. Makes me feel like I’m reading a gushy romance novel.
Ok so here it is. Katlyn had a replica of their cake top made for our session. She said they didn’t get dirty with their cake on wedding day so it was time to do it NOW! We did the traditional cake cut and then…..
Katlyn + Jonathan, CONGRATS on surviving your first year, and to many many more!
