“I was a little nervous, as I dont always like 100% attention on me., but i was also excited. And Brendan HATES photos, so i was nervous as to how he was going to react being told to “pose”. BUT it turned out awesome”

2016-04-21_0002

I have to say, had they not told me about being nervous, I really wouldn’t have known. We laughed thru the session and drove around to a few awesome spots. This spring has been a tough one to shoot in, locations that we normally could or would use haven’t been filled with the normal colour yet. So on this day, we drove around and worked with places we found. Which, if I must say, worked out pretty great.

After the hour and a half session, we called it a wrap and as Amber said “It turned out awesome and was actually fun. I like how you made it so easy. You gave Brendan no time to think about the fact that he was taking photos for 1.5 hours :)”… That in my book, someone that “HATES” having their photos done not realize that we were rocking the session for 1.5 hours, is a win win win… haha…

2016-04-21_0004Really, Amber and Brendan are pretty great together. They laugh and play… The story of how they met is pretty fitting… “My best friend from Quinnipiac is Brendan’s best from from home (they grew up in Bristol together). I had met brendan via our mutual friend Ryan a few times when he visited quinnipiac. Ryan decided that “we were the same person” and decided to play mr. match maker. He told each of us that the other “liked us and we should just go on a date”. I went on the first date thinking I had nothing to lose because Brendan already liked me, and he did the same, but truth is that wasnt the case at all. It wasnt until almost 8 months later that we figured out the set up.” So I think we all need to give Ryan two thumbs up on how he planned their meeting all out. I mean….  He likes you, She likes you….. That’s a pretty smooth move for a matchmaker. haha…

Anyway… If there’s one thing Amber could share about the engagement session it was this….. “have fun, dont wear heels lol”

For now, they wait for their wedding day……………

Collinsville Ct. Engagement Session“Be open minded and come prepared to have fun! It’s a great way to get to know (and become comfortable) with your photographer! Oh and don’t be alarmed but there’s ALOT of PDA that day….lol” 

That was the key piece of advice that Kimone wanted to share about the engagement session. And there is surely a chance you may kiss more during our session than the week leading up to it. haha…. Really though, these two were awesome. They met in medical school down in Nashville and became “study buddies”…. ( mmhhmmmmm… We know what that means. haha.) Really though, they were study buddies and it blossomed into much more and now, they have their wedding day to look forward to and their forevers together.

2016-04-13_0012From the second these two showed up, it was all laughs and good times. The only thing I’m bummed about is that I missed the crash course in how to tie a bow tie on the ride in. While the day was unfolding, it’s not to say there weren’t thoughts or concerns. I mean, this is the second most important day, next to your wedding. (okay, maybe it’s not but just play along here…)

For Kimone, there were some thoughts and concerns “Before the session I was excited and nervous, wondering whether I would look awkward in the pictures. I kept hoping Tim would give us alot of direction in terms of posing, etc..I wondered whether the weather would be nice enough for the outfit I had in mind. The day of I was nervous about how cold it felt in the AM and whether it was going to rain or not.” And you see, it’s not something that is incredibly comfortable. You’re going to be spending time with your photographer, having photos taken, asked to kiss, play, do some things that may not feel all that comfortable. So being nervous is natural. That’s one of the reason the engagement session is so important. It gives us a chance to work together before your day actually gets here. We should have a blast with it, and enjoy it… As they said, when I asked what their thoughts were after the session, “I had such a blast that for the entire rest of the day we kept saying how we’re so glad we did the shoot in general (we had been discussing whether it was even necessary or not) and how glad we were that we had instructions/directions and that he did a great job at bringing lots of humor into the day so that we could relax and have awesome photos!”

Anyway… Enough of my rambling… Let’s wish these two the best over the coming months leading up to what will be an awesome day at The Riverview in Simsbury…. Can’t wait guys!!!!!

In with our full posts, we’re going to begin sharing some favorite images from the past, present and future as well. Okay okay, maybe sharing images from the future will be tough, but at least we have faith that we’re going to have some. These quick shares will generally be one image, or one layout of an image set. Sometimes, there’s a certain image that just speaks to a wedding day. It’s as simple, not as simple, as that.

Cranwell Resort and Spa Lenox Mass Wedding

This moment, before a bride walks down the aisle. A few quiet thoughts. Maybe she’s thinking about the individual who will be waiting at the other end of the aisle for her. Maybe it’s that she will finally have her forever? (I’m really stuck on this forever thing because I believe in it. And it’s something I’m ready for in life)… Anyway, back to this bride. Maybe she’s reflecting back on all the moments that lead them to this point. Maybe some lows, maybe the highs. But each moment brought her to this one right here. In her wedding gown. The bride she always dreamed of being. For her groom, the man who will now have her back as she too has his….

It’s these moments right here, in a wedding day, that speak so incredibly loud, all while they are so magically quiet………
