From their oh-so-sweet smiles to their outfits that matched their surroundings perfectly, I can’t tell you how excited I am to share Kerry and Kelsey’s Celery Bog engagement photos on the blog!
To be honest, Kelsey received the worst sales pitch I’ve ever given! I was cleaning my bathroom floor when my phone rang. Thinking it was my hair salon calling to confirm my appointment, I answered the phone. Then, I heard a voice sweetly say, “Hi. My name is Kelsey, and I have questions about your wedding photography packages.”
I threw the scrub brush down and grabbed my computer to see if her date was available. And, of course, the wifi decided to quit. Five minutes later—this encounter is a true testament to how sweet and patient Kelsey is—I was positive I still had August 10, 2019 open, and I walked Kelsey through all of the wedding photo package details.
I’m so glad my super pathetic phone consult didn’t deter Kelsey, because it only took a phone call and meeting over coffee for me to realize that I ADORE her. And, after their engagement session, I realized that Kerry is equally as wonderful. I’m SO excited for their enchanted forest wedding in August of next year!
My husband and I couldn’t be anymore different, and after three and a half year of marriage, I’ve realized that our differences are what: 1. Make doing life together interesting and fun. 2. Keep us balanced. God knew I needed Zach!
So, when I see couples who are also opposites, I get really excited! For the rest of Kerry and Kelsey’s lives, I know that they’ll take each other out of their comfort zones, bring each other balance, and have a whole lot of fun.
I mean, while Kelsey is sweet and shy, Kerry is outgoing and seems like he makes friends everywhere he goes. Kelsey loves sweets and to bake, but Kerry isn’t necessarily a big sweets guy (He’s not complaining about having a lady who loves to bake for him though!). And, while Kelsey adores glitter, Kerry can’t stand it.
These high school sweethearts are opposites in a lot of ways, but they share the most important things: 1. Love for each other. 2. Love for their golden retrievers! Side note: I really hope I get to meet their puppies!
If you’ve ever done an engagement or couple session with me, you know that I have basic poses and more advanced poses. Typically, I start with the basics and then work up to poses that are a little more difficult. But, not with these two!
The very first pose Kerry and Kelsey did for their Celery Bog engagement photos was a pose I typically save for the last 15 minutes of a session. These two are naturals! I think it’s because they’re so comfortable with each other and because they both radiate joy. Whatever it is, I know their wedding is going to be a breeze to photograph!
Kerry and Kelsey’s wedding is going to be incredible for so many reasons:
Long story short, their wedding will be great, and August 2019 can’t get here fast enough!
Kerry and Kelsey, thank you for trusting me to be your wedding photographer. You two couldn’t be any sweeter, and I have no doubt that your wedding day will be a testament to what loving, kind relationships look like.
