I have to say outright, I just feel so lucky I get to work with such cool people. I actually met Emily and John last spring when Emily contacted me to make some graduation and couple’s photos for the two of them and we just had a blast! Fast forward a few months and they were engaged (yay!). So I was even more tickled when Emily and John asked me to be the photographer for their wedding next year, especially since I know we already have a great connection in front of and behind the camera. And that connection continued as we made their Missoula riverside engagement photos just a few days ago. I’m fairly certain we didn’t stop giggling during our entire shoot. Always a good thing (wait a second – a GREAT thing!) in my book!
We had such a good time wandering around the shoreline of the river, catching great light, walking through the woods, and even getting treated to a great evening glow by the time their session was wrapping up. But I think the best part about making their engagement photos was getting to watch these two laugh together, be a little goofy together (my favorite!), and just flat out be in love with one another.
We joked that we were going to do our best to not make apocalyptic engagement photos (because the smoke clouds around Missoula were blowing up that evening!), they told me some hilarious stories about an accidental river-tube-floating encounter they had (hello baptism!), and we all cracked up when I got so excited my words turned to pure gibberish (I can’t help myself sometimes!).
Emily and John! Such a delightful evening with you two, as per usual. :) I’ve said this about a gazillion times already, but I just love getting to make photos for you both, and I am SO excited for your wedding next year! Have a safe move west and I’ll see you two again in Missoula for your wedding day!
