Just a few weeks before their wedding, I finally met with Katie and TJ for a coffee and to break the ice – hard to believe they had booked me months ago and I still hadn’t met them in person. We sat in the brightest corner of Starbucks and talked for a bit about their “retro, tropical backyard” wedding day. TJ kept his sunglasses on the whole time (don’t blame him) and once Katie pushed hers aside I about lost it. “Holy crap your eyes are so pretty!” No wonder TJ was crazy for this girl. After a few minutes of wedding talk, I dragged them to a park nearby and we took advantage of Katie’s makeup trial and had a quickie engagement sesh.
Fast forward to March 21 : Katie and her girls were getting ready at the Hilton Garden Inn in West Palm.
Thank goodness Katie and TJ opted for a first look – it was BLAZING hot that day, and Katie’s makeup was fresh for their first few portraits.
Congratulations, Katie and TJ! And I hope you weren’t joking when you said you want me to photograph more events with you guys – cuz I kinda love y’all!
