When Katelyn messaged me a few months ago, I was so excited to hear from her! She and I have known each other since we were about fourteen when we were in the Abilene High School drumline together, specifically the pit. And yes, that involves band camp, super late nights and even more early mornings, and cool band kid tan lines. Katelyn was messaging me to tell me that she had met the love of her life, Jeremy, and they were ENGAGED!! I was and am so thrilled for her! They wanted to meet to talk about me potentially photographing their wedding, bridal, and engagement photos here in Abilene!
For those of you wondering, I always offer free bridal consultations to talk about your *dream* day. A Moment in Time offers photography of course, but also wedding planning and coordination, decor rentals, and a photo booth! It is also super important to meet and make sure that there is a good fit between the bride and groom and the wedding photographer and / or planner. You’re going to be spending a lot of time with your photographer and planner throughout the process and even more time on the big day! You need to make sure you enjoy his or her company!
Back to the fun facts about Jeremy and Katelyn. When I learned that they met online, I started brain storming how we would convey that at their session! As you can see below, first came messaging on computers, then came meeting, getting to know each other, then dating and getting engaged! (see the images with the pretty blue background and their laptops!) Katelyn also some great thoughts and ideas of what she wanted to accomplish with this session. She and Jeremy wanted it to look like half the session was inspired by New England engagement photos, and the other half West Texas engagement photos, including that gorgeous sun flare we got right as the sun was setting!
Enjoy these engagement photos of a wonderful couple, and look forward to their wedding photos come fall!!
