these two… are amazing people. i could write a novel about how we throughly enjoyed our long afternoon with them.
it all started in december when andy sent the most precious and thoughtful e-mail to us. he had not yet proposed to his girl of 8 years, but he was getting the ring and they knew one thing for sure… they wanted to drive from arkansas to birmingham for us to photograph them! of course, we ate that up and started counting down the days until our session. about a month before our scheduled date, i e-mailed andy just to check in on things and see if the question had been popped yet and this was his response:
“mrs. emma mam,
this is it.
ring is in.
plans are set.
here we go.”
i think i teared up upon reading this.
instantly upon meeting andy and brittany, we realized how comfortable our session would be. it felt like we were photographing two people we’d known for years. it’s such a blessing to document lives that line up with our own in so many ways. we had the pleasure of taking these dear people out to dinner before their trek back to arkansas. we consider them friends. precious friends. it really amazes me that this is my job. thank you, andy and brittany, for being amazing clients and new amigos, but more than that, for trusting us and believing in our work.
