kinsey + colin.

You know that feeling of instant connection? In August, Quianna Marie Photography referred her client, Kinsey to me. I was in Spain at the time, mostly disconnected, but happened to be checking my phone at just the right time. 

Kinsey text and we hit it off right away. 

Within the third text we already were on the topic of teaching. Her with high schoolers, myself with preschool. And we both agreed that the other is a saint for dealing with their age group. 

Then the wedding planning talk started. And oh do I feel her pain. Ever since my own wedding, working with brides has felt different. I am significantly more patient, more communicative, and feel more connected to each gal. 

Confession! Sometimes I tear up... ok, even full on cry, while driving to my weddings just thinking about my own, all the feelings, and knowing exactly how my bride is feeling. It is the most overwhelmingly happy feeling ever. I am so fortunate to recall this feeling so often. 

If you don't already know, moms are often my favorite clients- sorry brides! I do love you too. When I opened the door to see Kinsey and her mom, I was so excited! Mom got cozy on my little couch and I got to work.

The conversation was effortless and so enjoyable. We discussed everything from what I was doing, to parenting, and our careers as educators. I even got some in site on parenting an only child- bonus! 

My favorite part of the conversation is always when my bride talks about her love: how they met and what she loves about them. 

Kinsey and Colin met at the gym! He was training for a show and was quite "yoked". They chatted several times, but it wasn't until meeting again at church that they solidified their feelings for one another. 

And you can clearly see their love captured in their photographs. 

It was beyond hard choosing some favorites. So, I chose a lot. 

The styling. Locations. EVERYTHING! I am just so in love with these images of Kinsey and Colin's love for one another.
