If you watch our social media feeds and/or read our blog regularly than you will have probably noticed that we photograph a lot of weddings at Temple’s Sugar Bush. We are there 6 or 7 times a year and I honestly love that we visit this wonderful venue (and all of the truly amazing staff) so often. But the time always comes each year where we are photographing our last wedding there and although this year that was Megan + Brendan’s wedding day. And although we are said that we won’t be shooting on their grounds until next year, Megan + Brendan were such a fantastic way to end off our 2019 Temple’s weddings.
Some couples we just click with. When we meet I instantly know that I am the photographer for them and they are the couple for me. We could talk endlessly about all the very best (and nerdiest) of things and have a wonderful time doing so. Nadine + Kevin are definitely one of those couples!
For us, the day we chose to get married was actually based on availability of a few of our preferred vendors and not for the date itself. And even though I joke that it was chosen because it is 6-months from my birthday (and I therefore get a present every 6-months), it truly was just a day in September that fit our criteria. That being said, it is now a very special date for us and the fact that we now share it with two people as truly wonderful as Leandra + Lucas is pretty darn awesome!
When Chantal + Brendan asked if they could alter their engagement session for a part engagement part family session I of course said yes. We have done a few of these over the years and it is a great way to let your entire family be part of your engagement and just the photo session in general. But upon meeting Tessa and their pup Maya, I am so, so glad they wanted them to be included because not only is Maya such a good doggo, but Tessa is without a doubt the coolest ten year old I have ever met!
I don’t remember exactly how long that first meeting was, but I know that it was definitely one of my longer consults and ever since I sat down for coffee with Hannah + Curtis I have been super excited for their wedding day! And as the big day got closer and closer, my excitement levels only went up and up! But honestly, even though I was super pumped to work at this venue and with all of the wonderful vendors these two had chosen to be part of their day, the thing I was most excited for was getting to capture these two amazingly kind souls.
