I met Noel and Jeff back in December at Starbucks where we drank coffee and talked for almost 2 hours! We instantly clicked and knew we would be a great fit for each other on the wedding day! :) Fast forward to engagements — the most unique experience to date ;-) Haha!! We started with a family shot of Noel, Jeff and their 2 dogs! Seems pretty normal right? Well Jazzy, their beagle, sat still for about 2 shots, and then dartedpast me and never stopped! LOL, literally from zero MPH to full speed — gone! We all kind of looked at each other and then ran separate ways trying to find her!! She got a little taste of freedom and the girl took it and ran (pun intended, LOL). It took us around 40 minutes to find her so we lost a lot of day light!! If you know me as a photographer you know I’m all about some dreamy light so naturally, I wanted to schedule another 30 minute session with them to make up for the light we missed. We’ve been trying for weeks and between busy schedules and the darn weather, it hasn’t happened. So I’m sharing their engagements from March and hoping, praying and crossing my fingers I get them in front of my lens again for a few minutes before their Manteo, NC wedding in October!! :-) I’m so excited these two chose me to capture their wedding and to just be a part of their special day. It means so much to me!! After we found Jazzy at their engagement session, we spent the rest of the evening laughing a LOT as we shot some gorgeous portraits!! At the end of the night I asked Jeff to take an iPhone shot of Noel and I and — as he took my phone he instantly started ‘posing’ us, LOL! Seriously, I loved every second with these two and am SO beyond excited for them!!! Looking forward to shooting many more gorgeous shots with you two ;-) Health and Happiness, xo!
