This all goes right along with a story I shared in an engagement shoot post a couple of months ago! I was sitting in Avoca coffee working on my website and thinking about my desire to work with more couples. As I sat there pondering this, in through the doors walked the cutest guy and girl with smiles all over their faces and seriously on point style. I knew immediately that I just HAD to photograph them. However, there was a problem, I didn’t know them. This road block left me a little bit upset, but then I remembered a challenge my friend had given me almost a year ago to start asking random strangers if I could photograph them. The challenge weighed heavily on me as I awkwardly stared this couple down…or not couple…I didn’t even know! Too bad. I took a deep breath, counted to three, walked across the coffee shop, mumbled a variety of words about my business, found out they were just friends, handed them a card with embarrassment, and then walked away feeling like the world had been conquered. A few weeks later I got a text from Hannah asking me if I could photograph her recently engaged friends. Conquering my fear had paid off and I met some stinking awesome people through it! It gets better though…., Hannah and Chris started dating!!!! You better believe I jumped up and down in a major freak out moment. It didn’t take long until they agreed to do a styled session with me. I would say that two awesome photo sessions was the best possible thing to get out of all of this, but it was really the meeting of these incredible people who made walking all over my fears one of the best things I’ve ever done. These two just overflow with kindness, sweetness, joy, and humbleness. They both have awesome stories and their story together is one that I personally think is down right beautiful. Put on a pretty song, sip a cup of coffee, and take in the beauty of what love looks like. The end.
