Happy Tuesday, internet!

This super sweet team is getting married next July and I couldn’t be more excited to capture their big day. When I first met with Hannah over the summer, we hit it off instantly. Her sense of humor especially. I mean really, within five minutes of being around her, I knew we were on the same level and because of that I was at ease much faster with her from the get go. She told me about Ryan and how he proposed. How she actually met me years ago at a bar but because of my sketchy memory from that time, I don’t remember. Sorry about that, Hannah! 🙂

We took these photos around Hannah’s parents neighborhood. A neighborhood that I drove past EVERY DAY during my high school days and had never seen for myself. There’s something to be said for having a quiet space to take photos. It’s weird having your photo taken – at first. For some people it’s strange the entire time and I get that, too. I always say if you aren’t having fun, I’m not doing a good job.  I’m no stranger to those first few minutes with a giant camera in your face and the expectation to just “look natural”. I stopped trying to get the perfect photos with the perfect setting and backdrop long ago. For me it’s become much more about just slowing down with people who care a lot about each other and being able to create some space for them to enjoy each other. Having a quiet space without too many onlookers helps 🙂

Wait until you see their dog, Penny. Softest and sweetest dog I think I’ve ever photographed…

I’ll always tell couples to close their eyes and check in. We move so freaking fast these days, it’s rare we take a minute for something like this. Love this so much.

If I were you guys, I’d frame this for your parents and watch them cry when they open it as a Christmas gift. Is that just my mom???
