We booked Kristen’s wedding last fall, for the upcoming fall. Not only is she incredibly funny, but she gets the award for most patient “bride to be”. I say that because during our consultation she got a phone call from her fiance. Not unusual, except that he was calling from Djibouti, Africa. Charles was finishing out his last few months with the military over in Africa. I am constantly amazed at technology that she was chatting away with him in our living room and he is almost 1/2 way around the world!
We were so excited that they wanted to book an engagement session so we could meet the illusive Charles. He was just how we expected him to be, incredibly witty! We had soooo much fun with this couple shooting around downtown and Old City Cemetery. We did not have to try hard to get them to laugh. In fact, it was just the opposite, trying to get them to be serious!
Can I make a personal note? This couple is TALLLLLLL! Charles is 6’4” and Kristen is 6’0…but had four inch heels on and Ryan is 6’6”. My vertical is 5’2”. I felt like the little sister that was tagging along 16 inches below! Luckily, they let me play too.
Here are some of my favorites from our blisteringly hot session.
Kristen was not a fan of dipping, but she was a good sport.
They just don’t know how to have a good time do they?
Charles sheepishly asked if he could throw out a “silly” idea. We LOVE when our couples come to the table with some ideas too. Charles does jujitsu and occasionally will box. He and Kristen have a joke that she likes to take some frustration out by giving a good slug against something….so Charles had some boxing gloves and wanted to go a few rounds with Kristen.
The clear winner is….
Kristen has a 37 inch inseam!!!! I am just slightly jealous of her extremely long legs!
The last shot of the night.
You guys are AWESOME!!! The Blue Steel award goes to Charles. We can not wait to shoot your wedding in September. We know we are going to have a blast with you, your family and friends!
