In full disclosure we know Clif and Jenn. They go to our church and Ryan and Clif work in the “nerdery” at Moore and Giles together. So we know them but we know them even better than we thought we did because their story of getting together is so eerily similar to Ryan and my story.
You know how it goes…..friends for years until attraction starts forming and then you agonize over how in the world you could ever cross over into “Loversville” when “Friendville” has been so awesome. What if “Loversville” didn’t work out or “Loversville” felt weird? ”Friendville” is so comfortable and familiar…WE DON’T WANT TO MESS UP “FRIENDVILLE”! I am so glad Ryan and I got over our fear of leaving “Friendville” and I am soooo glad Clif and Jenn got over it too! What an awesome couple!
I am fairly certain if you looked up the word “kind” in the dictionary you would see Jenn’s smiling face looking back at you. She is so sweet, generous, and just plain nice. You can’t not like her. Clif is devilishly clever, ridiculously smart, and totally in love with his best friend and soon-to-be wife. They are pretty rad.
We had a sunny and cool February afternoon roaming the grounds of my friends land. There was LOTS of laughing, joke cracking and stories but these two managed to pull it together with a serious dose of romance. Without further ado…..
So I have never hidden the fact that I am not a cat lover. I have never harmed a cat but I certainly don’t go out of my way to be nice. We have had a lot of bad experiences with cats in our neighborhood and I just think they are erratic and not friendly on the whole (don’t throw rocks cat lover readers). Any who….we had a furry friend following us EVERYWHERE the WHOLE time! It was more than annoying and you probably spotted this little guy in some of the photos even though we tried hard to chase him out of the way. I mean how can this kitty be anything but sweet?
He was SOOOO sweet he couldn’t keep his claws off of Jen and Clif. I had to show these shots because they make me giggle now even though at the time I was ready to punt the cat across the field. The last shot on the right is right before Ryan ripped the cat off Clif’s chest only to have the cat claw Clif’s tie causing some not-so-pleasant results to the tie. We owe Clif a tie now.
It was so worth cats clawing and sticks poking in order to get dreamy shots and beautiful lighting all evening long.
Five more weeks guys till we are shooting the real deal! We can’t wait to spend your big day with you both.
