I've known Kristene since I started working at my current school, and it has been so wonderful to see her find the love of her life, Matt! It is always so much fun for me to see couples in their element, laughing with each other and just being in love! I also love getting to see people I work with get to let loose a little bit! :) Sometimes it is hard to get people to feel comfortable in front of the camera...but with enough ridiculous jokes, I was able to get these two giggling and showing me some great, authentic smiles! :)
They are having a fall wedding (which is now coming up FAST!), so we wanted to get some nice fall-ish photos (in March! haha) for their save the dates! :) We had a great time running all over this incredible park, and it had so many great nooks for photos!
Meet Kristene + Matt! :) Wishing them all the happiness in the world as they start their life together! :)
Personal Side Note: I had, just the day before this session, found out that I was pregnant, and man was it hard not to say anything throughout the whole photo session! haha I was terrified/ecstatic, and just wanted to tell everyone I saw! I also had to go to the bathroom every five seconds...which was rather nerve-wracking when traversing this huge park with my gear! ha I'm also used to crawling on the ground and climbing on things during photo shoots, so I had to rethink my approach a little bit! Love though that I have that amazing memory associated with this already happy session! :)
Her ring is super stunning and not your everyday engagement ring! :) I had fun putting it in very strange places to take photos...while Matt stood by me and had a heart attack that I was going to lose it! haha
I always like to get a few fun ones of couples being silly with each other! :)
Here's to many more years of smiles for the two of you! :) The best is yet to come!
