I hardly know where to start with this post.  So much background to cover! But first I want to start with how I met Caitlin!

Caitlin is extra special to me because she was literally probably our very first ever “blogstalker”!! Which means I automatically love her for life! In the beginning stages of the business, after I took over the blogging I was sure that the only people reading or checking in for photos were my family and friends.  So learning that someone I hadn’t met before was following our blog was like winning the lottery!! (haha ridiculous, but true) I remember meeting her for the first time and thinking she was the sweetest girl I had probably ever met!  It was the greatest day ever when she launched her blog so I could reciprocate the blogstalking and keep up with what was going on with her!  We would talk here and there, but in the last few weeks after she contacted us for her wedding I’ve learned so much more about this sweet girl, and my first impression was right.  She is precious from the inside out.  Probably one of the hardest working, caring, giving, beautiful individuals ever!   So of course there were high expectations for Ryan since I hadn’t met him yet.  It was so fun to sit in a coffee shop with her and listen to her talk about him.  Why she loved him, how they complimented each other, their dreams and aspirations.  So I was pretty much sold before we ever even met, but still Ryan lived up to the expectations.  And watching them interact, listening to them talk, seeing him hold her and hearing him make her laugh–it was right.  And they truly do compliment each other in every way.

It’s been so fun to be a part of this part of their love story and I’m so so excited for their wedding in May! It’s gonna be here before we know it!! And after you see these images, just imagine what Caitlin’s bridals are going to look like! Yep, she was quite easy to photograph! And Ryan? With his awesome hair and incredible guitar playing skills and keen sense of style? Pffft…it was basically like photographing rockstars or supermodels. So much fun! Hope you guys enjoy the pictures! And leave them some love in the comments section! 🙂

XOXO

awesome....great emotion in these shots....Caitlin is beautiful!

I guess I could comment :) To say that you guys are good is way understated. To say that you captured how I feel about Ryan is almost enough. But to say that you guys captured the beauty of why falling in love is just the greatest gift one could ever receive, that should do it. Love isn't something that is easily explained - especially when it comes to how I feel about Ry, but these images seem to make it make sense. And that is why I have always and will always admire you both!
