Ten years ago … YES 10 years ago … Caitlyn’s Mom started following me on facebook. She found me because I did a super fun photo shoot with one of her friends. And she decided that if I was still working as a photographer when her daughter grew up and got married, that she’d want me to be there to take the photos. And just like that … 10 years went by … and I got the call.
I can’t even begin to describe how my heart felt when I found this all out. Think confetti bomb.
So, I was already feeling pretty excited about everything (you know, because of the whole 10 years thing!) when I then learned that Caitlyn was dreaming of and hoping for a snowy engagement session. Oh, how I love snow-filled engagement photo shoots! Nothing is snugglier than snow and flannel!
Caitlyn and Shane live in Delaware and will be getting married there, too … but I suggested the Hudson Valley for their engagement photos because there’s a muuuuuuch higher likelihood of snow around these parts : ) And low and behold, the day we booked their session just so happened to have THE perfect amount of snow on the ground. It was a mere 14 degrees up at Minnewaska Park (brrrr)… but hey, that’s what the snuggles are for : )
Caitlyn and Shane, thank you for being such troopers out there in the snow. It was cooooooold! I am BEYOND excited for your upcoming winter wedding in Delaware. Let’s hope for the perfect coating of snow just in time for the big day. But regardless of whether it’s 20 or 80, it’s going to be amazing … and 10 years later, I absolutely CAN NOT WAIT to be there!!!!!!!!!!
