Thanks to Whitney and her beautiful Zenith Vineyard wedding, I had the incredible privilege of meeting and capturing these two really. awesome. people and shooting their McMenamins Edgefield engagement photos. Like. really awesome.
Meet Kate and Casey.
It was a beautiful September afternoon and the wind was sending out signs that Fall was right around the corner. While Kate got beautified by our ever talented Blossom and Beauty, Casey relaxed at the nook of a bar down the hall, (such a patient guy).
Kate and Casey met when Kate joined the hospital where Casey worked as a physical therapist. I'm pretty sure it was her auburn locks that first caught his attention- but then again, maybe it was those star eyes of hers that keep changing between green, blue and grey. Either way, he knew he wanted to get to know this beauty. He waited a bit, biding his time and when she softened a bit- out came the invitation. It was an instant connection, and soon they were inseparable. Casey brings the best out of her and she him. They are very real, down-to-earth people, without pretense or affectation- just the kind that would make sincere, life-long friends. It's couples like these that get me excited, maybe because I have such a fun time capturing them. Or maybe because they're up for anything, even when I ask them to "run like a gazelle" lol. Seriously, I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants during this shoot.
I know they will work through the conflicts and upheavals that always accompany any relationship that's worth fighting for. I know that when June rolls around and they vow to love and respect till "death do us part" that it will be an epic celebration that you don't want to miss.
Thank Kate and Casey for being real with me, for making my job so effortless and being so happily in love. You both make me smile sitting here and June can't get here soon enough :)
