Christy & Jeff 01/14/12

Some people you meet, you just know… or well I know.  I know usually within the first ten minutes of meeting someone if I want to spend more time with them, get to know them, or find their story appealing.  I’ll be honest, usually 8 out of 10 people I’ll lean towards the positive end of the scenario.. and the other 2 of 10.. well..we’ll just part ways politely in most cases.  In the first 10 minutes, usually you get an idea- are they positive people, negative people, people who are timid or shy, people who are outgoing or boisterous?

Our first meeting with Christy and Jeff was after their engagement session shot by Scott and Whitney, so we kinda knew they were cool folks..and knew what they looked like (score for first meetings!).. but had no idea they were absolutely awesome people! We met Christy and Jeff at one of our favorite coffee shops in Hbg before Christmas and learned their story and details of their day which included Jeff’s adorable little lady, Addy. By the end of our meeting I felt like we were chatting with old friends who just happened to be getting married.  They were completely compatible for one another (oh yeah kids, we tone in on this during first meetings), very comfortable with one another, and we just so darn excited to get married and put the final touches on their newly built home!

Christy and Jeff’s wedding was our first of 2012 so with visions of hope and inspiration, Scott and I headed out to the state capitol rotunda.  Again when meeting up with these two for their first look and portraits, we felt a part of their family, not outsiders who just happened to have cameras.  With all the positive energy, I knew it was going to be a great day and many wonderful shots would be obtained and treasured.  One of my absolute favorite moments of their wedding was the kiss of course… Jeff picked Christy up, with Addy watching in awe on a nearby step, swung her around for a gorgeous moment and the best princess kiss a Disney loving kid could ever see!  Okay my description might be sappy but it was an awesome moment and one I’ll never forget!  Thanks again to this awesome family for bringing us in on one of the happiest days of your lives!
