Say hello to Bailey, her fiancé Matt and their dog, Jackson. I recently had the privilege of spending the evening with them, traversing the Arkansas countryside and creating some engagement photos along the way. Matt is from the UK and he moved to US as the result of a job transfer. He met Bailey through an early morning gym routine. (Matt says that she motivated him to continue to get up early to work out). Although their jobs keep them both very busy, they enjoy spending time together relaxing in the downtown Bentonville area or at home watching Fútbol (Soccer, for all you American blokes). Here's a few images from our evening together. Cheerio!
Thanks so much to Max and Lydia for having us at their beautiful wedding this past weekend. I've had the privilege of getting to know these two over the past few years. They are genuinely kind, thoughtful, active in their community and passionate about each other. On their wedding day, Max sent Lydia flowers and he made sure that she received them BEFORE she put on her make up because he knew she would cry. I find that to be a thoughtful and heartfelt gesture that shows he knows her and genuinely cares about her. As a wedding photographer, you are always learning from your experiences at weddings. Many of those experiences result in technical lessons about camera gear, lighting, and time management. But the greatest lessons come from couples like Max and Lydia. These lessons have nothing to do with camera equipment but they have everything to do with true love and what it looks like in real life. Congratulations you two.
