Kim & Grant. I am a big fan of Kim & Grant. I still remember the first time we met up for drinks in Chicago to talk more about their wedding and get to know each other. We talked about their families, how they met, their dreams for their life together as husband and wife. I loved them right away! You'd be hard pressed to find more easy-going, kind hearted people. Except for maybe the couple they went on to recommended me to - Erin & Jim! Good people find good people in this world. I'm so grateful when amazing couples recommend me to their wonderful friends!
Back to Kim & Grant - when they met me for their engagement session it was a very chilly spring day. They never complained and made it a fun day in spite of the chill. They laughed together and were just so at ease with each other. I couldn't wait to shoot their wedding! Finally the day came and it was perfect, a gorgeous day filled with smiling faces. We made so many beautiful images that day. I can't tell you how blessed I feel to have this as my passion and my profession. It gives me joy to know these images will be cherished by their family for decades. Here are some of my favorites from the day...
This one. There are not enough heart-eye emojis in the world to convey how much I love this one!
