Where do I begin?
Alexah and I are buddies from high school. She’s hilarious but like in a sarcastic, dry way that is awesome (think The Office). She is also the first person to ask me to do their wedding last year.
And it came out of no where. I think I wouldn’t be where I am without them asking me, because it gave me the confidence and push I needed to let people know that I want to get into weddings.
Videochatted with Alexa + Brad to confirm some businessy stuff for weddings when I got to hear a little bit of their story! Alexah was dating someone else when she met Brad and they became friends. Things obviously didn’t workout with the other guy (which is okay, we like Brad), and that’s when Brad swooped in and the rest is history! Seriously love their story.
When I met up with Alexah + Brad for their engagement sesh, I was so nervous! They were my first engagement session, my first wedding clients! And I felt like I was going to do a TERRIBLE job. I didn’t even realize until the session was HALF WAY THROUGH that I wasn’t even in manual mode! (which meant I was getting the quality of photos that I wanted).
But once I went manual and calmed down, I realized: I got this. ONLY because Alexah + Brad were SUCH naturals behind the camera. They knew to be cute and be themselves.
THEN comes my favorite part! Their second outfits incorporated LIGHTSABERS! Honestly, that whole time we were left thinking “what the heck do we even do with these?” It turned out great. I even made a little story with their pictures:
A beautiful jedi crosses paths with a charming sith. They were commanded to kill the other. They tried. But she found herself smitten. Then they fell in love.
Cheesy? I know.
