A few months ago Alyssa and I were telling the story of how we met to some friends of ours over a cup of (you guessed it) coffee. We know our story pretty well. Alyssa has her funny parts that she describes, and I have mine…hers are more funny And at the end of our describing the beginning of our relationship up until now, our company simply responded “Wow, you have a great story.”
I guess it took us off guard. We’ve enjoyed our moments getting to this point in life, and looking back on all of it now, yes, we do have a great story; from our first date, to our engagement, wedding, anniversaries, and now our soon to be new arrival. But stories are better when you share them with people who are near and dear to your heart.
When we first met RJ Kern of Kern-Photo, we were at Caribou Coffee a few days after we got engaged to talk about our wedding photos and see if we’d be a good match as a photographer / couple on a wedding day. RJ was originally booked on our first choice, so we actually changed our wedding date to fit his schedule. Something just felt “right” about it.
So on a freezing day in February, we started our story in pictures in our Denver Engagement Session.
To our beautiful day where we became one, saying yes to a lifetime. Simply one of the best days of our lives!
To celebrating a year of marriage together in a portrait event that was the result of a good
bottle bottles of wine, food, and O’Brother Where Art Thou.
And now to our beautiful Maternity Session which has truly made me realize once again, what a beautiful and classy woman I have married.
To working together on a few projects, be it photos, house restoration, or even Landscaping in freaking insane heat and humidity.
All of these photos on this post were taken by RJ, and we wouldn’t haveit any other way. It is such a blessing as a creative professional to find someone else who shares the same unique vision and outlook on life that you do, who you can give an idea and absolute trust to. Alyssa and I have only been photographed by one person, and we are so thankful that RJ truly understands who we are and makes that a reality in our photographs.
But even more so, we are so happy to have RJ and Krista as dear friends in our life, which makes our story just that much better. RJ, thanks for being such a great, consistent, and giving friend to Alyssa and me. To many more glasses of wine, enjoying the simple things in life, and infectious enthusiasm that sets all our souls and world on fire.
