After getting to know the two of them a little bit better through my pre-engagement questionnaire that I send to my couples, I learned that Chase knew the owners of this cute little farm estate on Courthouse Road down the road from where I went to high school! I had always passed the farm driving to and from work when I was younger and always thought to myself that I wanted to explore it someday. I actually had been to the grounds with another couple, Kristin & Will, a long time ago because they knew the previous owners who had passed away! Regardless, the land is beautiful and I would shoot there all the time if I could. I mean, wouldn’t you?! Just look at that lighting!
Believe it or not, Katee and Tyler were one of the first #jesscouples ever from a while ago! I absolutely love getting to photograph these two and their kiddos every year because it feels like such a tradition. It’s also extremely sweet and I feel honored that I get to photograph them and watch their family grow. How cool is it that their family has grown right alongside my business? I first met Katee when I was working with another photographer to do “boudoir marathons”. We have decided to move away from that part of our businesses, but it was still a fun time! And we’re still the best of friends. She’s actually my maid of honor in my wedding this October. 🙂
