SUMMERSVILLE LAKE, WEST VIRGINIA ENGAGEMENT SESSION, COLUMBUS OHIO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS
I remember Elle coming home and gushing about the newest couple...Courtney and Quentin. "You all are going to love them." "She is gorgeous, he's so funny." "I can't wait for you both to meet them." "Their wedding is going to be a blast." "They want to do a rock climbing engagement session." And the list goes on and on. We really wanted to meet them...and may have creeped on them on social media sites. We could not be more excited they wanted to shoot on a cliff!!!! I mean come on. Dreams do come true.
So, we all met Quentin first. He decided to drop by the house instead of sending something to us in the mail. A little old school and kind of shocking to open the door to this bearded man wearing a dinosaur t-shirt (and he wasn't super clean...haha but that's kind of our thing). Every time I do see him he normally says, "I'm not the cleanest so I'm just gonna high five you guys." To me that's a great first impression!!!
I set it all up and we planned our shoot for Father's day. Because it was fathers day, we decided to bring the kids and Courtney and Quentin couldn't be happier. They are the type of go with the flow couple that you can't help wanting to be around all the time. And their smiles really are infectious.
The day finally came!!! They pulled into our driveway with their friends and we hit the road. It was a three-four hour drive but we had a great time jamming to the radio and laughing. We were so excited to finally arrive!!!
ROCK CLIMBING ENGAGEMENT SESSION
Courtney and Quentin got into their "nice" clothes and we headed to the top of a cliff overlooking beautiful Summersville Lake. The rest of the crew got out their hammocks, ran to the water, and basically had a blast while we took some amazing photos of these two love birds.
Turns out Quentin can sure make Courtney laugh and it was PERFECT. And Quentin calls me a goofball... Who is he kidding?
Courtney is breathtakingly beautiful!!!
Now things get a little more exciting...Elle got strapped up and hung off a cliff! The coolest part was all the help we got from a stranger (Dan) just wanting to help us get some cool photos. They climbed down to this ledge and rocked out their shoot. Ahhhhhh!!!! I love when our clients are rockstars.
Once we finished on the cliff and ledge we headed to the water. So remember when I said they were rockstars let me tell you a secret...Courtney is afraid of water. The next part will shock you. She jumped in, climbed a wall, and jumped in again!! She was a champ and did a killer job. She even looked cute holding her nose while they jumped in together.
By the end of the day, I felt like we were all best friends. We had a lot of crazy experiences together. I am overjoyed this amazing couple invited us on such an awesome adventure...but this is only the beginning.
We are headed to this wedding TODAY!!! Ahhhh! The day is finally here. They are getting MARRIED!! The team cannot be more excited to visit the little farm in Mt. Sterling, with baby goats, for an epic day! See you both soon!
