Nathan and I worked together at Samford when I was photographing for them our first two years in Birmingham. He was the “video guy” and Caroline and I were the “photo people” – so we all spent plenty of time at every Samford event you could imagine! I was already booked for Nathan’s wedding, but I was so glad to get to do this after session for them! Their story is just precious.
It was a fairy tale really. Nathan runs a Non-Profit video company and shoot videos for so many fabulous ministries in Birmingham and beyond. His work takes him to almost every continent each year. While on one of his trips, he had a particularly lovely translator and thought it might be fun to get to know her a little better after the trip. Insert hours of emails, texts, phone calls, skypes, and one or two in person visits – and these two were ready to be together, on the same continent, forever. After way too much red tape and lots of waiting to be able to bring Flori here legally, they were married on a hot day in May and chose to have an after-session with me on an even hotter day in June ; )
It’s always fun being able to do whatever you want in your wedding dress – especially after the big day is over. And having a session so close to the actual date keeps the magic in it ; ) Thanks y’all for enduring the heat for some sweet couple photos!
