Ohh happy : )
I’m sometimes accused of playing favorites with clients, but life isn’t fair and not everyone’s a winner and Tori + Aaron are pretty much awesome.
She’s actually a darling friend of mine, and is the loveliness behind Marvelous Things Photography in Indiana. We first met online through our friend Micah, (hi!) who actually, we’d both met online as well. Can’t imagine a sketchier way to start a friendship but we met last year when we photographed Micah’s wedding together, and we’ve been kindreds to the nth ever since.
(Who else could put up with my driving?)
Last time she was visiting Aaron in Richmond I drove down for this shoot, and the three of us met for lunch to discuss the all-official details. (Like whether baby carrots or paper airplanes would be more suitable for guests to chuck as they left the reception.) It was a happy little surreal moment when we realized we were at the same place (and almost exactly a year to the date) that she and I had gone to after a wedding, where she’d first mentioned This Guyyyy who was a good friend and fun and cool and basically perfect, but she just didn’t know how he felt.
A couple days later he asked her out, and their years of friendship turned into something marvelous.
Hanging out with them is hilarious. Sarcasm is their love language and they couldn’t be more adorable together even if a rose ceremony depended on it. (…or at least it looks that way after I was able to photoshop the happiness in.)
It was so fun to do their engagement shoot and of course I’m thrillled for their wedding, but I mostly can’t wait till she moves to my state already : )
