On 16 June 2018, I received an e-mail from a soon-to-be bride interested in gathering photography information for her upcoming wedding. Within a few days of e-mailing each other back and forth, she and I set a date to meet at a local Starbucks. I asked my 2nd photographer and close friend, Lindsay, to join me who would also be participating in photographing 2019 weddings.
Sitting in Starbucks with our warm cups of jo on a rainy Saturday afternoon, Lindsay and I were all set up ready to meet Acacia, when she walked in with her two beautiful little angels! These lovely little ladies couldn't have shined any brighter with their big smiles, full of excitement for their mother.
During our consultation, these two little ladies sat perfectly well behaved, just giving their mother the time needed to help plan out one of their most important days together as a family!
Everyday of our lives, we are given the opportunities to show love, kindness and patience to those around us. The level of elegance and grace her daughters presented that day, spoke so much value to Acacia's core and the good person she is. I could not wait to meet the man she had chosen.
Which brings us to the engagement session....
Acacia, her family and Kristie Leigh Photography, LLC, had arranged to meet at Centennial Park in Howard County, Maryland with the beautiful fall sun present during the evening hours. When she approached us with her fiance, he was exactly as we expected! A true gentleman. He, too, presented patience, kindness and was gracious in every way.
You could feel their chemistry in the air. Their smiles are timeless. Their love is bold. And their lives together as a family, will be eternal happiness.
Acacia and Chris, we are so excited to be joining you and your family on your special day! Let's get this party started!
