At first glance, it’s easy to see that Sara and Moses make the perfect couple. What comes at the second glance, the one you have to gave a couple of extra seconds to see, is that they are both simply amazing people. Their kindness and open hearts made doing this session one of my biggest blessings. I met them when I did a wedding for their friends, Jordan and Grant, at Barren Breeze on Labor Day weekend, and I’m beyond excited to photograph their wedding next May, at Glendale Gardens.
When I asked how they met, Sara said that Moses captured her attention the first instant that she saw him. Jordan, the bride from September that I mentioned earlier, introduced them a little over a year ago. And before you know it, Sara was more than happy to back down on a promise she made both herself and her family a few years ago when she moved from Louisville to Bowling Green to attend WKU. “I WILL be back,” she told them. “I’m only staying long enough to go to Western.” I think they’ve forgiven Moses already. And who wouldn’t?? I couldn’t get over his thoughtfulness and watching how he treats his future wife is what any family would want for their daughter.
I was all in when Sara suggested the Baker Arboretum & Downing Museum as the location for their engagement session last Friday. The ONLY thing that could have topped it off would have been just a tad of sunshine. Mother Nature did not agree, but we still had the best time. That location is incredibly beautiful, and I’m beyond thrilled at what we were able to get. I appreciated that both Moses and Sara trusted me and did anything I asked without hesitation. And it’s probably a good thing we were aiming for golden hour (which of course didn’t happen) or they would have 500 images in their gallery. We literally ran out of light. But what made my night was Moses telling me that he doesn’t like doing pictures, but he was not miserable doing this session. Of course, he did have his lovely lady at his side. That might have made it better.
Sara and Moses, I’m so thankful that we met, and even more that YOU met. I feel like I’ve already known you forever, and I know you are meant to be together. Your joy and fun personalities were refreshing to me, and I can’t wait to see what your future holds. May your mountain tops be many and your valleys few. Love and blessings, Pat
