One of the best parts of being a Louisville Wedding Photographer is getting to know new people and hearing about their lives and stories. Brittany and Mark have a pretty cool story. I don't necessarily mean their love story. That one is pretty classic... boy likes girl, girl ignores boy, eventually he wins her over, she falls in love and says yes. That's a story we've heard before, actually it's quite similar to my relationship with Alex.
For Brittany, she wasn't sure she would get to find the love of her life, call her friends excited after a proposal, say yes to the dress, or have her dream wedding. She has fought a battle with her health and her doctors were not sure how her story would turn out.
The day of our engagement session, she texted me saying, "I just wanted to tell you that I met with my oncologist yesterday for my normal remission screening and she was asking about our weekend plans. My oncologist was so happy for us because when I first found out I had cancer, they didn't expect me to live a year let alone go into and stay in remission. So engagement photos and getting married are extra special because I never thought I would be my own 'every girl's dream.' Very happy you will get to capture all of this with us!"
I think that is pretty amazing. What a privilege we have to capture Brittany and Mark and some of the most special moments they will celebrate in their lives together!
While the two looked great in their first outfit, they opted for a more natural casual look for the second location. This time it really showed their true personalities. Brittany and Mark are huge football fans. Brittany of the Green Bay Packers, and Mark of the Arizona Cardinals. How they ended up in Colts territory I have no idea! Alex, my husband, was proud because he is from Wisconsin and was feeling a little home state pride. So, with our fan gear in tow we headed to the waterfront park to catch the sunset.
