Meet Kasey & Mike. When we were first discussing their October wedding they were living in Louisiana. Currently they live in Texas and they will likely be in Colorado by the time of their wedding. So naturally they decided to have their wedding in Tennessee. Why? Well why not?! This venue is absolutely gorgeous and provides such amazing luxuries for the day of the wedding. I can't wait for October to get here!
Not only have Kasey & Mike moved all over but their families are from different states as well. Most of Kasey's family lives in New Jersey where Mike's family lives mainly in Pennsylvania. One other random fact about Mike's family, is that I'm part of it! Mike's mom and my dad are brother and sister so he's my cousin. My dad worked a lot, being in the military, while I was growing up and Mike's dad isn't a big fan of traveling so we didn't get to see each other much. It was really great to really get to know them as a couple the past few months.
Mike may have scared me a little bit because he kept telling me that they were not very creative at all and could potentially be super awkward in photos. Well clearly, he lied!!
Kasey is absolutely gorgeous and had the perfect expressions the entire shoot. & Mike was very cooperative, even helping pose Kasey for a shot.
The 6.5 hour drive was well worth it to be able to visit this venue before the wedding. There are so many unique spots on the property that we were able to use for the engagement photos. I am super excited to see how the venue looks when it is green and sunny!
You would never guess that it was actually freezing temperatures the day of the shoot. Kasey & Mike braved the cold like champs.
The vintage truck on the property was the perfect pairing to the couple's camo outfit. They really came to life in these shots. Mike is actually a dairy nutritionist and seemed very in his element with a hat, camo and boots.
Kasey even braved bare feet to get the shot below and it turned out to be one of my favorites!
Knowing that Kasey is a personal trainer and in excellent shape I thought I would challenge her with a photo I have been dying to try. After only a few tries, she got it right on the money! How adorable are they?!
Thank you both for letting me be part of your big day and I cannot wait 7 months and 5 days until your wedding.
