KORTNEY + MATT | Love Story

We met Kortney last fall when photographing her friend Katie’s wedding.  She was Katie’s personal assistant so we spent pretty much all day with Kortney.  She was our go to girl that day, and she was a photographer’s dream! She was so organized!  {Little tip for all you brides out there, have a close friend or family member be your personal assistant on your wedding day.  Its a great resource to have them there to do anything for you and finish any details. As photographers we LOVE personal assistants because they are also there to help be sure people are where they need to be for pictures!} When Kortney reached out to us this winter about photographing her wedding we were so excited to hear from her and honored that she would want us there for her special day.  This weekend we met up with her and her fiance Matt for engagement pictures.  It was a bit chilly for a spring day but they were troopers and we were able to capture some beautiful spring photos!  And we can’t forget to mention the fun family photos at the end with Keagan, their puppy Charlie even made a guest appearance.
Kortney & Matt: We are looking forward to being a part of your special day this fall.  We love shooting in new locations and are excited to venture south for your big day!
