Well, fast forward several years, and I got the most exciting email from her!!! She had found her soulmate and was GETTING MARRIED!! I’ve been looking forward to her engagement session ever since she booked, because I knew that it was going to be so much fun, and I was right!! I loved seeing her so happy and it didn’t take long for me to realize that Derek was made for her!!
Derek is so personable and kind. When Kerri would get excited and squeal about the fact that HER engagement session was actually happening, he would smile at her and pull her close for a hug. He loves her joy, and the more time I spent with them, the more I could see just how perfectly matched these two are!
Michael and I drove up to New York one evening, spent the night, and then photographed their sunrise shoot the very next morning! We made the call to do a sunrise shoot the day before, because we wanted to avoid the rain! Kerri is a photographer herself and so she wanted to have that glowy light, and sunrise was our only opportunity! We had to avoid the rain that was going to set in later that evening, and I’m so glad that we did because it was PERFECT!!!!
Also, at 5:40am I got a text that said “We built a teepee in a field!”!! Derek and Kerri handmade this beautiful teepee and used a lighting app to make sure it was positioned correctly for the best light in the field! She’s such a photographer! :) I hope you enjoy my favorites and get excited for their wedding!!! It’s coming this fall!!
