Mallory and I met through a mutual friend when I was a senior and high school and she was a junior, but we got close when I was finishing my freshman year at Northern Kentucky University, and she was graduating from high school. We both started working for a local optometrist (at one point I thought I wanted to go into the medical field, crazy right?), and spent two years working together, discovering Pinterest for the first time, and swapping nail polish colors. We even took a road trip together down to Atlanta for one of our coworker's wedding. We always talked about what kind of guys we would end up with, and she always knew that she'd marry a country boy.
I think she found that country boy, and a little bit more, in Daniel.
When Mallory asked me if I'd be interested in photographing her wedding, I was so excited. Some people think wedding vendor friends would prefer to be guests at their wedding, but not me. As a wedding photographer, I am so blessed to be an intimate part of wedding days. Why wouldn't I want that same privilege for one of my friends?
I met Daniel for the first time at his and Mallory's engagement session, and I have to say, I was pretty impressed. He's not just a country boy, he's a man. He's incredibly smart, and it was clear after spending some time talking with him that he's the kind of person who makes things happen, who figures out what he wants and goes for it, and that makes me so happy for Mallory.
Mallory chose Dirr Nurseries right outside of Cincinnati for their engagement session because she wanted a Christmas tree engagement session, how fun is that?
Daniel and Mallory, I'm so happy the two of you found each other, and I am so excited to photograph your January wedding.
