Bailey and I met randomly met through the wedding industry and it’s crazy to me to think that she’s been a close friend for like three years now! She was working at Blush Bridal Boutique in Fort Wayne and I wanted to meet with them about setting up a styled shoot (that we never even did haha!) but we instantly connected as creatives and both lovers of BEAUTIFUL wedding things! Bailey was the coordinator for my wedding day (which she no longer does) but having her there was CRUCIAL in allowing me to enjoy my day freely. She is truly such a sweet and talented woman and a dear friend! I am SO honored to be able to return the favor for HER wedding!

Bailey and I have been talking about her wedding for a while now, probably since we set up this little tablescape photo shoot at her house one humid Spring afternoon. She truly has such an eye and we’ve always talked about it just being through-the-roof gorgeous with so many details (or being a destination elopement haha — she could never decide) but she always said I would be there to shoot it, which is always such an honor to hear. On Tuesday, as we were leaving, she told me she booked Reflect Films, a videographer couple that I’m friends-of-a-friend with, and how she got their full-out, premier package because she wants EVERY little detail captured!! Talk about client goals. The details are so important to me and I love that it’s important to my couples, too!

Of all the years I’ve known Bailey, this is my first time meeting Connor. That’s right… never met him. Because he’s ALWAYS been busy with the military or med school (I got me another future doctor here!). It was so nice to finally meet him and get him warmed up to the camera. They both were naturals and I loved getting to see them interact with each other. They both have a silly side and that’s one of my favorite attributes to the CRP couples!

I can’t wait for their wedding this October! But until then, enjoy my favorites of their Roanoke engagement session!
