As a professional photographer, I get the privilege of meeting so many people through my work. This goes far beyond just the couples I work with. I often times get to know their wedding party well, too. Katie has been a bridesmaid in several of the weddings I’ve photographed – going back to the very start of my business. From the moment I met her, I knew she was my people!
Katie has an incredible personality and every time I saw her at a wedding she would tell me that one day I’d be photographing hers. Every photographer is used to hearing compliments like this – but we know not every person will actually follow up. However, not every person is Katie.
As soon as Katie got engaged, I got an email from her — and it literally made my day! I am over-the-moon happy for her and Jenna and I cannot wait to shoot their wedding.
Thomas Riley Wilderness Park Engagement
I hadn’t met Jenna before their engagement, but I knew she must be something special since Katie is so amazing. These two make a perfect pair and if you spend any amount of time around them, it’s clear their bond is very strong.
During this Thomas Riley Wilderness Park engagement session, Jenna and Katie laughed and joked the entire time. They have the best personalities and outlook on life. This is a couple who loves out loud and doesn’t take a single day for granted.
If I’m being honest, the hour spent with them was such a refreshing and soul-fulfilling one. We should all look to Jenna and Katie as an example of how to love and be loved. If we all embraced just a little bit of this mindset – we’d be a much happier world.
