Jarred and Valerie
These are my kind of people. When we met up to meet for the first time, they suggested that it be over breakfast. Any time I get to drink coffee, eat donuts and other exorbitant amount of breakfast food is the best time. Rather than jumping right into wedding talk, we instead casually talked about Philly (a place where we all hale from in some sort of way) and some of our favorite bands. I was SO PLEASED that they not only asked me to shoot their engagement pictures but also their wedding.
Although we had to jump through some weather and animal emergency hoops to get this shoot on the calendar, it was so much fun to spend an evening with them. I not only got to meet their big cat Carmelo and their little dog with a BIG personality Quincy, but we got to explore downtown Durham’s more hidden cracks and corners, all the while talking very concert experiences and our disdain for Crossfit.
These two are pretty great. Their kindness, friendship, and love reaches beyond just the two of them and invites others in. Can’t wait for the wedding guys.
