I’m not sure what we exactly we talked about that day. About our dogs, probably, and weird wedding traditions, about how Corey likes to pick Nina up just because he can, and math jokes may have featured in there somewhere. What I do know is that we laughed throughout the entire session. These two are just so much fun I can’t even explain, and we have a goofy sense of humor in common. There was lots of Corey picking Nina up & then everyone climbed on things & then Corey picked Nina up some more. Um. They’re kind of adorable. Also, Corey took me to some secret spots on the CMU campus that I’ve never been to before- including rooftop succulent gardens. :) They’re getting married this fall at the Wintergarden at PPG Place.
Also, as a side note- I first met Nina way-back-when, at a wedding I photographed several years ago. Can just I tell you, I love working with referrals from brides? We try to stay in touch, but in this business, I really only get to work with a client once (twice if you count the engagement sessions), unless I do additional portraits later. Which is sad, because my clients? Are so much fun. It’s the best thing in the world when I get to work with friends or family of a couple I’ve already shot for. It’s like reading an epilogue about your favorite characters, or running into old friends from college. So yes, lots of love to Scott & Emily for sending Nina and Corey to me, and to all the other couples that have done the same. <3 Friends of friends are the best thing ever.
