On the “Other” Side…

I have been looking forward to getting my own engagement pictures done for sooooooo longggggg now, that I almost psyched myself out when it came time for them, can you believe it? Trying to figure out what to wear, where to go, and what we wanted to portray in them almost threw me for a loop. A loop of CRAZY. But thankfully I’m engaged to the most amazing guy ever, and he knows how to love me back on track. And the best part? I’m part of a team now. So, Zak started brainstorming and shared some ideas he had been excited about… music is very much part of who he is and photography is very much a part of me… so we thought it would be fun to use elements of each to incorporate into our shoot. Also, its no secret how much Zak likes Johnny Cash. We were going through his CD collection and came across the “Carryin’ On With Johnny Cash and June Carter” album and thought it would be perfect for us to recreate their CD cover. Sweet!

Oh and graffiti. We must have graffiti in there somewhere.

So who does a photographer choose to shoot their own wedding and engagement pictures?? If you know me personally, you know that I have a handful of photographer friends that I use to assist me and I’m really picky with who I bring along… they are the type of person I would trust to shoot my own wedding. No one else will do. I have had John Woods to work with over the last couple years and not only is he an awesome person and friend, but he has an incredible eye, is personable and easy to connect with, has a huge heart that comes through in his photography, and really gives his all in every shoot. He just really loves what he does and its easy to know that this is the type of person who was created by God to make amazing pictures. So we chose John even before we got engaged. And we feel he seriously knocked it out of the park and we couldn’t be more stoked on these!! I’m just so so so excited to share these with you…

Here is our Johnny Cash and June Carter re-creation shot…

We couldn’t be more thankful to have John to have captured these for us! What an incredible journey it’s been so far. Here’s a fun fact: Zak and I dated for 3 months and 23 days when we got engaged. Sounds short, I know, but I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life. People always told me that when you know, you know… and wow.

I know.
