Emma & Brandon drove from Ohio to scout out some wedding venues and had me capture their engagement photos while they were visiting! As soon as they walked up, a dog was running loose, so I threw my camera down and went chasing it (naturally). After the dog was safe and back with its’ owners, I introduced myself. Within just a few seconds, Emma looks down at my insulin pump (if you didn’t know already, I am a Type 1 Diabetic and have been for over 17 years) and says, “are you a Diabetic?”, and raises her shirt to show me her dexcom sensor! Automatically we connect, because if you are a Type 1 Diabetic and see each other in public, you are automatically best friends (if you didn’t know that, now you know!)
After we talked a while about our dead pancreases, we actually began shooting at Morrow’s Meadows! These two were so naturally in love, I asked them about how they met and they told me they met on Bumble (a dating app). She told me that on Bumble, the girl has to reach out to the guy, so she made the first move. I told her about how my boyfriend and I met, and how I walked up to him and shook his hand and said, “Hi, I’m Kyla, what’s your name?” I had such blast talking with these two and getting to know them and capturing their love for one another. They were so cuddly and cute while bumping hips and almost knocking each other over, cuddling on a log and telling their own inside jokes to make each other laugh.
