Hey friends! Welcome to the B & B blog. We are Bret and Brandie, a soon-to-be husband and wife photo team based in the Midwest. Here you will find our latest work, favorite love stories, and recent adventures. Grab some coffee, snuggle up, and enjoy!
We are so thrilled to share this engagement session with you today and we cannot wait for Katie & Bobby to tie the knot in 2018. When Katie first reached out to us earlier this year about possibly being her and Bobby’s wedding photographers, we immediately hit it off. Have you ever met someone that you instantaneously clicked with like you’ve known them forever? That was me (Brandie) and Katie – instant BFFs. We set up a coffee date at Lucid Coffee Bar in downtown Newburgh, Indiana with Katie & Bobby. These meetings typically take 30-45 minutes to get to know our potential clients. Well, we instantly hit it off with these two and before we knew it, our 30 minute chat turned into TWO HOURS of giggling!
Fast forward a couple months and Katie & Bobby are busy planning their upcoming engagement session with us. One of the perks of our job is that we get to be very hands-on with our brides and grooms as they plan out their sessions. Throughout our career we have learned that wedding planning and all it entails can be very stressful. We try our best to make the process as painless as possible by sending out a detailed Style Guide for engagement sessions. We really want our clients to know that we are here to help in any way possible. I (Brandie) had the opportunity to help Katie prepare for her session. I adored getting texts and pictures from Katie while she picked out and tried on outfits. It really helped me to make these sessions as personalized as possible. It may have also helped that Katie has a FABULOUS sense of style. Her outfit choices were hit out of the park!
Katie & Bobby’s sweet engagement session started off in downtown Owensboro, Kentucky at the fire station. We would first and foremost like to thank Bobby for doing what he does – going above and beyond to protect his community! It was truly an honor to get to shoot at the station and we were even able to get a couple shots with one of the trucks – how cool is that?! We loved getting to shoot some shots with Bobby in his full gear. With these photos we really tried to capture and bring out Katie & Bobby’s warm and whimsical personalities. Katie chose the PERFECT dress for these shots as her white, stylish dress really popped on the red of the firetruck.
Have you ever just looked at two people and you just know that they were meant to be? Have you ever seen two people that fit together too perfectly not to be together? Katie & Bobby complement each other so well and we fully made this realization during their sunset session at the Western Kentucky Botanical Gardens. Once there on the grounds, we learned that Katie is totally a cat person! A sweet, stray kitty (don’t tell Carson!) was sneaking through the property and instantly became besties with Katie. Because of Katie, we had a furry little companion for the rest of the session! Katie started out in the most exquisite sheer, blush dress that complemented Bobby’s outfit perfect. When we said Katie had style, we weren’t lying! Toward the end of the night, she changed into the most adorable high-low navy floral dress. It was the perfect piece as they danced and twirled through the flowers ending this perfect session under the sunset.
If you’ve never had the opportunity to venture out to the Western Kentucky Botanical Gardens, what are you waiting for?! To say that there are millions of gorgeous flowers and blossoms there would be an understatement. This property was absolutely magnificent – we’ve never seen anything like it! We were lucky enough to get to explore the grounds after hours and in a magical place like the Botanical Gardens, it wasn’t very hard to find the perfect spot for some sweet, romantic shots. We are so incredibly blessed with some of the best clients. Our hearts are so joyful as we sit back and think about sessions like Katie & Bobby’s. Watching these two giggle and cuddle in together is what our dreams are made of – the definition of true love. We cannot wait to see them say ““I do” next year!
