Oh what can I say about Britt? I met her in college (Rock Chalk, KU!) when we both lived in the same honor's dorm, Douthart. I remember that even then, she had a strong sense of who she was and was always so positive. Need to clean the kitchen as your assigned job for the week? Britt would definitely keep you company!! Laughing with friends in the TV room? Britt was in to smile right along with you! I left the hall after my sophomore year, but luckily through the world of facebook, we were able to follow each other's goings-on and we both actually ended up going to the same photography workshop! We reconnected when I asked her to second shoot one of my very first weddings with Erin Evangeline Photography many years ago, and she supported me through a very hot Kansas day and captured images that the bride and groom LOVED.
I was SO EXCITED when she contacted me after getting engaged last year. When she couldn't find a photographer that she loved in Wichita for her engagement session, I had to head out to Kansas on my only open weekend this spring to meet Ben, her fiance, and capture their connection. On a very cloudy day, we headed to downtown Wichita to finally put Britt in front of the camera instead of behind it.
Ben and Britt have been together for nine years, and their ease together and the love between them was evident in every second of the session. Ben is full of jokes, and I think the only times that the laughter stopped were when they were talking about how much they love each other and how excited they are to be married. I cannot wait for May, you guys!! Enjoy these sneak peeks!
When you have two Wichita Natives, you HAVE to get a photo with the flag!!
Can you believe that this park is right in the center of Wichita?!?! I was worried we wouldn't have any color because spring hadn't exactly sprung in Kansas, but there were so many beautiful locations and we found some spring anyway. I can't wait to go back in May for wedding photos, it's going to be gorgeous!!
That RING!!! Seriously might be my favorite engagement ring (except for mine of course) EVER! Emerald cut three diamond BRILLIANCE!!
Oh I just love your love. Britt, thanks so much for working out timelines so that we could make this session work, and Ben, thanks so much for showing up for your love and playing along with my silly games. It was 100% worth it.
