I remember our initial meeting with Caitlin & Mike last year before they booked us, and Caitlin was very excited for pretty trees for their engagement photos. Right away, I knew the perfect place to get Caitlin the look she so desired – Washington Oaks! The day has come and Caitlin got her tree!! It was great to finally meet them for real this time! We actually ran into them at a restaurant in Disney Springs a few weeks ago, but that 4 second hug hello doesn’t count!
The weather was PERFECT! The day before, it had poured, and I was so worried we would have to reschedule, but the sun came out and brought a little bit of a breeze, which is the perfect Florida weather. Caitlin & Mike came READY and even did a little at-home photo shoot to get my opinion on their outfits. If you’re wondering how to quickly become some of my favorite people – this is how! I LOVE being able to give outfit advice! Outfit choice can truly make or break your images, so I am so happy when I get to help with that!
Not only that, they did such a good job of following directions! Some couples get nervous when it comes to posing, but these two caught on super quick! They were truly up for anything – from helping me find the perfect rose for a ring shot, to letting me use her dress for a few more ring shots. Even walking what felt like a mile in soft sand to the rocks on the beach – when I asked if they were up for some beach photos, Mike was barefoot and had his pant legs were rolled up in no time We wound up getting kicked off the beach within minutes of being there, but it was worth it!
When I asked Caitlin & Mike how they met and started dating, she told me that after meeting a few times, Mike threw a can of Pringles at her and told her she wouldn’t be a “single Pringle” much longer. Talk about a pick up line!! I really think they need Pringle favors at the wedding haha.
These two are incredible people, and they have already made me feel like a friend rather than a wedding vendor. Caitlin is the bride that participates in all my lame Instagram polls and replies to all my stories (you the real MVP ♥️ ). I had SO much fun (minus the bug bites haha) and we are SOOO looking forward to your wedding this November!!!! (Especially for Mike’s watch photos )
