Natalie’s family went to church with my parents for years so I’ve met her and her family years ago. I was very excited and flattered when I got the call from her and she decided to let me be a part of her wedding. I have no doubt that it will be a fun one.
Natalie and Ryan met and started dating in high school. They’ve been together for years. They aren’t in the area much so we were limited on dates for their engagement session. We had it scheduled for a day in the fall and it had rained a ton the day before and was really overcast so we decided to reschedule for the next day they had available which was this past weekend in December. So keeping in mind that the temperature was in the 40s look at how great these two did at making it seem like it was just any other warm engagement session. I was very impressed. I know that especially Natalie had to be freezing! I was wearing about 3 layers myself so I can’t imagine.
We did their session in the Bolivar area where they went to school, met and spent the early parts of their relationship. The Luez Theater in Bolivar TN was somewhere that Natalie and Ryan spent a lot of time so we got a few pictures outside the theater. They are doing renovations to it and I can’t wait to see what it looks like when it is finished. I LOVE when they renovate old theaters. Adam, my husband, used to work at The Sideline in Martin TN and they work out of the old theater and have renovated the sign outside and it looks amazing. If you scroll through my post of Katie & Matt’s wedding you will see where we used it for a few pictures.
Natalie & Ryan were great to work with and I can’t wait for the wedding! Congratulations you two.
