I can always tell how much a couple love each other by how well they fake-dance together…
It’s always a bit nerve-wracking to get in front of the camera, especially when you’ve never met the person photographing you before and aren’t quite sure what to expect. (I, on the other hand, was super pumped to do a shoot in the rain, and knew that Katie and Nathan had some adventure in their blood based on some fun surfing photos I’d seen of the two of them, and the fact that they’re having their wedding on a beach down south!)
Katie and Nathan love to travel, sip coffee at the same cafe where they had their first date, are insanely sweet with their adorable puppy Parlee, and though I’m sure Nathan will deny it, love to dance together (you can scroll down and see for yourself!). It was very rare that I had to prompt them to move closer, hold on longer, or to look at each other with nothing but love. Despite wet clothes and having to listen to my rambunctious laughter for a couple hours, they melted into one another and had a great time watching the rain fall, sprinting across the grass, and practicing their best fake-dance moves that turned into some real, absolutely beautiful dancing.
I’m so beyond excited for their May wedding, and can’t wait to congratulate them when they finally tie the knot.
Congrats Katie and Nathan!
