Meet Meg & Baron
I photographed the cutest Rehearsal Dinner the other day and just have to share. My photography friend Meagan contacted me that her brother-in-law Baron was getting married and she was attending as a guest! Her mother-in-law Tracee was looking for someone to capture this special time in their lives. From the moment I stepped in the room it was like I was part of the family! Here’s Meg & Baron’s sweet love story:
So the car ride to the restaurant was a little quiet, just getting awkwardness out of the way I guess. We got to In The Raw and it was really busy and we had a wait so we stood among a crowd, then at the bar, talking about work. It’s funny to think back now, because for several hours during the first date I thought Baron hated me. Like, I wasn’t what he expected, he’s just being nice and following through with dinner. It wasn’t until a little later that I realized he liked me. That occurred to me when he dropped me off at home and we stayed talking in his truck for half an hour. Then we played trivia crack and watched Big Bang Theory until he had to go home. When he left, it was with plans to hang out again and I was absolutely smitten.
I like to think we really excelled at the whole long distance relationship thing. I mean, it’s definitely better to be in shorter distance but for our circumstances pre-March, we did a pretty fantastic job. We managed, over the entire course of our relationship, to spend at least PART of every single weekend together. We talked on the phone every night and at least for the last half of it called each other on our ways to work every morning. The weekdays were tough, but the weekends were always like mini-vacations. Whether I was in OKC or Baron was in Tulsa, we made the most of our time together. Movies, football games, golfing, zoo/aquarium adventures, it was always fun and always memory-making. I loved our dating days!
Newly engaged? I LOVE photographing love and capturing the details that make a couple unique! Contact me for information on engagement and wedding packages. I can’t wait to meet you!
