Ok…so this post got ginormous. Sometimes when I get going on my “favorites” from a session, I just get carried away. It’s rare to come across such awesome people as Katie and Brent. Not only are they a gorgeous couple, they are just incredibly awesome people in general.
I met them at Cedarville and we never really hung out much. Brent helped me with my horrid spanish class in May term that I was failing and Katie mostly just lived across the hall from me. It wasn’t until after college that I got to know them a little better. They live in Cincinnati but moved to Grand Cayman a couple years ago for Brent’s work. He is an accountant..does things with numbers and accounts…you know… haha. Katie works for herself designing albums and is a wiz with InDesign. She has a very peaceful personality and is the kind of person that just makes you glad you know them. I would certainly like to be more like her in a lot of ways and I think surrounding yourself with people like that is one of the best things you can do in life. Brent is great too :) They make so much sense together and I just love shooting couples like that.
When katie told me that a lot her friends wanted to learn how to use their camera’s better and suggested that we might be able to plan a small, beginners workshop out there I was all about it. I have not had a legit vacation in years so I figured we might as well kill two birds with one stone. I’ll post more about the workshop later but it wasn’t anything fancy pants, just the basics of using a camera for the most part.
They were nice enough to let me stay at their place for a week. I did the workshop right when I got there and just did nothing the rest of the time. Doing nothing was remarkable. They asked what I wanted to do while I was there and I didn’t have a good answer other than relax but being me, I wasn’t sure what that even meant. Katie was a pro at teaching me the ways of taking it easy. We had a great time and I’m just so grateful to have had the opportunity to take a vacation this year.
Anyways, as a thank you for being such great hosts, I did a super awesome session for them. I was also pretty excited about shooting there as well. It was a really long session which is why there are an astronomical amount of photos, but I’m so happy with how it all came out.
