This morning, as the rain pounded against the windows of my dark room, I sat with a book in my hands, curled around pillows atop my bed and sighed as I thought about the two people sleeping on the other side of the house. With Josh on the couch and Katie in the spare bedroom the house was quiet and peaceful. And images from the night before played in my head like a black and white movie.
It was the first time I’d met them, in real life. For years, I’ve had heroes in the industry. People I looked up to. And Josh Newton is one of them. So imagine my excitement when he told me that he and Katie were coming through Arkansas on their trip across the country and that they’d be stopping by the farm and spending some time with me.
From the moment they walked through the door, I fell even more in love with them. Instantly. I can’t imagine I could meet two nicer people. Or two people better for one another.
“I just want one photo. Right over there. Is that cool?”
That’s what he asked me. And immediately my fingers went numb.
An industry hero of mine asked me to take their photo. I was nervous. Not gonna lie. But as we set out together on a walk around the farm, the nerves subsided and I so enjoyed capturing their love.
Josh and Katie, I can’t thank you enough for taking time out of your trip to see me. I so enjoyed meeting you and spending time with you and I can’t wait to see you both again. I miss you already.
And I’m so honored to have the opportunity to capture your love.
I thought it’d be fun to have an all black and white post.These images–they make my heart happy.
