Sharon + Nick = Engaged!

I met with Sharon some time last year to talk about her and Nick’s wedding. We were wrapping up our meeting and she told me she had just one more question for me.

“How do you feel about the font Comic Sans?” she asked.

“I hate it with a fiery passion,” I answered.

“Okay, good. Then we can be friends.”

I knew Sharon was right: we’d get along just fine. And so I was thrilled when she told me I was the photographer they chose for their wedding day. And I can take comfort in the fact that there will be absolutely zero threat of Comic Sans rearing its ugly head all day. ;)

When I found out Sharon and Nick adore cooking together and wanted to do a cooking themed engagement session, I was beyond excited. As an avid Food Network watcher and lover of all things food, I immediately saw the potential of telling the story of a day in the kitchen through photos. When Sharon informed me of the menu and told me I’d actually get to eat the food they made, I was 2,000 percent on board. Naturally.

We started the session at the birth place of every good meal: the market. And then it was back to the kitchen where all of the magic happened before finally settling down at the table to enjoy the fruits of their labor. It was an amazing session with a delicious payoff in the end and I am so glad I got to spend the day with this very awesome couple.  Thanks, Sharon and Nick for the fun and the grub! So very much looking forward to your wedding day.
