lori + dan e shoot















Right after Christmas I had the honor of shooting two of the most genuine and fun people- my awesome couple Lori & Dan. I hadn't met Dan yet because when we booked he was overseas so I was really excited to meet him and get to know him better. We decided to meet up at West Hartford Center and start shooting there and end up at the new Blue Back Square. We started at Mike's second home, Starbucks (I think he may actually give Mary a run for her money on who exactly is more addicted to their coffee...!) and had our pre-wedding meeting, to go over all of the details of the day since they live out of state and this would be the last time we met prior to their wedding. I love this part of my job- planning and figuring and talking about what they are most excited for. It's a really nice prelude to the wedding.
So we start in Starbucks, they are so freaking cute- Dan makes Lori laugh so easily! I am not sure if they were laughing at me or Mike or what but it worked! We then decided to pop into the Elbow Room for a cocktail and relax (we still were shooting.) Once we got out (it was raining on and off all day) we found cool alleys, store fronts and even Crate & Barrel which we unceremoniously got our butts kicked out of, albeit politely!! It was a good time, to be sure!
We are so exited for your wedding and can't wait to see you two in March!
