I love that we never know how our couples will find us.

Maybe it’s a phone call from my Mom to Capitol One Card Services that ends up in a session booking, and this time, it was a brief ride on a safari truck!

Yep-When we boarded our safari truck to photograph Jenna and Liam’s wedding portraits on the savannah, I was seated by Krista, the cast member assigned to our group. We made small talk on the brief ride to and from the savannah, and I found out Krista was newly engaged and likely planning a wedding up north. As I was getting off the truck, she asked for our card, and I assumed we’d never see each other again.

Just a couple months later and we got an email from Krista saying she and her fiance, Kenny, would be eloping at the Lake County Courthouse and wanted some portraits after their ceremony. There’s such a special energy associated with elopements and they’re my favorite thing to photograph, and always make me think of our wedding day. <3

Krista and Kenny, we had a wonderful time getting to know you both and wish you the happiest ever after! :)

And while I layed in a hospital bed catching up on Girl Meets World, Nate photographed Lindsay and Jackie’s dessert party solo and did AMAZING. If I didn’t love shooting these events so often, I’d make Nate go on his own from now on! :)

Continued from Lindsay and Jackie’s Engagement Session. <3

As you may remember from Lindsay and Jackie’s preview post, this wedding took place while I was in the hospital with a gallbladder attack. In nearly 10 years, this was the second wedding I ever missed! :( I think before we even called our parents, we were emailing Kim to see if she could step in while I was unavailable! Of course I’m super bummed I missed their day, but Nathanial did some of his best work and knowing Kim was there to help him out was the biggest relief!

Today is one of those silly milestones that might not seem like much, but it’s a pretty big deal for me.

This is my 1000th blog post. 1000, you guys!!

We wanted to do something fun to commemorate it, so here we go! Years ago we did a session giveaway and loved the response. It actually led us to meeting one of our favorite families, one of the daughters eventually becoming our wedding assistant for a while! :)

So maybe you’ve been putting off booking that family photo session. Or you want to see my cute husband climb a tree. Maybe it’s been 10 years since your wedding and you haven’t been in front of the camera since. We want to hear from you!

Nathanial and I will be giving away one free portrait session* and USB drive (Valued at $700.) All entries must be received by Sunday, July 26th as we will be announcing our winner Thursday, July 30th on the blog.

All you have to do is take a photo of you and whomever else will be photographed and write a little something about why YOU should be in front of our cameras and send your entry to yaygiveaway@rootweddings.com. Your 10 day deadline begins now… We can’t wait to meet you! :)

*Your entry must be received by Sunday, July 26th at 11:59pm EST. The winner will be announced on the blog on Thursday, July 30th. Session date is based on our availability. Session must take place in Central Florida and take place by the end of June 2016 unless otherwise discussed. Must be at least 18 years old to enter. :)
