So the news is out. This tiny nugget of joy that we have kept close to our hearts has been shared to the world ...OK I know the entire world doesn't know (or care), but at least OUR world knows. Our whole life is being disrupted in a few months and if you had asked me if I was ready for this 5 years ago, hell even a little over 2 years ago, I would have said "NOPE". That's the funny thing about not getting what you want when you want it - it tends to makes you want it more. I always try to be as authentic as possible in how I communicate with any audience, although typically it looks like images of beautiful people in some of the happiest times of their lives, but this story's happy ending (or beginning) started right here in this picture. I have no idea why I took this picture that day, but I did and I'm so glad I did. It reminds me of this journey we've been on...
I have spent the past [almost] five years as a solopreneur with Jill Doty Photography. It has been my brain child, the fruit of all my labor and my baby. As I have grown personally and professionally, I realized it was time to add a team member to this business of mine. The process has been a rough road to find just the right person to help us grow, and we cannot WAIT to bring her on this July.
These two flew in from Texas just for their engagement session at Ponce City Market this weekend and while the weather wasn't exactly ideal Margaret and Mark were total troopers... while I was bundled up like it was snowing. This was my first time meeting Mark but he was everything Margaret described and when I heard their proposal story, he became even more of a keeper!! Quite possibly the most thoughtful proposal ever - from reliving the first date to coordinating friends from near and far - it was perfect! It's so obvious Margaret and Mark are absolutely smitten with each other and I love that they are viewing this time before the wedding to not only plan for the big day but also for their marriage. So many couples lose sight of this in the excitement of the engagement season! Margaret and Mark (also I really want to just call you guys M&Ms), thank you so much for traveling for your shoot and braving the cold! You two are truly wonderful together and I can't wait for your wedding later this year!!
