What can I say about this couple? I usually have my photo editor pull out the best shots and throw them up on the blog – saved in the drafts folder to await my approval. I then go through, delete a few shots, and publish the post with little to no comments just to keep fresh images coming. It’s different this time. I tried to hit the publish button, but I just couldn’t. I had to say something about this couple. Well, it’s more about Jackie because I really only met Mike on the shoot so I don’t know too much about him other than he’s married to Jackie (which says a lot) and that he’s great looking, successful, and a super nice guy. Mike, if you read this, please take this as a “I want to hang with you and get to know you more” ok? :) Ok, on to Jackie…
I met Jackie a couple years ago when she styled my NYC shooting workshop. I only met her briefly during the workshop, but knew I was lucky to have her because of the amazing styled shoot she put together for me. You can view some of those images here. I also knew that I was lucky to start this relationship with her because I could instantly sense that she was the kind of person that everyone loved. I knew from the minute I met her that if she wasn’t already killing it in her business that it was just a matter of time because when God gives someone talent, passion, and a genuinely gracious and sweet personality, you know that person is going places. Turns out she was already killing it and still is. She’s the greatest thing the NYC wedding market has seen in quite some time! Check out her labor of love “Merci New York” and see what I’m talking about.
Jackie and Mike gave me the honor of photographing them for my NYC workshop this spring and it just so happened it was on their 4th anniversary! Such a beautiful couple! I wish you guys many many years of happiness together! Can’t wait to see you both again! Read Jackie’s post about the shoot here.
Thanks so much to the wonderful vendors that made this shoot a success!!
