It’s true, we love our job and everything about it. We love that we get to work together as full time wedding + senior photographers based in Hattiesburg! We get to sip our morning coffee together, take our sweet pup LuLu on a midday walk, and get our daily fitness in at Versus Strength and Conditioning.. You know, living the dream! But more than anything, we love investing in our couples marriages and showcasing the beautiful and joyful love that they share! Because what’s better than doing life with your best friend?! And when we’re serving our amazing couples, we’re living our best life! And if we get to CrossFit that morning, well that’s the best! But there’s one part of our job that we absolutely hate. Yes, you read that right. There is a part of our job that we hate. So you’re probably asking yourself what we hate?
You guys we hate saying no. As our business continues to thrive, our availability becomes even more limited. Which means our dates are typically booking over 1 year in advance.
Because we want to be a Refuge for you. Because we don’t simply just photograph weddings and engagement sessions.. We build relationships that last. We cheer our couples on throughout their marriage. And even on their worst days, our prayer is that our couples will look at their wedding album and see just how much love they share. The thought of not being able to love and serve a couple the way we do, well it breaks our hearts.
And even though we were already booked on Taylor and Austin’s wedding date, we were so stinkin excited when they asked us to photograph this special time in their lives!! The moment that we met Taylor and Austin on the Gulf Coast, it seemed like we had known each other for years! Taylor was the absolute sweetest and we’re still not over the way she would just look over and giggle at Austin! Austin drove all the way from Louisiana, where he’s a baseball coach at Louisiana Tech University. I mean ladies, can we say #goals?!
How do we put into words just how excited we are for you two? We were so honored to capture this beautiful moment in your love story! And even though we won’t be with you on your wedding day, we know that you two are going to have the most perfect day, simply because it doesn’t get any better than getting to spend life with your best friend!! Your love is so joyful and we wish you so many years of celebrating life together! Always remember we’re here to be a Refuge for you😊
Love and Big Hugs,
Anna and Ryan
