I love my clients. I do not say that lightly. I. LOVE. MY. CLIENTS.
Colton + Heather are the perfect example of why I love my clients. I’ll never forget our initial phone consult. Let me preface by saying this: I am HORRIBLE on the phone. I prefer to schedule phone calls so I can mentally prepare and decrease my odds of being a complete and total spaz while on the line. And yet, I still manage to fail hard. Like when I accidentally made a Freudian-level slip about Walmart/consumer photo labs “jacking up images” while educating these two on the benefits of professional prints. (Seriously, use your imagination and you’ll understand how red in the face I got!) But with fabulous clients like Colton + Heather, it doesn’t matter. I officially welcomed them to the Elle Golden Photography family and we later laughed about the slip during their Alpharetta engagement session. They accept and trust me, quirks and all. More importantly, they’re head over heels in love with each other, quirks and all.
All engagement photos hold special value for couples, but I know this one means a little more to Colton + Heather. Heather chose her childhood home as the setting and her father was present for the session. Sadly, Heather lost her dad quite suddenly a couple weeks ago. I’m hoping every time she looks through these images she’s reminded not only of the love she shares with Colton, but also the great memories made with her dad. I’m so grateful I was able to meet him that day and know he’ll be watching his daughter transform into the loveliest of brides this Saturday. ❤
