Been a hot minute, huh? Is everyone else running around like chickens trying to not forget to make dinner or do all the laundry that's been piling up in the guest room. I know they say the day gets ahead of you but I am quite sure the whole dang week does.
I have been blissfully engaged in the life of my 6 month old, Charlie and in the throes of my busy season- aka wedding season! When I say love is in the air I mean it's pretty much the only air I have been breathing :) Lots and lots of lovebirds have consumed my weekends. I am not complaining one bit! Every couple brings so much personality and fun to my work and I find it challenging in the best way to keep things fresh and make beautiful photos for the each of them!
THIS COUPLE RIGHT HERE THOUGH.
Y'all!! Have y'all ever heard of THEWAYWEMET ? No, if not do yourself a favor and enjoy a brain break and read some of these amazing stories they have complied. Well these two are NO exception. I ADORE their story.
Say hello to Lance and Sarah. Residing in the good ole Louisiana but Sarah a Texan at heart. Picture this... you are dining by yourself at the local restaurant of any passerby's choice- the Chimes on campus. Lo and behold the man that is also dining by himself for the evening approaches your table and asks if you are meeting anyone. You don't know whether to duck and run or to smile and flirt. Good thing for Lance, Sarah decided on the latter. Although, under the guise of being completely harmless, Lance listened to the worn out from a long day woes and even offered to help her with her car that was having trouble recently.
Y'all- I kid you not, the rest if history! What in the world?! Who does that happen to. I mean Sarah didn't just dive right in to Lance's offer of car repairs. She insisted she drive it back to Houston so her dad could take a look at it but upon the news of that not working, Sarah knew his offer was good when he showed up the next weekend and got everything working again.
This is the stuff movies are made of. The two began their "dating" with Lance's offer to wine and dine her at his home one evening. Sarah laughed under her breath things this handsome bachelor would surely be wooing her with his best RiceaRoni concoction. To her surprise, she walked into a kitchen full or aromas and a dinner out of a 5 star restaurant.
The two of them love their food so much we crafted their whole session around their favorite Saturday lineup- the Downtown Farmers Market and making pasta together- from scratch!
We started at 7:30 to bet the crowds. The two of them continued to pursue the stalls and choose their yummies for the evening. Tasting cheese, choosing flowers, bread choices, tomato options... we did it all. These two curated their afternoon within the hour and we were off to the house to start the process!
Sarah had the dough made and ready to roll (hahah--- get it) the two of them were like clockwork. They were pros. Everything for pasta making seemed like a seamless, everyday task. I was mesmerized of course because the closest thing to homemade I have been getting these days was a random green smoothie for breakfast!
Their system was endearing and charming and quick! In no time at all the little strings were hanging on their stand and waiting for the boiling water that was soon to come.
We finished up in their backyard feeding the chickens some seed. I swear one would think we step back to 1940 but these two just enjoy the simple things in life and I was so thankful to have come along for their "Perfect Saturday Sess".
