Matt & Katie are the type of couple who almost make you jealous; the type of couple who have you go back home and “work on your relationship” because you suddenly realize true happiness & a picket fence, can in fact all be true 😉 The way they adoringly look at each other, and the way Matt flatters Katie in front of a crowd, would make any girl exclaim “awwwww” with sentiment. There is no doubt these two were meant to be together. Oh, and Katie, you won’t mind if I share your story here, will you?
Katie had a bit of an obsession, ahem I mean, infatuation with Matt in high school. Matt came around her school as an employee, and Katie would swoon at his sight every.time. She had the kind of attraction which I am sure had her doodling a self proclaimed prophecy all along: “Mrs. Matt Ebeneezer” on her notebooks. Years later Matt was a radio host, and Katie was his number one fan. On the radio Matt announced that he was engaged, Katie lost her optimism and dated through her college years. When recounting their story to us, Matt interrupted Katie and said something along the lines that he must have not been very bright, because the whole “engaged” bit was a joke, which he announced publicly, on the radio, on Valentine’s day— therefore accidentally taking himself off the market altogether. But when things are meant to be, they always come back into your life– as we all know the saying goes. Years passed and chance brought them together, more intimately this time. They dated for a few short months and had a wedding that I’m sure had all the guests exclaim “awwwww” with sentiment.
Sorry if I keep going about these two, but I just think there is so much to say about wonderful people like these. Matt & Katie are super talented photographers in Australia (in the Brisbane area, I believe). They traveled endless hours to Las Vegas for WPPI, and chose us to capture their love here in the US of A. We were a bit nervous to photograph such talented photographers from so far away, but once we met Matt & Katie, it was hard to part with them because the chemistry between us all was like that of old friends’. We got to hang out with them post shoot, and as we sat in a glamorous Las Vegas restaurant, we lost track of the hours, ate creme brule’ and talked about absolutely EVERYTHING.
Matt & Katie, we love you guys so much, you two are seriously an amazing duo, no matter if you are in front of the camera, behind the camera, or just loving on each other
Katie claimed to be nervous about being in front of the camera, but really proved herself wrong when she struck this awesome pose as soon as we began– um hello!?!!
Watch out for the Cacti, Matt!
As the sun was setting we went nuts capturing all the beauty we were surrounded by…
Are you going “awwwwww” right about now!?
Christine and I have decided: They need to build a little bit of desert here in Alabama…
Because they traveled such a long way from Australia, we thought incorporating paper airplanes in their shoot would be ever so fitting.
