One of the very first photographers I met when I started my blog was the ever-gracious, Julie Napear. I cannot thank her enough for helping me build content at the very beginning of my rather clue-less endeavor into Wedding Blogging. She gave me one of my first Real Capitol Weddings and my very first Capitol Vendor Spotlight. I am so pumped today to be featuring some new work from Julie, the adorable & fun engagement shoot of Bree & Thomas.
And naturally you can totally called me biased on my opinion of this shoot because I share the same name with the bride, AND I have a soft spot for high school sweethearts (I married mine too!). But, I am OK with that. Judge away :)
Bree shares with us a bit about her & Thomas:
We are actually high school sweethearts. We met in wrestling, the coach made him wrestle me because I was beating all the boys :) haha. We started dating our freshman year when I met him at a swimming hole with him and his friends. He taught me everything, including how to drive a stick. After we graduated, he went to Liberty to pursue Criminal Justice and was on a wrestling scholarship, while I attended LFCC for education. We got engaged on Feb 12, 2010. It was suppose to be on Valentine’s day but he got too excited! Haha. We bought our first house in Maurertown. As for wedding details: our wedding is Aug 6 at Bowling Green Country Club, with an outdoor ceremony & indoor reception.
Such an adorable story – I love the tidbits about Bree kicking ass at wrestling and that Thomas was too excited to propose to wait until V-day! Thank you to the love birds for sharing your story & e-sess with us. Special thanks again to Julie Napear Photography for letting us share these images!
I can’t post a feature without announcing my favorite shot … I think it’s this one! Love Bree’s smile & Thomas’ affection.
Bree is GORGEOUS, she is going to make one be-a-utiful bride.
I legit “awwed” out-loud about this one.
I love what Julie did with the editing on this next one. Really vintage-feeling to it.
Congrats again to Bree & Thomas! Good luck with the rest of your planning and enjoy every.single.second. of it. It flies!
