Oh friends, I can’t wait to introduce you to these two love birds! I am so thrilled that I was able to offer them a newlywed photography session this year, in spite of living over 1,200 miles apart and all the other craziness of 2020!
I originally met Danny & Esther in 2016 during my doula certification training with Dulce Birthing Services. Granted, they didn’t share a last name at the time. 😉 Esther was a fellow birth and postpartum doula; Danny was my mentor’s son. Flash forward to 2020, and they’re now a glowing newlywed couple! Guys, they are SO in love! It’s utterly adorable. 🥰
When I heard about their marriage, I’ll admit that I wasn’t altogether surprised. I had had a hunch for a while, and there were multiple times when Danny’s mom confided that she hoped something would happen between them. 😂 Needless to say, I was overjoyed when I heard about them tying the knot!
I had never considered photographing them, since they live in Texas and I’m in Michigan. But in September we drove down to visit family, and I realized I could offer the new Mr. & Mrs. a newlywed photography session!
Granted, I didn’t give them much advance notice. In fact, it was only about 12 hours of heads’ up. 😂🙈 But they were so accommodating in spite of the short notice, and agreed to meet up the next morning for their shoot!
I was particularly excited about their session because I don’t often get to photograph couples. Especially couples that will let me try out all sorts of crazy poses on them. 😆
They were so gracious the entire time, even though I had all four of my children with me on the shoot and was *slightly* distracted at times. 😅 Danny was making everyone crack up with his jokes and funny faces, and Esther was game for every pose I wanted them to try. At one point she even changed into a more flowy skirt so she could piggyback on Danny. Such a great sport!
Honestly, the entire session was just a blast, and I’m so glad we were able to fit it into the schedule with only 12 hours’ notice! They were real troopers. Enjoy this peak into their gallery!
