Gail and Jim, the Canterbury engagement!

When I met Gail, the connection was instant. I can’t always put my finger on why I connect with my clients the way I do, but we just fell easily into conversation, and I was too intrigued by her intimate wedding….. Then she tells me she is a Veterinarian and the reason they live in South Carolina is because Jim is stationed there. An Army man… well that’s near and dear to my heart, I tell her my brother is in the Army. I was hooked! I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do… and stay tuned, their wedding blog is immediately following! These were take at Canterbury Village in Lake Orion.

I have to say that I do not like to give a ton of direction to my couples, the more I pose them, the stiffer they can look sometimes, so I like to keep it as natural as possible. I couldn’t tell these two what to do, they were in sync with each other and my camera… and they made my job seamless. 🙂
