Edgard+Kathea // Cleveland, TN

I’m not sure what to say… I just LOVE these images. Let me give you a little back story about Edgard and Kathea…

I first met Edgard when he got hired at Starbucks. He was 18 and in his last year of high school. And so much of the time, he would bring this girl to Starbucks with him. As far as we were told, they were only “best friends” but we were all thinking, For now

Then, Kathea started working at Starbucks too. Instantly, we knew why Edgard hung out with her all the time—she’s the sweetest girl you’ll ever meet with a fantastic sense of humor! Simply put—she’s a catch!

A few months after they graduated high school, they started dating. Two weeks after they were “official”, Edgard popped the question and he even had the ring!

The best part about this whole story is Kathea will tell you she always knew they were going to get married, even before they started dating. She has said on more than one occasion, “I knew we would get married. Edgard didn’t. But I did.”

Love that! And I love, love, love these pictures. Edgard and Kathea—I hope you love them too! So enjoy and leave me some comment-love!

Like I said. Lots of love for these pictures and the couple in them.

I’m including these under the “engagement” category even though Edgard&Kathea are married because… well… It should be pretty obvious. Now’s the time for pictures because the weather has been awesome, the sky has looked like cotton candy for several weeks, and it’s summer time, which typically means more time to squeeze in a photoshoot!

Engagement-shoot winners Travis & Alanna are getting their pictures taken at the Tennessee Aquarium this coming Tuesday! So stay tuned for some sneak peaks from that session next week!

    You should think about putting your images on Flickr. They are good and should get some good comments/attention which could drive traffic to your blog/business (if you put your web address on your watermark).

    Thanks, Eric! I usually do upload my images to Flickr (while some of them have been marked “private” for clients), but I’ll definitely take you’re advice about using my web address as the watermark. I hadn’t thought about that. And I’m glad you like the photos. πŸ™‚
