It was moments before Kaitlyn and Hunter’s first look in Deer Creek State Park. I stood with Hunter as Kaitlyn approached him from behind, both of their hearts beating fast from anticipation! Hunter is a jokster, which means that Kaitlyn was so nervous he would turn around and see her before it was time. I’ve known Hunter since I was a kid, so I felt comfortable telling him he’d better not turn around before he was supposed to!
Hunter, by nature, likes to mess around, but today, he looked at me and said, very seriously, “I know. I won’t. I know these pictures are very important to her.” It really touched me that he knew how much these photos mattered to Kaitlyn, and he wasn’t about to turn around and ruin the moment. For Hunter, this moment was all about Kaitlyn.
As Hunter turned around to look at his bride, he was all smiles, and he immediately wrapped Kaitlyn in a big hug. You could see the emotion and love between them as they smiled and laughed together. Kaitlyn was so cute, she was so excited the whole time we were taking pictures that she wouldn’t stop grinning. She kept scrunching her shoulders and giggling- it was adorable to see how much she loved Hunter.
Kaitlyn and Hunter, you are such a beautiful couple. I’m so glad that I got to witness your first look and be there to capture these moments for you. You are both phenomenal people who are kind and considerate of one another! I can’t wait for your wedding in Texas!
