Natalie & Reed

April 22, 2019

A Spring Bloom Engagement Session | Paducah, Kentucky

Natalie and I hit it off in our emails before and during the wedding booking process and we learned that we have SO MUCH in common! For example, I’m Disney World (and plain Disney) obsessed – Natalie worked at Disney after college and she and Reed have been together several times already! That alone would make me love her BUT then Natalie learned that Neil and I had yet to eat at their favorite dining place (outside of Disney!), The Grind in Martin TN, she and Reed took us there for lunch before we ever even got together for their engagement session! The food was yummy but the company was amazing and I could hardly WAIT to get together with them a month later!

Speaking of hardly being able to wait to get together – Natalie & Reed have been doing most of their relationship long distance! Shortly after they started dating, Natalie began working for Disney IN Walt Disney World! Afterward, she moved to Paducah for work while Reed continued his studies in Martin TN. They go back and forth on weekends and steal short trips to Disney (and beyond!) every once in a while and not only is their relationship surviving, it’s thriving!

Spending time with them over the past couple of months has made me realize how blessed I am to be able to do what I do – After their engagement session, I am STOKED to photograph them again at their November wedding but more than that, I’m thrilled to continue spending time with them, however I get to! They are the epitome of an RHP Couple!
