The first time I met Zach and Gracie, it was a Sunday afternoon in a Panera. I'm usually never nervous for client consultations, but for some reason they had me rattled. After the consultation, I left thinking "Wow, I really don't know if they are going to book me but I sure hope they do!" Sure enough, a few days later, I got the long-awaited call and they were ready to pay their deposit.

Shortly thereafter, they booked their engagement shoot since they're getting married in just two short months! We met in Uptown Westerville on a beautiful Tuesday morning (the day after the tornadoes came through central-Ohio, might I add). They came dressed to the nines and we explored Uptown Westerville together. We shared laughs and stories and they told me about all of their plans to go into ministry. It was official, I LOVED them.

Gracie and Zach just have it; they have the "X" factor that every couple wants. Maybe it's the pre-wedding glow, maybe it's because they are centered in Christ, but either way, this couple was a gem to photograph. I can't wait to shoot their wedding this navy and blush wedding (a color palette I'm swooning over) this July at Cheers Chalet (a venue I've been dying to shoot at). Congratulations, you two!
