Morgan + Nathan | Emotive Vow Renewal | Twyla Jones Photography
This was definitely one of my favorite sessions of 2017 and I am so honored to have met Morgan and Nathan! The incredibly kind and beautiful Kathy Beaver of Kathy Beaver Photography reached out to me to schedule a mentor session while I was in North Carolina to work on couples posing. She did an amazing job finding this amazing couple and pulling together a styling team to make this whole day happen!
Our couple, Morgan and Nathan, met at CrossFit after Morgan's friend bribed her into going and she and Nathan became friends/ workout partners from there. Since they met through CrossFit and it was something they were both passionate about Nathan decided to propose the following year at Beer City Beatdown in 2015. He proposed in front of the entire crowd at the US cellular center right after a workout! The couple as been together for over 3 years and described their wedding day as 'perfect' but that it was really difficult to spend time with family and friends while also allowing enough time to capture amazing photographs. So, we decided to hike up Max Patch and catch a sunset in the same wedding dress Morgan was married in. The couple felt that the whole experience really reminded them of their wedding day and renewed the love they had for each other….which literally brings me to tears.
Morgan went on to share, “My favorite moment from the shoot was Twyla's technique and laid-back attitude. She made us feel so comfortable and it felt like we had known her forever. The mountain sunset was pretty great too but Twyla left such an impression on us that we wont forget. I would highly suggest using a photographer who can go with the flow but also has the confidence and knowledge to direct you to capture great pictures. Anyone can take a picture with a camera but a photographer like Twyla creates images and moments that blow your mind! Working with Twyla was absolutely amazing. She is so kind, easy to be around, and really knows how to create special moments which turn into breathtaking photos. I'm looking for reasons to use her again ASAP!”
