Ruthie is a dear friend, one I’ve known for a long time. More recently, Ruthie’s brother and sister-in-law introduced her to a good friend of theirs, Lee… and he and Ruthie hit it off right away. I would see these Facebook and Instagram posts from Ruthie that really told me Lee was something special. Excited for Ruthie, we would chat every once in a while over text, and one day last spring, she made a comment about wanting me to someday be her wedding photographer. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, it’s such a special thing to have friends ask me to be their photographer, (but I also completely understand if it doesn’t work out). In this case, when I got Ruthie’s comment about one day shooting her wedding, I not-so-inconspicuously texted Ruthie asking if that would actually be a possibility in the near future! I’d never met Lee, but like I said, it really seemed like Lee was pretty important. She confirmed he was probably the one, but said nothing would happen in the near future. Well, much to her surprise, just weeks later Lee proposed and they were planning a fall wedding in Ruthie’s hometown of Macon, Georgia. I was so excited to travel down to middle Georgia a few weeks ago, and we fit in their engagement session just two days before the wedding! (Which means, the wedding blog post isn’t too far behind!) We set up their engagement session at a historic Pecan Plantation, Pineola Farms. The weather was a bit ominous, but we had such a fun afternoon and the location was beautiful. It was a great long-weekend in Georgia in fact, and I can’t wait to share more!
