Wedding PR: Amazingly Fun Engagement Edition

So one day, I’m minding my own business (probably alternating my time between client work and playing with a kitten) and this came across my desk:

My first thought? Where in the world have you been all my life?

Don Mears Photography and Fete Studio joined forces for this amazing engagement shoot for our industry friend Morgan (aka the President of Richmond NACE). I still remember bumping into Morgan and the Fete team shortly after seeing this shoot at a networking event. I raced right up to the bride herself and started gushing rather uncontrollably. Brevity, as most of my friends will tell you, is not my strong suit. Neither is playing it cool.

So we got to work and were just over the moon when Bride & Joy decided to feature it:

The only downside? Since Lisa is about 3,500 miles away in Dublin, I had to settle with a virtual high five instead of a hug. 🙂 My sincere thanks goes out to  Bride & Joy for giving this wonderful session a home.
