It's like a second date of sorts. We've met them, they've met us...but are we all that comfortable yet? How does one go from all the polite talk to "feel free to make out in front of our cameras" just kidding
. What's our secret weapon? We talk...that's it, nothing secret...just talking to our couples, laughing at all the crazy poses Grant tries on the groom...hearing their love story, and slowly, eventually, the barriers are broken down and it happens - the relaxed smile, a little laugh, and our couple starts to melt in each other's arms, and notice us less. It could take 10 minutes, or 30 minutes, but that's when the fun begins.
Of course, it happened pretty early with Emily and Brian. They gave us all kinds of fodder to discuss. Like when Brian rolled in on a motorcycle, while Emily rolled in with a small suitcase. You see, Brian relaxes in the wind, while Emily relaxes when she is completely and utterly organized, and why not bring a rolling perfectly organized beauty tool bag? duh! ;)
What a blast it was getting to know these two better, especially at the end when they introduced us to a new restaurant. Good friends, Good food, and oh yeah... some pretty neat pictures too!
