Tanner and Kim’s Fort Worth engagement session – where should I start? I met them both working my first official photography job after graduating college with my BFA. Tanner and I worked in a large warehouse that processed marathon race photos. My job was to color correct photos for printing day in and day out, and I eventually upgraded to advanced Photoshop retouching along with a bit of graphic design. Tanner was technically my supervisor, but he and I became friends because we both shared the same taste in music and sense of humor. I also met Kim towards the beginning of working that job as well via Tanner’s and her group of amazing friends. At the time, I remember Tanner being super excited for her to move back to Fort Worth after she finished her degree in Austin. Additionally, I feel like we all became close friends when Tanner drummed for Nick’s band, Lindby, for awhile. These days, we all consider Tanner an honorary Lindby member since he occasionally provides AWESOME remixes, electronic collaborations, and production for them!
Here are links to a couple of my favorite tracks that Tanner worked on (this is not required listening – I’m just so proud and excited for my musically inclined friends)
When I first branched out on my own and decided to make this whole photography business thing work, Tanner and Kim were one of the first couples I ever photographed! So when it came time to celebrate their engagement, I reached out to see if they’d let me have the honor of taking their engagement photos. (They said yes!) We meandered around Fort Worth looking for the best light and then headed over to Trinity Park for some family portraits with their pup, Adelaide.
The Austin-based bachelor/bachelorette parties are done (and were such fun!), and tomorrow, Nick and I are SO EXCITED to attend their wedding as guests! We’ll be dancing the night away celebrating our good, good friends start this new chapter in life. Congratulations, Tanner and Kim!!!
