When Mike and I were looking for our wedding photographer, Ulysses Photography was our top choice. Ulysses and Jenni were the first and only photographers we met with and, soon after we stepped foot in their door, we knew that we didn’t need to look any further. It goes without saying that their work is incredible, but their personalities were what really solidified our decision. They are incredibly sweet and genuine. They are so enthusiastic about their work, and they sincerely care about making your photos fantastic. Their fun, positive energy is contagious.
So for our engagement session, we knew that regardless of what we did, they would work their magic to produce amazing photos. But we wanted to make sure we put a personal spin on our session. When Mike proposed, he hid the ring in a cupcake box—so we knew that we wanted to incorporate cupcakes into our engagement session (and, of course, we’ll take any excuse to stray from the wedding diet and munch on some sweets). And since we love going on picnics, we figured that would be a perfect way for us to relax and just enjoy our date day. We also wanted to make sure our more predominant silly side came through in the photos, too—that’s where the books came in.
Ulysses & Jenni really helped to make us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the session. We had such a fun, easy day with them! Mike isn’t the type to enjoy having his photo taken (or to look forward to the results), but they somehow changed his perspective and kept him engaged in the process—I’m not sure that anyone else could have done that.
When we went for our reveal, Ulysses & Jenni had a tray filled with goodies for us to snack on while we looked at our photos (yet another example of how awesome they are). And when we saw our photos, we were blown away. It was so difficult to pick our favorite photos because each one was more amazing than the next. We just received our prints and wall art, and we are so thrilled with how they turned out!
We truly can’t wait to join these two for their wedding at the Fallkirk Estate.
More with Katie + Mike.
