When Cassidy contacted me about her idea of going to Galena for a wine tasting engagement session, I responded with “SIGN. ME. UP.” Galena has a special place in my heart. I can’t tell you how many times my husband and I have discussed the logistics of moving there. The quaint downtown, the bluffs, the history…we love it all. So, give me an opportunity to head over and be a Galena wedding photographer for a day and I’m all over it. Plus, I love wine.
I’ve known Cassidy for almost nine years now. She was one of my trainers when I worked at Bennigan’s back in my college years and we became fast friends. Life has thankfully slowed down a bit from those days and it’s fun to see our families form. Bennigan’s is actually where I met my husband, so our “Bennibuddies” have a near and dear place in our heart.
Cassidy has such a kind heart. She’s the type of person who would nurse a baby squirrel to health or help a turtle cross a road. I’m so happy that she found a guy to reflect that kindness back to her. Ben and Cassidy are such a genuine couple, always finding something to laugh about together. You can tell from their pictures how in sync the two of them are. Our afternoon was so much fun and I can’t wait for more sessions and weddings in Galena!
