Kathleen + Arun – Albany Wedding Photographer

This session is very special to me. I have known Kathleen for the last 6 years. I met her my first day of work at the NYS Assembly. I was nervous and the “new girl” but this 5 ft nothing fellow redhead welcomed me into the group right away. Anyone that knows Kathleen knows of her sense of style and sense of humor. Kathleen is a 1920’s girl trapped in 2012 and I give her quite a bit of grief about it. She wears hats to work every day and I can literally count on one hand the amount of times that she has worn a pair of pants. We have a unique relationship where she likes to push my buttons and I roll my eyes at her about a million times a day. (Also…I swear to God…she has a dog with backwards legs.)

What you cannot tell by just looking at her is that she is one of the strongest, most selfless, caring and honest people that I have ever met in my entire life. She is the type of person that would drop everything to help you out. She is fiercely loyal and the two of us have been through a lot together. When she met Arun and fell in love, I was overjoyed. There is no one that deserves happiness more than this girl. Ok….enough of the sappiness. I’m starting to get myself teary!!

Today I am starting a new job and a new chapter in my life, and I thought it was fitting that though this is my first day of work in 6 years where she is no longer my coworker, she is still a part of my Monday morning.

Meet Kathleen + Arun!

Note: this was her CASUAL OUTFIT. Hahahaha! Flapper right out of the ’20s, right? But Kathleen pulls it off!

We found this old boat and it was perfect…they are getting married on July 21st!

After a quick outfit change, where I swear to god I busted out laughing when she came out with her fancypants hat, they had themselves a little champagne picnic on the beach. (Please just imagine if you will, everyone at the park in their bathing suits and shorts, and these two look like they are going to a polo match. I love it.)

I finally persuaded her to take the hat off for the end of the shoot, so that I could actually see that pretty face of hers.

Kathleen and Arun, thank you so much for trusting me with your engagement shoot. I cannot wait to celebrate your wedding and dance the night away to some Indian music. Love you guys!! xoxo

    It got a little ‘Gone With The Wind’ in that sunset photo, too. I’m a triple threat – flapper, polo socialite and southern belle. Seriously, thanks for bringing out the best in Arun John and me on this shoot! And thank you to Traci Hand-James for the amazing hair.ReplyCancel
