I cannot think or talk about Derek + Michelle without smiling or laughing. When we first met at The Fainting Goat Coffee Shop in Spring Hill, I was smitten with how they banter and play off one another. We talked about how they met and how ironic it was that they lived within a couple miles of each other when they started dating. They are both runners and hadn’t crossed paths on their running routes. They also have three fur babies and that sealed the deal for me. =) I knew there wouldn’t be a dull moment photographing Derek + Michelle . Their engagement session had me in stitches. In my opinion, laughter and being able to laugh at life are very important traits to have in the person you’re going to marry. There’s no shortage of those things with these two and that’s what I absolutely love about them.
