We were so excited to photograph this special couple’s Marion, Indiana engagement session.
They met on Myspace. They had a common “friend,” Zac Braff. They loved the TV show, The Adventures of Pete and Pete, and Miles commented on the presidential election and Cat responded. True love, folks. You never know where you’ll find it! 🙂 That was four years ago.
A long distance relationship, a move from Florida to Indiana, and now a wedding!
I met Miles and Cat last fall and immediately connected with them. They’re the duo behind Cat Alkire Photography so we had plenty to talk about! With our schedules, we don’t get a lot of time to swap stories with other wedding photographers!
And then we found out that Miles is a Buckeye. Now I will fully admit that I’ve coined the phrase, “It doesn’t change anything in my life,” while watching Ohio State play, but I am unique for our family. Troy, our parents, and our whole extended family is OBSESSED. Even our 92 year old grandma will ask me what I thought of “the game.” So to discover that Miles is a huge Buckeye fan and runs an online store called “Hoody Wayes” is quite awesome.
And then we discovered that Cat is Italian. Believe it or not, Troy and I are Italian; yeah, we don’t look like it. I know! Our Italian heritage is what we identify with most, eating ravioli for Thanksgiving, rigatoni and wedding soup on Christmas eve, and spaghetti every Sunday. Our family even had an Italian restaurant for a few years when we were growing up!
Cat’s a little cooler than we are with her Italia tattoo, but nonetheless, we’re excited for their wedding and to meet their families in South Bend for their wedding on October 9!
