Natasha is one of those gals who comes at you with such fierce smarts and get-shit-done-ness that you alllllmost don’t see the sass right away– until she drops a smirky one-liner that will have you laughing for weeks afterwards. When my fellow sassy cynics show up I feel a kindred spirit right away, and working with Natasha to help pull her gorgeous Capitol Hill wedding together was such a damn dream because keeping it real is her middle name.
Yet… her wedding day had her in the feel-parts. I’ve never heard of Natasha being quiet, but in the cab up to see Doug for their first look, she didn’t even sass me (!). Just in her own brew of emotions. If there’s an argument for having a first look, it’s this: letting yourselves exhale together before the big day starts. No need to be all in yo’ head for too long– finding your person on the wedding day feels like you’re a team who can tackle it all together.
Doug is her mellow better half who always has a kind word and gentle smile. Their engagement photos are still one of our favorite sessions of all time. Can’t imagine life without this dream team in it– also, how good in front of the camera are they?! Damn.
