He SURPRISED her! Corey knows how meaningful sunflowers are for Katie – but when we did their engagement session in April, it was too early for them to be ready. So, he secretly arranged to have us take a few more at the end of the summer. We planted the seeds outside the studio, and as the summer days passed by – and the countdown for their wedding date continued – the flowers grew, and grew…and finally they were ready for the photos!
Sunflowers were a favorite of Katie’s Mum Mum who passed away when she was in 9th grade. Since then, Katie, her mom, her sister, her cousin, and other family members have gotten a sunflower tattoo in memory of her. So here are the photos – a tribute to Mum Mum, to the value of relationships in their family, and to the way that Corey knows and loves Katie.
