I'LL BE THE FIRST TO ADMIT I'M NOT A MORNING PERSON... EVER.
I'll admit, I struggle with getting up in the morning, and it takes a good amount of coffee to bring me to 'normal levels' of functionality. Also, throw in that I hadn't met Paxten & Luke until the morning of their engagement session.
They're both in the armed services, Luke had just arrived from being stationed overseas in Germany. Paxten has family about two hours away, so the meeting point was Sioux Falls. We spent the morning at Coffea, then walked around downtown and took them to a few historic spots.
It's always interesting meeting someone for the first time in person and see how they'll react to photos, they ended up being a LOT of fun, tons of Family Guys references, movie quotes and laughter -- without realizing it, we might have spent 3 hours together.
Looking forward to their wedding in Des Moines, IA next year. Enjoy!
