wendy and troy : omaha engagement photography

So Wendy has been waiting for this blog post for a long time. Like...ten minutes after I got home from their session she was already asking if it was blogged yet. So, since good things come to those who's finally here. :)

Troy is the brother of one of my favorite people, Darbi G. He was my last and only chance to marry into the fantabulous Gibson family, but unfortunately he was already taken, by the beautiful Wendy. They're a hilarious, fun couple who are about two feet apart in height.

I'm serious! You'll see!

We actually did two sessions. The first session was at Vala's Pumpkin Patch in Gretna, just outside of Omaha.

See what I mean about the height?

With a height difference of four feet, there are only two things you can do....hide it, or flaunt it. We flaunted.

More fun with their ten foot height difference!


Sunset came quickly, so a few days later we finished up the session at the OPPD Arboretum, a gorgeous little park in Omaha.

You'd think, with their twenty-three foot height difference, that Troy could easily jump over Wendy. But the above shot was the result of several attempts, during which Troy proved that, indeed, White Men Can't Jump.

Troy and Wendy are getting married in Kentucky this summer, and then having a reception here in Omaha a few months later. I can't tell you how lucky I am to call them - and Darbi and their sister Temple...not to mention their insane parents - friends. Congrats, you guys! :)

troy said...

Yay, we read it and we now feel like an official couple now! Thanks we had so much fun!

Darbi G. Photography said...

Awwwww!!! Such a fun time it looks you had.... my absolute fave is the most bottom one on the left...mostly because it helps me see my brother and his woman as "sexy" and "in love"....something not easily accomplished when you're related. haha

Btw, the wedding is in KENTUCKY!! :)

Kentucky, there really a difference? But fixed. :)

troy said...

That's my favorite too! I looks like I actually love her!

I always think theres "unchained melody" or a Top Gun song playing to that pic.

Mom said...

Oh, what an adorable couple. Maybe I'm prejudiced? Well, maybe I am but they still are adorable. Love you both, Troy and Wendy! Great job Lara! And I love you too!
