We’ll be honest, the first time we met Alex and Kyle, we just about fell out of our chairs — because it was like looking directly into a mirror! He’s tall and dark with a little Mediterranean flair, like Jordan. Gregarious. Loud. Outspoken. The life of the party and center of attention. But warm and inviting, too. Friendly. Fun-loving. And sometimes (okay, almost always) a little inappropriate. That’s at least according to Amy and Alex, the blonde-haired, fair-skinned, sweet, slightly shy women (or maybe just shy by comparison), who put up with the guys’ shenanigans. And, though they’ll only admit it while rolling their eyes and through gritted teeth, they like it. Especially when the guys remind them on the daily, “You chose us!”

“You chose us!”

Needless to say, we laughed at this session. A lot. Maybe more than ever, and certainly more than normal. Because, as Amy found in her time as an elementary school teacher, the only thing worse/more entertaining than one little rascal, is two little rascals… in grown men’s bodies. She thinks Alex would agree. At least they’ll have each other to lock
and roll eyes with when the boys do a rendition of The Croc Hunter together on the wedding day next spring, like they did at the engagement session. If you ask Jordan, he’ll tell you that the best part about it was simple: he didn’t even really have to explain it to Kyle. He just knew what to do. Not familiar with Jordan’s Croc Hunter impression on Snapchat, you can see a version of it here.

But, really, because we haven’t been too serious up until this point, Alex and Kyle, we love you guys. We knew from the first time we sat down, because we walked out, looked at each other, and said the same thing, THOSE are our people. We laughed harder at your session than we have in a long time. And the photos couldn’t have turned out better. You guys came to life for the camera! Kyle, thanks for being Jordan’s partner-in-crime. For making him not feel like he’s the only one in the world like him. But also for reminding Jordan that God only made a few like you guys, and He tries to keep you spread out, because that’s a lot to handle all at once! Alex (this is Amy talking), until we see you again, hang in there — and I’ll do the same.
