I first met Aaron back in Lauree and Shane’s wedding this past May as he and Kay played some smooth jazz during the reception. He was laid-back and cool, the way a string-bass player can only be. I didn’t know at the time his smooth-ness was his woo-ing the Ms. Kay Miller, pianist and vocalist extraodinaire. I’ve known Kay many years, having played in the worship band at Christ Community Church together for years.
Kay and Aaron met during classes at Lamar State College Port Arthur’s new Commercial Music and Recording Arts program (you’ve seen her in the commercials – oh, and she graduated this past weekend – congratulations Kay!). She plays and sings all over Southeast Texas, and you can find her or both of them most weeks at Sugas, New York Pizza Pasta, Starvin’ Marvins and several other establishments into great music and dining.
Which brings us to Sugas, a place where Aaron and Kay spent many evenings in their dating life together and the perfect backdrop to their engagement session:
We spent most of our time on Sugas back porch, the weather was perfect and that was the only place they would let me put this huge ladder up and shoot down through the moving ceiling fan blades:
Don’t they just ooze “cool”?
It comes from being comfortable with each other, but mostly from being comfortable in their own skin – “confidence is sexy”.
From there we moved inside to the piano, Kay’s second skinAaron listened in the background, then joined later for a duet.
One of the most enjoyable engagement sessions…Oh, the ring? It’s Aaron’s grandmother’s diamond, set into a ring for Kay – something old, something new…
Congratulations Aaron and Kay!!!
