Engagement Sessions are like a box of Chocolates for me (Brilliant analogy Forrest!) because I never know what to expect. Â Some couples are shy, giddy with excitement, lovey dovey, playful, constantly laughing, quite and thoughtful etc. Â Whatever it is, that is what I want to capture. Â My goal is to make theme as comfortable as possible so that their Â unique qualities as a couple Â shine through in all the images. Â 99.9% of my couples are nervous and a little shy at the beginning of every session, which is to be expected…but 100% are having fun and loving the camera by the end…especially the, dare I say, Guys. Â I’m not doing my job as a photographer if you are not laughing with each other or at least laughing at me. Â I have done some crazy things to take the attention off the camera, and their is pretty much nothing I won’t do if it means creating a fun, comfortable environment. A couple who laughs together is the most beautiful thing in the world to me and when that happens in front of my camera I am on cloud 9!
April and Cary are a perfect example of my favorite type of couple to photograph. Playful, teasing, joking, and OH SO in love…their friendship and carefree laid back relationship was so fun to capture! Â I absolutely LOVED our location set off of highway 280 in a field of rolling yellow grass and blue skies. Â I literally ran up and down the trails getting inspired before the shoot started… also because who wouldn’t want to run around in a field!? Â It wasn’t until we were just about done…me in the tall grass on my belly, April and Cary positioned on a safe path, that a woman walking by said to beware of the rattle snakes who live in the grass and are out especially on a hot day like this. Â Terror struck me, Â “Alright, that’s a wrap!”
April, you are so beautiful and my camera LOVES you both! Â Thanks for such a fun, (safe), session! Â Enjoy!
A Sign saying, “Rattlesnakes Every Where, do not submerge yourself into the grass” would have been really nice right about now!
Isn’t she a beauty!?!?! Â Cary has two loves in his life so we captured both in one shot 🙂
