I am so happy to have the privilege to shoot most of the things I shoot – but engagement pictures are a particular privilege. Someone is inviting you to capture their fresh, overwhelming, intimate passion for one another. In their minds they see images that reflect all the emotions they feel for each other and for their future – and often in the moment they feel a little embarrassed, awkward and worried they’re not “doing it right”. Getting to know the couple well enough in the short span of a photo shoot to put them at ease and bring to the surface their excitement and love makes engagement sessions really fun for me.
But to be honest, Caroline and Jeff had no problems being at ease. They were so fun and sweet and affectionate with each other. Being improvisers didn’t hurt either.
I am so lucky to have met you guys – here are a few of my favorites (it’s hard to pick because there are SO MANY great images!)
