I met this gorgeous couple tonight. Although I no longer photograph weddings, one of the things I truly miss is engagement sessions. In my opinion, it is one of the easiest sessions there is. If you think about it….you have two adults, that listens to directions, that you can have conversations without involving princesses or superheros, and you don’t have to even bribe them! Now don’t get me wrong, I am still obsessed with my little tots but sometimes it can just be much more challenging (which I also love).
Anyways, after the rain earlier (even drizzles on the drive to their house) mother nature was on their side and held off for them. You will be shocked because all of these pictures were done in their back yard (gorgeous, right?!).
I have to mention, though, I completely had an embarrassing moment on my end. Most of my clientele include young children. When I do a session (specifically with young children), I always call the mom “mom” and the dad “dad” instead of using their first names around the kids. Well this session definitely did not include children and not once but TWICE I said, “okay dad…step this way/turn this way” Luckily they completely understood but it definitely made me go red face embarrassed!
Aside from that, I really enjoyed meeting this new couple and loved taking pictures for their engagement. Congratulations on your engagement and I wish you the very best at your wedding!!
