I’ll say it again and again… I’m not interested in a perfect portrait, perfect light, or the perfect pose. And neither are the couples I get to work with. I will always be looking for chemistry because for me, that’s what ultimately makes a beautiful image. When you can actually feel the people in the photo, like you know them.
Amanda+Gali are planning their wedding while thousands of miles apart from each other. So when Gali came to visit over the holidays in December, we scheduled their engagement session while he was in the area. This left little room for rescheduling for weather, so when I realized the rain wasn’t going to let up, we went to a nearby conservation area for some cover. Of course, we still managed to get wet, but it didn’t stop us from having a wonderful time. I say, embrace where you live! And that’s exactly what we did.
I’ll be photographing Amanda+Gali’s wedding at Swan’s Trail Farms this June.
