I am getting so excited for this couple's wedding in a couple of weeks. It's going to be a gorgeous mountain wedding. Because they will have a largely nature backdrop for their wedding photographs, we decided to head downtown to Inglewood and the East Village for their engagement photos. Just to give them some variety from the images we create together.
Okay, I'm going to admit something there....I'm always a little bit nervous when I meet people for the first time. I'm a wee bit awkward and nerdy, so I'm always afraid that I won't be 'cool' enough or 'something' enough...plus, I genuinely want to do my best for each of my clients. So, the adrenaline is always making me a wee bit frenetic. I say that only because these two were so nervous to have their picture taken. I'm sure they were wondering why they were putting themselves through the stress of engagement photos when their wedding was only a short time away. But, here's the thing...by the end, we were all so relaxed with each other. It's a big part of why I do engagement sessions with all of my clients. You see...nerves are even more heightened on the wedding day--add to that a timeline and sometimes things get a little nutty. By spending some time together in a relaxed and laid back way, we are truly making things easier on ourselves for the main event.
So...enough chit chat...here are the photos we created together.
