I was back at a familiar place the other night when I met up with Joan and Jim for their engagement photos at Clyde’s Willow Creek Farm. I hadn’t even met either of them before, so I was a little nervous! You always want to make a good impression, right? Not only was I meeting new clients, but I was thinking about how to take the best photos of them, what kinds of cues I wanted to remember, and where to go to balance hitting up the good spots of a place I’ve been before but also mixing up new perspectives. But of course things went with ease as I got to talk to them more to learn about their love story, how all their wedding plans were coming together, and share our mutual fondness for Marriott hotels.
We didn’t have much time for engagement photos before their wedding because their big day actually happened this past weekend! So you won’t have to wait long to see their wedding day photos too. But for now let’s celebrate their engagement! I just love seeing how guys can bring out the sweetest laughs and smiles in the ladies, and Joan and Jim were no different. When people can just “be” with each other, it often makes for the best photos! Enjoy!
