Meeting clients for the first time, and then clicking the shutter about 5 minutes later is what I do.
To build trust and have someone feel relaxed within that time frame is a skill, some of it’s learned, and some of it is definitely a God given gift that I don’t take for granted.
These two were willing to come a little earlier than planned to work around weather, and they were so comfortable with each other, that capturing their joy and love for each other was pretty simple! Towards the end, they brought out the pups for some family photos!
“Would you be willing to fly to our engagement session location?”
“Why yes, yes I would!”
Steve proposed to Amanda on their first airplane ride together on the way to Knik Glacier. So what better way to document it then to fly there!? Knik Glacier is a 1/2 hour ride, about 50 miles north of Anchorage.
At this very moment it started to snow…These two are beautiful together…a great pair. Tommy and I are really looking forward to photographing their winter wedding! After taking a few photos, we hopped back in, and Steve flew over the Glacier for a better view…it was spectacular.
Thanks to Steve for taking this one from his seat… Sleeping Lady is my favorite, so glad I was able to get this shot!
My heart melted when Jillian and I met up at a local grocery/coffee spot as she told me how her and Kris started dating; all the while her little guy was restless and ready to play with what ever he could get his hands on…so we didn’t have a lot of time to chat. Jillian is a hard working mom with a big heart and has faith in God that is like static electricity. I was thrilled to meet Kris on the day we shot their engagement photos. (In the same location that he proposed to her!) Kris is kind, soft spoken, and he is smitten, but not only with Jillian. Enjoy…
