Nick and Emily were so nervous when they arrived at Freedom Park. Both told me they don’t particularly like having their photos taken so I knew I had to step up to the challenge. I like to keep the mood of the session fun and less posed than sessions they likely had in the past. We walked, talked, got to know each other and I taught them how to dip, spin and “do the lift”. We laughed A LOT and somewhere along the way, they stopped feeling nervous. The images are so natural and their personalities came shining through.
I can’t wait for their September 2018 wedding at the Duke Mansion. They will be full-blown-not-even-one-bit-nervous models on the big day after our time together at their engagement session. Oh, in case you were wondering, a champagne cork can actually travel upwards of 8-10 feet (that thing shot off like a rocket!!) ha!
