We got a call from Katherine’s mom because we had done senior photos for her and now she was engaged! It was very exciting so they wanted to do some engagement photos. We selected a date having no idea what the weather would be – we were quickly surprised be winter weather when it had been nice days prior. When I arrived we talked about working quickly because of the cold but at the same time we would have to make sure to get wonderful photos and not look cold. Katherine and John were happy to snuggle up together to stay warm but also giving me those perfect engagement photos. Between shots they put on coats and gloves but of course that didn’t last long because we moved right into the next pose before we all froze. They brought their puppy with them for some photos as well as a friend to do some dog watching when we were not using the puppy in photos. She quickly became the coat holder as well! I was so lucky that Katherine and John posed together perfectly because it would have been much harder and taken longer if they needed a ton of directions in each pose. I did have to mention to John not to hold his hand in a fist like he was cold but that was really about it when it came to correcting the way they posed together. When I originally talked with mom she said that a digital option would be the best so they would have all the photos. I am really happy they decided that because they have too many photos to only pick a few. We talked about the wedding plans which are moving along even though it’s not until spring of 2020. Better to stay on top of all the planning than waiting until the last minute. We hope to have the opportunity to work with them on the wedding day as well! Congratulations.
