When I hear about people I know getting engaged I am always hopeful they will call the office to talk about wedding photography. Most people do because they know the quality and service we are able to offer. Besides having someone you know behind the camera always helps people relax. I met Taylor and Josh through my husband’s job. We’ve known Taylor for many years, quickly realizing that when she was young she came into the studio with her siblings for photos with the live animals at Easter time. We have often joked we will need to recreate that photo now that they are all adults! When Taylor and Josh met it was clear to those around them that they were a good match. While at my house one day she mentioned a winter wedding in the snow. Well when she and Josh finally settled on a date it was October, the most popular month of the year for weddings. I told her to get working on plans fast because those go fast. She came into the studio to talk about packages, we were hoping Josh could come to but he got stuck at jury duty. No matter we set up a time to do engagement photos before it got too cold outside. We actually got lucky with an overcast day, slight wind but warm enough to get some beautiful images. When they arrived they were a bit nervous about photos, they wanted to make sure they looked their best. It was very easy to accomplish this because after a few quick photos they were warmed up. They quickly learned what to do as I tried to get out the words to pose them – left hand, right hand, turn this way….it doesn’t always come out of my mouth the way I want it. However Taylor and Josh just laughed with me and did exactly what I wanted or sometimes something even better. They enjoyed the proofs I presented to them so I hope this get them excited about wedding day photos. A pleasure working with you my friends.
