So today was awesome 😁. I had the opportunity to do my first engagement session 🍾 this year. The lovely couple was Adam and Paige. They are the future Hicks family 👨👩👧👦. I met them through my Engagement Session Giveaway 💍.
Paige entered in and was one of the lucky names that I pulled out of the hat. I am so glad that they won because they are, indeed, my kind of couple: very light-hearted, fun, funny, down-to-earth, and super into each other. Not only did we take some great portraits but we had a lot of fun doing so 📸. They did fantastic for “newbies” (which is how Paige described them).
Even though these two are know to the photography game, they came ready. Well, they did have a little help. I have an email that I send all my couples to help them prepare for a 90 minutes of photography because, lets be honest, standing in front of a camera for that long can be nerve-wrecking. I want to make my couples feel relaxed and I most certainly want them to enjoy their time.
These picture are quite deceiving. It looks like we did these pictures in the middle of May. Unfortunately, it was probably hovering around 40 degrees when we were out there. In that respect, no fun at all. I had to wear gloves during the whole session and I was still cold. I really felt for them but they were good sports about it.
All in all, this is a really great couple. Spending time with them was like spending time with old friends. Genuine laughs and smiles all around. I hope to be part of their wedding someday 👰🏻🤵🏼.
