Six weeks ago, when I sat down with Rebecca, I didn’t know anything about her or her fiancé Donnie. I wasn’t sure what to expect from our first meeting at all! Were they eclectic? Quiet? Fun-loving? Loud? Laid-back? Quirky? Romantic? Shy? A confusing combination of them all?
Rebecca and I had intended to discuss details for the shoot, and I was hoping to also get the chance to find out about her and Donnie’s story. I had a few questions mapped out, and I knew she did too, so I assumed we’d meet for maybe an hour.
We ended up spending well over three hours chatting about writing, history, and other shared interests over coffee! I came out of the meeting with not only a great client, but also a new friend.
Now, flash forward to the actual session, last Saturday. It was a lovely, sunny day, and I really enjoyed spending the evening photographing this sweet couple. The autumn colors were magical, the day was warm, and a strong breeze kept it crisp enough to feel like October.
Donnie and Rebecca, thank you for inviting me to capture this special time in your relationship. You both have incredible senses of humor, love of life, and love for each other. I wish you all the best for the rest of your engagement, and the rest of your lives!
