I'm not going to lie, I was nervous for Christy and Bob's engagement session. They warned me before hand that it was hard to get him to smile for pictures. Once I saw them the day of the session, my nerves quickly faded. They were amazing to work with and they had so much fun with my prompts. They didn't look at me like I was crazy, they just WENT WITH IT. I didn't think it was hard to get him to smile or to get emotive images at all! I owe a lot of that to not being a "posey" photographer. I take a more natural, storytelling approach to portraits. I want to showcase your love, not have you plaster on fake uncomfortable smiles that look as forced as they feel.
I honestly could not be happier with how their images turned out. Their love is palpable. You can tell Bob adores Christy and she is just as smitten with him. I loved getting to know them. Hearing them talk about how they met. Christy telling funny stories, who kissed who; all the little details that make you a couple. Their portraits are nothing short of perfection and I am so glad I got the privilege to meet and work with this amazing couple.
Believe me when I tell you that I am BEYOND EXCITED for their September wedding <3
