Holy moly, talk about hitting the ground running - we had INCREDIBLE light right off the bat for Michelle and Michael's engagement shoot. And these two absolutely followed suit by utterly lovin' it up on camera without even a hint of reservation.
This photo below? Pinch. Zoom. Click it. Whatever, just blow it up - check out the amazing little rain droplets that were shaking out of the tree above from the earlier thunderstorm. Dreamy, dreamy, dreamy!
Sometimes it takes a little bit of a warmup to get everyone (and generally more so for our dudefolks) to really be themselves on camera, especially for something like an engagement shoot in public. Michael's super solid advice was to just to be extra flirty with your lady like no one is within a ten mile radius and your life depends on it. And then, you know, when you're reminded that there's actually some paparazzi-style frenzied clicking going on, take heed of what your photographer shouts out to you!
After knocking our downtown portion of the shout outta the park, we headed to the Naval Academy bridge to grab the sunset and...wow. What a good one it was!
I absolutely loved working with these two - constant love and laughter, and I am *so* excited for their wedding next year! -MEJ
