Spending quite a bit of time with Lis these days. We have shot together for every session we could and Lis is Soo easy to pose and photograph… sigh. She has that model quality to her. When we shoot models, models are always switching it up… moving their faces, their stances, their hands…. they are aware of all the things a camera looks for.. lighting, angles, lines, etc. Well Lis naturally would do this. She would hear the shutter and she would automatically begin to re position herself. She was really awesome..
I have been behind is editing and posting, so I am going to post her and Gene’s engagement session and she told me today that Gene has no idea about my sites and that he would never find her bridal pics. I hope she didn’t underestimate his google capabilities. So I am going to include both sessions.
I have to say…. I know guys don’t really look forward to their engagement sessions and I keep that in mind when I shoot. Men don’t like looking stupid so I try to keep in the back of my mind their cool ness.. and most guys tell me afterwards they didn’t really mind the shoot b/c there wasn’t all this cheesey, fake smiling… So, check out the super cool Gene.
This statue is where Gene proposed. I like how the angel is looking down at them… approvingly, of course!!
And now onto the bridals, which we did today…Lis wasn’t feeling great but she still looked like a million bucks.
I love the romantic grainy ness here… It was really sunnier than I had hoped for, but once in a while the sun would go in and we were ‘golden’.
And I realize this look isn’t for everyone… some will think it’s dark and dreary, but in another essence it’s dramatic and moody.. and Lis can pull off drama undoubtedly.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to get her on the ground or not. She had talked to someone at the boutique she got the gown and asked about cleaning after the shoot and they read her the riot act about ”trying” to clean it. So she was of course extremely apprehensive about getting the dress dirty.. but for being outside all day in and out of sprinkling.. that dress stayed pretty clean, I must say!
The wind was def. in our favor.
That’s a whole lottaLIS…….. she’s gorgeous and can’t wait for the big day to see how radiant she is!! xoxoxo
Way past the bedtime. Night folks.
