It’s Friday, the sun is shining and I have some fabulous photos to share with you guys. Jordan and Jess contacted me to see if we could plan a shoot and when I got their email I jumped for joy. I love to do what I have referred to before as “anniversary sessions” or engagement style shoots for people that are married. It’s amazing what a few years of marriage will do for a couple – they know each other so well, have no pressure of wedding planning and the stress that can go along with that, and aren’t afraid to have fun in front of the camera.
Now I love sessions with a great theme, prop or story but there are times when keeping it simple works best. Good light, location and a couple in love are all you really need to make it work and with this session we had all of that and more. Jordan and Jess were traveling from California to New York just so they could have photos taken with me – ok, that’s not true they were visiting Jordan’s family in Rochester – so we decided to focus on location over theme and story to make things work.
With thunderstorm warnings and impending rain it looked like weather would get in our way but the evening we ended up with was perfect. The stars aligned and everything came together as Rochester looked it’s best with lilacs in full bloom. I had such a great time photographing Jordan and Jess who were naturals in front of the camera and am so glad they came out to Rochester… but I’m okay if next time you want to do the shoot in California!
Look at those Louboutin’s. The sun set although the night was young and we wrapped things up right there on the water’s edge. Mark this one down as a success.
