They were unfazed by the rain, which fortunately only lasted a few minutes. My goal in an engagement session is to convey the personality of the couple’s relationship. Amanda and Zack’s relationship is marked by genuine laughter, intimacy, and an ease in being together. Engagement sessions usually last about two hours, and the time flies by as we travel to different locations and do wardrobe changes. Here we’re outside our Guilford studio. The sun comes out just in time to get some of Amanda’s favorite backlit images. One of our barns faces north and it’s our favorite place to get soft natural light portraits. These two are wonderful together. I love the bliss in this image. We did a series of intimate studio portraits to convey that aspect of their relationship as well as to show off their beautiful tattoos. We ended up with over 150 selected images from our two hours together! Congratulations you two! Leslie and I are really looking forward to photographing your wedding next week!
