Here is from an engagement session yesterday with Emily and Vic. Guess when their wedding is!
Actually, this session was supposed to take place last weekend, but the weather was acting as if it were late March/early April, which is to say cold, windy, and rainy. We though about doing it next weekend, when the weather is supposed to be 90-something, meaning that I would need a Gatorade I.V. Instead, we settled on the best evening possible…perfect sunlight, wonderful temperature, an excellent spot in the Azalea Garden all to ourselves.
Emily and Vic are friends with Hannah and Mitch, whose wedding I shot (and whose new-born I also got to take portraits of) a couple New Yearses ago…thanks to them for the referral! I had to scour the wedding pictures to see if Emily and Vic were in any of the shots, but somehow they seem to have escaped my camera for the evening. They will not be so lucky come August next.
Emily and Vic both love reading, and they brought along some of their favorite books. I was happy to see The World of Pooh in there, as that is a book that I sometimes read to my older daughter. Emily and Vic did a bit of reading, and then it was off to the Philadelphia Museum of Art…from lush vegetation to wonderful stone architecture, with a spiffing door and a skyline thrown in for good measure.
Love it. Another successful example of a couple who said, “We are dang awkward with cameras,” and who then proceeded to rock it out like old pros.
