Earlier this year, I was asked by Joyce to help style a couple for an engagement shoot that was going to be featured on Bridal Hot List. This was exciting because even though I have worked with Manya for several years, this was the first time I get to see her as a photographer. She’s crossed over!!! =)
I had an amazing time meeting so many new vendors and working with a team to build some amazing images together. The best part, the couple was not some hired models, but it was a real couple that was in love. This made it all more fun and enjoyable.
This was definitely a challenging shoot because I was limited on space and power. The hair and makeup was all going to happen from the parking lot of park we were at. Not only had to pack conservatively, but also tables, chairs, stools, and a power adapter to allow my car to power up my curling irons. Blow dryer was OUT of the question. So we had to make-do w/ what we can.
Josh and Jaquelynn had a nice long time to tell me their little love story. It’s so refreshing to see young love! These two have been together since high school. I know… so rare to see high school sweethearts these days. Watching these two interact and talk about their relationship really brings so much love in the air. My favorite part was when Josh got to sit there w/ us and chit chat but was forced to look the opposite way. So Jaquelynn could surprise him w/ her final look. Like a first look type of deal. And his expression was priceless.
I’ve posted a few photos that I really liked but to see more you can go to Bridal Hot List feature:http://bridalhotlist.com/valentines-day-inspired-picnic-styled-shoot-3016606/
