I met Jeff & Anne for the first time this summer on a special day - it was my birthday, AND it was Norah's first day of Mother's Day Out. My appointment with them as they interviewed me to consider hiring me to photograph their wedding in November was the delightful distraction that helped me make it through leaving Norah with "strangers" for the first time.
I was thrilled when I got word that Jeff & Anne had selected us to cover their wedding. We quickly decided on an October Engagement Session to take advantage of the cooler weather and changing leaves. Our original session was supposed to be last Thursday, when if you'll recall, it was 90 degrees and raining off and on all day. We were all so pleased to wake up to Fall-like weather this Thursday, and we knew our session would be just perfect!
A few of my favorite images from our shoot at Radnor Lake
Neither Anne nor I planned well on our shoe selection for the day. Her heeled sandals and my flip flops were not quite adequate for hiking the trails! But we survived.
My second favorite image from the day
We got off the trail to create this one.
This is my # favorite image from the day. One thing Jeff & Anne enjoy is praying together. I will interject that time spent in prayer with your husband (or wife) is more intimate than any other "married activity." This shot doesn't necessarily capture what they look like, but it captures their essence.
I had a lot of fun playing with the golden sweet light from the setting sun.
Quick clothing change and a few more shots.
Anne's face just radiates joy, and Jeff's antics keep her laughing... Actually, Jeff and I are both comfortable with being a little dorky at times. It's okay - we can handle it.
I am really looking forward to the wedding guys. It will be my last one of the season and I know we'll finish strong. Talk to you soon!
