Welcome to the engagement session for one of our wonderful 2020 couples, Tosha and Anthony! These two are some of the sweetest, most down to earth people you’ll ever meet.
As Tosha and I were planning in the weeks leading up to their e-sesh, she had no trouble deciding on a location: their backyard, which also happens to be Anthony’s childhood home! Now, as a photogapher, when I hear that a client wants to have their session in their backyard, one of my biggest concerns is making sure that they still have variety in their portrait backgrounds and locations. Begin the brainstorming! Clearly however, I did NOT need to worry about this location at all! I mean, can we GET a more dreamy spot?!
Tosha and Anthony chose the perfect outfits for their session – right down to the killer heels Tosha wore while trekking through the woods! Props girl, I totally would’ve sprained an ankle at best!
On to the behind the scenes!
Usually one of the things that I talk about with my couples at the beginning of their session is trust…. The poses that look amazing in photographs, don’t always feel super natural (how often are you nuzzling in public?), and the best locations don’t always look so amazing in real life….
Not the case with these two! Halfway through their session, they got payback by asking me to trust them! Now, as a type A, probably not the easiest thing to do – but I think these two were more than worth it! Even if I had a hardcore NOPE moment at the beginning. 🙂
