I wanted to take a different approach with Nick and Karen’s engagement photos The last time I did an engagement shoot, I had been single for over 12 years. Now that I have a boyfriend, I have grown a heart. 🙂 A famous photographer said, “Your camera should be an extension of your heart, you should see yourself in your photos.”
I told Nick and Karen that I would take them out on a date and be their personal paparazzi. What I noticed first was the way Karen looked at Nick. And I wouldn’t noticed that if I had never looked at my boyfriend that way. For the first time, these two camera shy people allowed me in to their little world.
I grew up with Nick, I remember him as a baby in his walker! Now here I am seeing him in love and ready to be married. Next week is the big day, and this engagement shoot help me grow trust with them. Even though they booked me last minute, I wanted to capture them on a date, to remind them of the beginning of the rest of their lives.
