These guys are the best!
Jason and Yolanda recently got engaged after 8 years of being together. When we first talked about getting engagement photos done, Yolanda told me that they have never taken pictures together as a couple. She has been wanting to so this is the perfect reason. For sentimental reason, she’d like to have photos taken at the location where they first met, which was Empire. Since the club has closed down and is now R& 15 and Ace of Spade, she wasn’t sure how it’ll look in photos. So several weeks before our shoot, I drove by there to scope out the place. When I saw a red brick building and lots of red umbrellas out on the veranda, I knew it was going to be perfect!
If you have been following me, you know that I always encourage couples to take pictures at locations that are meaningful to them. I really don’t mind if it is not the prettiest place or a well-known place. As long as it makes your photos that much more meaningful to you, I’d totally consider it.
A photoshoot with me is never complete without some kind of running shots, of course. The reason I always have couples run is because I want those natural laughter out of them. I want those laughing-out-loud moments. When you run, you don’t think if you look good or not. You just enjoy and live in the moment and that’s what it’s all about: Being happy!
