Some of my brides and grooms are a little nervous about being in front of the camera and that’s totally fine……it’s my job to ease them in to it and help them see that it’s really not so bad and can actually be a lot of fun. And seriously, there’s nothing wrong with being nervous….I totally freeze up and become a complete weirdo when a camera is pointed at me. I can tell other people what to do with their body, but when it comes to me…..what do I do with my hands?!…..I can’t make a serious face, I just look depressed or angry!…..why does my chest get so red and splotchy?? I’m a hot mess.
And then there’s Lindsay and Scott……complete opposite! Lindsay was the cutest, giddiest, most excited person to have her and Scott’s engagement photos done. I LOVED it! I could tell that she had been studying my photos because she knew exactly what to do when I asked for sultry or smitten and all the weird other words I might throw out. And Scott….well Scott was happily along for the ride 😉 But he ended up having fun too at my expense and making fun of me whenever I told them to cuddle or nuzzle. Brat 😉 I really did have a blast walking around the waterfront in downtown Annapolis with these two. Even when I got us kicked out of a private marina. Oops. Whatever…..totally worth it because what we were able to grab before the kicking out is some of my favorite stuff from the session! I would do it again Mr. Yacht Club worker!
Anyway, I can’t wait for their wedding in a few months at Circle D Farm where, Scott, you’ll be doing some more cuddling and nuzzling!!
