Is this a personal or client photography session?
This session was client work.
What about this session was most memorable?
I pretty much called the groom “Bob” the entire session – his name was Mirsad – he graciously accepted his new name with a smile! Of course, I couldn’t get past their affection for each other. They were just beautiful people to photograph – which made this session memorable.
Where there any significant hurdles?
Chasing the sunset with so many good locations to shoot was difficult. We only had 10 minutes to win it or lose it! I was able to get the pictures nevertheless.
Your best photographer/session advice?
Plan it well! Meet with the client over coffee and set up another appointment on location to see if you both like it. The bride to be and I planned everything from the location to outfits to what kind of lighting we both wanted for this session. In the end, we were all happy campers!
What gear was used to achieve these?
I used my Canon 6D, with 70-200mm 2.8 and 50mm 1.2
About the photographer:
I am an avid reader and writer. I am a mother, a wife to a wonderful God fearing man, and a passionate follower of Jesus Christ. My God and family comes first.
My love of photography began when I was only 16. I worked in a dark room where we processed film photographs. Even though at the time I could not afford a camera, my passion for photography remained on the inside. I eventually purchased my first Pentax camera with the help of my grandfather. I am a self taught photographer with a flair for photographing children and their families. My passion is lifestyle photography – children, newborns and maternity mostly. My approach is more of a photo-journalistic style where I strive to capture a lot of natural poses and emotions with natural light.
I was a subject for many photographers over the years. I loved being in front of the camera, but more importantly, I developed a passion for being behind it.
