Meet Danalee and Andy. These two….just these two. Danalee happens to be one of my nearest and dearest so I naturally love her. She truly has found her other half in Andy. They have come so far together and I watched their love unfold right before my eyes. They pushed through their fears, their own hesitations, to reach the destination of true love and devotion. They serve as an example of communication and sticktuitiveness. He makes her light up in a way I had never seen until he came along. She is a special one. Andy you really scored on her. For reals. I know she scored on you too Andy. :-). Danalee is a fellow yellow personality. She is more yellow than the best of us. Her engagement photography session vision included three locations all over creation. What the bride wants is what she gets and Andy was such a trooper sticking to it! We shot part of her engagements at the South Town Mall in Sandy on the carosoul, then at Sheels on the ferris wheel and then up to This is the Place where they held their reception. The 3 hour session and 3 hours of time was worth it after capturing this joy.
When Danalee showed up she was stressed. I reassured her that was definitely NOT her job! I reminded her she was paying me to stress for her! Look there, it’s like you can hire a maid to clean your house and a plumber to fix your toilet and a photographer to deal with your stress. :-). I tell all my clients to leave the stress at home and if they can’t do that then to give it to me because stress will kill your session and it’s not YOUR job to make you look good! It’s MINE! :-). And I promise I will.
Over the years I have learned one very important lesson. Every couple has a different kind of love. Every couple possesses a different kind of energy and chemistry. Some couples have fun, exciting, happy love. Other couples have sultry, sexy love. Then others have intellectual, grounding love. There are so many various types of love and chemistry. As I have photographed hundreds of couples over the last decade I’ve come to realize it is my job to determine the kind of love my couple has and mold into their chemistry rather than having my client trying to be something, do something or act something they are not. Call me for a consultation for your wedding or engagement photography and see if I have your date available.
Have a great day.
