Green Eyes…aka…The absolute opposite of my eye color, a great Cold Play song, as well as what made National Geographic a phenomenon around the world. Dawn, my bride for the day has the most incredible eyes I’ve ever seen in real life. They are completely enchanting. And since it’s said (well, at least in the photography world) that eyes make the picture you can say I was a little excited to get to shoot Dawn.
I’d have to say my favorite part of the day was when we had a little extra time and thought we’d experiment with some pictures near a window in her house. My guess is my inner monologue of “holy cow, that was sweet” became more of an outer-monologue because she asked if she could see one of the pictures. So I turned my camera so she could see my monitor of the last image taken and when I looked up those beautiful eyes of hers had tears in them. So what was the picture of? Her eyes of course! (:
After setting the record for the longest engagement session I’ve ever done (by far!) I had already really gotten to know these two. They have a sense of care for people that is so rare and I truly am privileged to have gotten to spend so much time with them over the past year. They are having a second wedding in Thailand (Where Kanlaya is from) and I want to forewarn them to check their suitcases….I just may be hiding out in there. (:
(Notice the reflection? Was glad it turned out) (:
The most exciting part about shooting children is they bring the un-expected factor. You have absolutely no idea what’s about to happen or be said. Typically, it comes in the form of chaos and random comments that make me chuckle inside, but the unexpected with this family, was not only how beautiful they are but how well behaved the kids were! I dunno, I guess I haven’t had that in quite awhile, it was refreshing to see.
So Gap…When you’re hiring, look me up, and my first gig can be shooting these beautiful faces. Ok? Thanks. (:
