Oh Deirdre & Jesse.....what can I say about Deirdre & Jesse. As soon as we met, we became good friends. I love to be involved in every aspect of my photo sessions, this engagement session was no different. In fact, I received messages daily from Deirdre, in the wee hours of the morning about hair, makeup, potential outfits and locations. By the time we got to their engagement session, I felt as though we had known each other for years.
I always ask my clients if they are comfortable with PDA(not a Personal Device Assistant), for this exact reason, it may not look as though we were on a busy street but it was super busy this Sunday evening.
For those of you who may not know Deirdre & Jesse have a beautiful little girl Olivia, so their mommy and daddy time is limited, and you'd think they'd be out of practice but that wasn't true in this case and I was privileged to have captured their love in camera.
Here is a peek at their mini family session that we incorporated into the photo session. How beautiful is Miss Olivia?
This gallery was shot in 2 different sessions, so on Day 2 we decided that the beach was the perfect place to capture the playfulness & intimacy between Deirdre & Jesse, as the beach is a great part of their summer fun.
This next group of photos is a montage to Jesse. In wedding photography, you always sacrifice the king for the queen. Jesse wasn't having that...he was always jokingly complaining that all of the pictures were of the back of his head. So this montage of photos were for him...just for you Jesse! LOL!!
" In life you'll realize there is a purpose for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, and some will teach you. But most importantly, some will bring out the best in you."
Last but not least..
Sometimes things like this just happen… (Yea, only in movies.) In my craft, I believe its important that everything about the photo makes sense, the attire, location, LIGHTING, and EMOTION. My most important obligation in a photograph is to get the emotion. Photography is so much more than the gear you use, there's a purpose, a story to be told. Deirdre and Jesse will have these photos for years to come, and their loved ones like Olivia, will appreciate and understand when she gets older. She'll be able to see that love exists, and that her parents always loved each other.
This is a photo of a couple that are truly in love... Enjoy!
