I swear every time a couple immediately tells me they need a lot of direction and are super awkward, they really aren’t. They think they are cause they don’t know what to do but give them something to do and they’ll rock the entire session like complete naturals. They laugh and cuddle. They think they’re bad at this so they don’t try to hard which is so important. Just relax and have fun, don’t worry about anything else.
Lauren + Alex recently moved from Kansas to Seattle and knew right away they had to have their photos in the mountains cause Kansas doesn’t look like that haha. I threw out some ideas of locations and immediately they wanted Diablo Lake and we planned for it unsure of what the weather might be this time of year. We ended up moving the session up a day earlier cause our original day was calling for 12-14” of snow! It ended up being perfect. Didn’t even rain. The clouds hid the mountains a little but such a fun spot up on a little cliff in the “American Alps.” And sure enough give them something to do and they killed it. Even just walking towards me. Total babes and any second he could, Alex, would compliment Lauren or tell her he loved her. It was so sweet! C’mon how cute are these two?!
I loooooove these photos! They’re fun and romantic. Sometimes at the same time! I messed around with creating multiple exposure images in camera and some reflection images using my phone to create the reflection. We did so much in such a short amount of time, I’m so stoked. And going the extra distance to a cool location is so worth it! Ah check these out!!!
CONGRATULATIONS you two!!! Wishing you all the love and happiness in the world!!!
