Last summer, I met up with Alyssa & Troy in downtown Southern Pines, NC for a fun filled engagement session. I am very excited to say that after our session, Alyssa and Troy asked me to photograph their wedding in May of 2019 at the Hillendale Country Club in Phoenix, MD. It's always an honor and a joy to travel for my client's weddings. I love getting to see new places and meet folks all over the country!
Alyssa & Troy spent the whole engagement session laughing and joking around with each other. Their joy was contagious and I loved getting to know them through our session.
It's sessions like this one that I live for. Being a part of my couple's love story, even in just a small way, is such an honor. I strive to be connected to them in more than just a transactional way. Yes, I am doing a service for them, but its a service that is also very personal. I capture the best images when the couples feel at ease and open to be themselves with me.
My secret is silly games and getting my couples laughing together. This helps work through the nerves they might be feeling about being on camera and allows for me to capture their natural flow with each other, rather than stiff poses.
Alyssa's makeup was done by Brittany Campbell at Sunshine Beauty and Bliss.
