I have never done a photo shoot without meeting the couple first so I was nervous and on top of that had giggly babble for a little while until my brain and mouth came to an understanding lol. But from the moment I met Justin and Chasta, we clicked right away and they understood what I was saying lol. They are such a beautiful couple inside and out. Since Chasta got her way and put Justin in a suit; Justin got his way with having the photo shoot in a forestry area, which worked for me very well. We laughed, told jokes, made faces and oh boy! And laughed some more. Can’t wait for their wedding in 2018 and all the goodies that they are planning!
When Zhanna and Ivan asked me to do their engagement session, I was so excited! They were imagining a waterfall back drop with a beautiful dress and a sleek suit. We started our trip up to “Looking Falls” in Asheville North Carolina, the forecast was predicted to be rainy, and so we wanted to get there before it started to rain. When we got there, the scenery was absolutely breath taking not to mention that our breaths were literally taken away because it was so cold. I was so impressed with Zhanna and her ability to climb around the wet rocks, logs and walls in her gorgeous red dress. For the 2nd outfit we decided to drive a little bit away from the falls in the hopes that it would be a little warmer, and to our relief it was. Still frozen from the falls we pulled out a fuzzy black blanket which ended up warming them up and complimenting her outfit. Finding a beautiful bridge pretty much in the middle of nowhere, and a fun little picnic area, where we completed the engagement photo shoot. It’s sad to say that I won’t be able to shoot their wedding in June, but I can’t wait to see Zhanna and Ivan’s wedding. From what Zhanna has showed me, everything will be perfectly beautiful. Congratulations you two love birds!! It was an honor capturing your love story and I had an absolute blast working with you two.
