When an engagement session consists of one person who loves photographs and being photographed and another who is quite the opposite, our work as photographers, you can imagine, can be quite daunting. However, with Zach and Kari, this dynamic of liking and not liking to be photographed actually turned out to be an amazing session. Zach is not a photo guy, but with a little help from Kristin and myself – a little direction to forget the camera and truly enjoy his fiancé Kari – Zach did wonderful. And of course, we cannot forget Kari who was just as terrific to work with. Kristin and I had a wonderful time with them both, and can’t wait to shoot their wedding next May.
Kristin's shot of Zach and Kari lying on the ground is great.
This last shot is less about the photo and more about the story - this is the spot where they first met many years ago when Kari was working as a hostess and Zach frequented this establishment. One terrific thing about photography is its ability to bring back memories - though they do not have a shot of their first meeting, they now have a way to bring back those memories in a special way.
