There are few things I enjoy seeing more during an engagement session than a couple's complete shock at how casual and normal posing for photos can be. I'm not sure if these folks come into the session expecting me to move them up, down and around in awkward positions or if they're just bracing for the worst but after about five or so minutes of awkwardness, most of the bride and grooms-to-be that I work with feel a sense of comfort overcome them when they realize it's not going to be as bad as it seemed.
This was especially true for Brian and Sarah, whose October engagement session I photographed at Roger Williams Park in Providence.
Even though I assured them the session would be easier than they expected, it wasn't until a few minutes in that I saw them really start to enjoy themselves and, despite a somewhat rainy and cloudy day, we still put together one of my nicest sessions of the fall.
And, more importantly, this engagement session got me incredibly excited to shoot their upcoming wedding next June. Because if it's half as fun as this was, we're in for a great time.
As always, thanks for following and be sure to let me know what you think below.
