It’s been a while since I’ve photographed an engagement session at beautiful Maymont Park. Meeting Ryan and Danielle there was perfect even though I totally forgot that Maymont closes so early! We heard a reminder that the park would be closing soon and just as I started to feel a bit panicked, the clouds cleared, the sun started to shine and I was able to capture the most beautiful light before we unexpectedly had to leave the park!
We found out quickly that Ryan and Danielle aren’t phased by a last minute changes to the plan. We headed down the road to another park only to find that it was under construction… what are the chances?! I was frustrated, but quickly realized that this led me to shoot at a location that I had always passed throughout the years but had never felt like it was the right time to use it. You see, this spot was wide open. there were limited trees or diffused light and so normally, it’s not an ideal spot. This day was different. There was a slight haze in the sky and it made this location more ideal than it had ever been in the past! I’m thrilled with the outcome!
We loved our time with these two. Their engagement session resulted in gorgeous images and it also allowed us to have some really awesome time to get to know the two of them. Dani works in the science/research field and Ryan is in education. They are opposites in many ways, but there is one thing that we noticed that they share… they are both incredibly kind and easy to love. We could have talked to them for hours! It makes sense that they would have a massive guest list for their upcoming fall wedding. They shared with us that there is a sweet elderly couple who have seats in front of their seats at Red Sox games. They have become so close with them that they are actually traveling down to celebrate with them at their destination wedding!! How sweet?! We need more people in the world like Ryan and Danielle.
We can’t wait to celebrate these two in just a couple of months!! Enjoy their engagement portraits!!
This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
