2010–Best Couples Sessions

Posted in Couples |


During 2010 I had the chance to photograph some amazing couples.  Couples sessions might very well be my favorite thing to photograph.  The appeal of photographing couples before their wedding day is two-fold.  First, I love building rapport with clients and second, I love taking artistic and unique photos to illustrate the love between two people.  From the start, I like to educate my client that an engagement session is not a chance to…”go to the local park wearing matching green polo shirts and khaki pants” for photos.  I don’t want my couples to stand stiffly and pose with plastic smiles as I snap pictures of them.  I encourage my clients to brainstorm locations that fit their personality.  I want the session to be a memorable event during the wedding process.  The whole goal of this session is to capture the relationship of two people.  I look forward to more couples sessions during 2011, but here’s a look at some of my favorite images from 2010…

Out of curiosity….does anyone have a favorite?

    Well, I’m a little partial to #18 – the kind of sepia one that Pioneer Woman loved because that’s how I found you! But I love #2 – for the guy walking in front of the shot and how he can’t help but look at the two lovers. I love #5 – for composition and the snow. I love #8 – again for composition (barely seeing his face) it’s like sharing a secret with her. I love # 12 – because of the lighting and is it raining?! It’s just magical. I love #15, #28 & #30 – EVERYTHING about them – you did such a fantastic job of capturing them in a real moment and it’s like you, the photographer, isn’t even there! I love #17 – for it’s perfect imperfection!

    Come to Atlanta and teach a seminar!
