Daphné and Steve are actually a couple that I know quite well…Daphné is my little sister and Steve is my brother-in-law. Daphné has been wanting to take pictures with Steve for a long time now, but he was always hesitant to get in front of the camera (I’m not sure why, they’re a gorgeous looking couple!) Anyway, we finally managed to get him to agree one Saturday night (with a bit of liquid courage, ha!), and I am so glad that we did, because the shoot turned out magical!
Now, Daf and Steve aren’t the most ‘lovey dovey’ couple out there, at least not in public, but you can see how much they love being together by the way they look and smile at each other, they can’t seem to help it. They’ve been together almost as long as my husband and I have (about 7 years) and will be celebrating their 2 year wedding anniversary in August, and I’m so happy to have captured these images for them.
We had the shoot around their amazing property; I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, I am so LUCKY to live in such a beautiful area, there is absolutely no need to ever be inside (when the weather is good of course!), because these natural backdrops enhance the photos in ways I never could. Natural light, fresh air, gorgeous landscapes, real people and everyday moments, these are the elements of a beautiful shoot for me. We went to an old barn, a field, and down by the river that runs along their backyard, it was a really great night.
The light was insane down by the river, tucked between the rocks, peeking around the trees…it made me giddy.
And of course, I needed to get a family shot with the kiddos (Quincy, Nemo and Princess Boy).
I love photographing couples, and hope to do more soon!
Up next though, an adorable session I had with a little blond-haired, blue-eyed boy, oh my.
