beautiful contrast

had the pleasure of photographing Megan and Evelyn recently.
they brought their doggies along with them, mother nature brought the fall colors ablaze, and i couldn’t help but run to bare negative space walls to emphasize the beauty of their visual contrast. lovely couple and portrait session.

psst. hey. pull over. i want to marry you.

“hey! i like your car! pull over!”
and so began the story of Hillary and David.
later, David would ask her another question, a question that would be answered by a wedding dress, rings, and riding in sporty bucket seats through life together.

the couple wanted me to photograph them in the woods and said nothing about a car.
i found out that this is how they met and jumped all over the cuteness with my camera.
