Creating engagement pictures with a couple is a treat. As a photographer I’m handed the keys to create a romantic story of what it might be like to be around them for a few hours. Or if maybe you could secretly peer into a life they envision. Maybe not just their everyday affections, but even whimsical idea’s of a future beyond together. I like to mix the everyday textures that appeal to my couples with my more cinematic, dreamier pictures as if you were to see right into a world beyond they feel with each other. As if everything has faded away and it’s just the two of them. When people are happy, they relax and open up. Ideas and creativity flow and it’s almost like we’ve awoken. Love does that. It changes us, makes us deeper, in the moment, and appreciate right where we are. You can see that with Wendi and Stephen and it was joy to create this small slice of their life with them. Oh, by the way, Stephen’s last name is Kiss!
