One of the best parts of being a photographer is learning the stories of my clients and how I can use my photography to help share that story. And one that I am excited to share is that of Tony and Tina through their engagement portraits. They really are a gem of a pair, kind hearted, welcoming, and it wasn't long before I felt like we were old friends. But irregardless of my connection to them, was the undeniable connection between the two of them.
We went out to the old ghost town of Nelson for their engagement portraits, making use of the varied desert and rustic environment for the session. I kept telling them how easy they were making my job, and it truly was my honest feelings. There is a special connection between the two of them, and when I learned that they were social in the same circles, it made perfect sense to me. Ironically, it wasn't until after they started dating that they realized how many times they were within inches of each other at social events. A quick look back at pictures on Facebook revealed each other in the background of photos of the other's photos! And it wasn't until the timing was perfect that they started dating, followed by a romantic proposal upon an LA hotel rooftop.
I simply adore these two. One of my favorite portraits from their session was inside an old schoolbus with blue interior. Love this shot!
Tony and Tina, I had a wonderful time with both of you. I wish you all my best at your wedding later this year!
