It’s always a joy to spend time with a couple before we photograph their wedding day. Troy and I are shooting Clayton and Julia’s wedding at the Patrick C Haley Mansion in Joliet next summer. An engagement session always gives us the opportunity to get to know one another a bit more before the day of the wedding.
We had to reschedule twice because of rain; that’s not the easiest thing to do when your fiance lives in a different state, but we finally had SUN, and I wanted to build on that. My vision had always been sunshine, happy, carefree pictures so it wasn’t until halfway through our session that I asked them look seriously at the camera. Uh. Are you kidding me?
They can ROCK a serious face.
I couldn’t put my camera away.
I just had to keep shooting.
