It's Valentine's Day, no better time to share some of my favorite love sessions then today. And one of my top favorite sessions ever happened with this lovely couple, Mollie and Kent. Last fall we met at Brown County State Park for their engagement session. It happened to be raining and overcast, very similar to the weather we are having today in Bloomington. But, we all decided to stick with it. And I'm so very glad we did. It helped create such a moody, beautiful setting, especially with their vintage bikes they brought. Looking forward to their timeless, classy wedding they are having in June!
It was so fun being sneaky. Standing there pretending to take pictures of another client while the cute couple walks up. And then bam, my camera turns to them and history is made. She said yes.
The details were all worked out before. He let me know what they would be wearing. He sent me a photo of the area it would take place at just so we could get exact location of where I would be standing and where he would get down on one knee. We considered lighting. Time of day. I had my staged client ready to follow the couple so she would have no idea I was actually there to take her pictures as this big event took place.
You guys, it couldn't have gone better. The weather. The timing (they were even a tad late, but it worked for the better because it was way less busy). The lighting. HER REACTION.
Joe and Lindsay were every bit adorable as they look in the pictures. And I was so thankful to be apart of such a special day. And their hearts of gratefulness just made them that much more awesome. Here is a little bit about what they had to say after I delivered the gallery to them:
These are AMAZING!! We can't thank you enough for capturing all of these moments on our special day! You are one of the sweetest people we've ever met and couldn't have asked for a better photographer.
Those words, they took the time to write, mean the world to me. It is such a blessing to be a part of preserving people's stories. To make time standstill in an image of where their season of life is taking them. To treasure and look back on.
And now I just want to do all the proposals. Anyone else ready to say "will you marry me?"
P.S. I totally asked Lindsay mascara she wore, because hello, gorgeous!
