Let me tell you, it feels good to…feel good again! We had actually shot this engagement shoot B.C. (what my wife refers to as “before the crash) and am just now able to finish editing it. I appreciate all of your thoughts and especially your prayers through a very intense time but God has spared my life and for that I am truly grateful. (For those who have no idea what I am talking about, I am currently recovering from a plane crash, but doing well!)
Anyway, this is James and Amy. We met with Amy to discuss shooting her wedding early in January and we hit it off. After talking we realized we had a lot in common and we left excited about their upcoming wedding. We were also very excited to do an engagement shoot with them. I love doing engagement shoots. It allows us to spend time with the couple getting to know them, them getting to know us and everyone getting comfortable with each other before their big day.
Amy wanted to do the pictures in Columbus and had already scouted out some great locations. We started out downtown, then traveled to Cummins where there were some gorgous dogwood trees in bloom. We almost had an adventure when my wife wanted to shake some flowers down on the couple for a “romantic feel” to the shoot. She began to pull on the branches and I feared that she was going to break a particularly large branch down on the couple. As you will see, we weren’t able to shoot the “magical moment” she had in mind, but we did get some just as spectacular ones regardless.
We ended our session at Millrace Park and they brought T-shirts with their date on the back for Save the Date cards. How cool! This was the most creative way to spell out the date we have shot to this day. It was an amazing day and I know my wife and I cannot wait for their wedding! Here are some of our favorite shots.
