Road trips are always fun with these two. Granted, the only ones that we have been on have involved us driving together to a venue for shooting, but the ride is always worth it! Our conversation goes from marriage, to theology, to marriage, to theology, etc. Those are two of my favorite subjects! So I had a blast, myself.
The first place we stopped was a local park, and you can’t tell from the images, but we were right next to a road where bicyclists and all manner of joggers and walkers were going by! I’m sure they enjoyed the show that these two put on!
The above image is what happens when you tell them, “Throw up your gangsta face!” Anyway… 😉
Here are some of my personal favorites from the start of the shoot at Cherokee Park.
The only downside (if you can even call it that) was that we wanted to get some images of the clouds in the sky at sunset. That evening, the sky was a beautiful blue, and the clouds formed a large ripple effect against the whites and yellows of the clouds. So we drove over to the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (my usual stomping grounds) for some shots with not only the beautiful sky, but the red-brick buildings, as well.
And then, I had some sort of personal epiphany when I noticed these gorgeous red bushes! So I say to Madeline and Jonathan, “Get in those bushes!” And they happily obliged without even the slightest hesitation! Team players, they are. And the image that came out of those bushes was my favorite from the entire session. What do you think?
I love these guys, and I’m so excited to photograph their wedding this September! It’s going to be fun, so keep your eye on my blog for some beautiful images from their big day!
