Marc + Eiffel Save the Date Session

Long time friend and wedding photography mentor asked me to shoot his engagement/save the date photos. It was such a great feeling to feel trusted and it’s a reassurance that my work has come a long way in the past year.

Shooting outdoors, you gotta constantly keep up with the weather. At the beginning it was 65 degrees cloudy and 30% chance of rain, the day before 67 degrees 50% chance of rain, the day of, it said ZERO percent chance of rain and sunny. So we go ahead as planned and behold, its raining.

They were troopers despite the rain, trudging through the heavy mud and rain in the area. Eiffel and Marc, being the troopers they were, said to me, “We gotta do what we gotta do to get your shots despite the rain don’t we!” (Eiffel gracefully slips on flip flops from her already heavily muddied pumps and runs into the tree line. Kinda like a ‘Gung Ho!’ situation.) Goes to show how awesome of a couple they were to work with. =)

Thanks for being such awesome sports to work with! You guys did such a great job and it shows in the pix!! I can’t imagine what it would be like to be on the other side of my camera Marc! O.o
