Engaged // Stacy & DJ

Photobucket

As a photographer, your job is to take great pictures, right? Right. But your job of just being a photographer isn't the end, you're also the coordinator, the stylist, the choreographer and hell, even a mathematician. I kid you not. I am forever playing with angles, depth of field, lighting and the mechanics of my camera: the shutter speed, f-stop and aperture, all to achieve a certain look. It can definitely get overwhelming at times, but having wonderful [and gorgeous, and photogenic, and fun and willing-to-try-anything] clients makes your job soooo much easier and all worth while.

A couple of weeks ago I shared a little sneak peek of Stacy and DJ's engagement shoot. Well now I have the rest of those images. Stacy and DJ's shoots (yes, we did multiple session) were absolutely effortless, and I do not throw that word around lightly. I mean, these two were absolutely adorable to watch and so easy to work with. Their love for each other is evident in every single picture. I loved editing every one (and when you've got over 100 images to edit well, now that's a lot of love).

I love it when clients know exactly what they want. Stacy had specific images she wanted to capture, and the fact that she wanted DJ and her pictured on top of a hay bail was downright awesome in my book.

Stacy, you are beautiful inside and out. You are going to knock 'em dead on your big day!

Now tell me, which one is your absolute favorite? I think the first picture shows how happy they really are together, but the last one sure is a show-stopper too!

  10. These photos are so great! I love the idea for the save the date.

    It definitely helps if people have an idea of what they want and are comfortable in front of a camera. I hate posing which makes me the photographers worst nightmare!
