Smiling Is Good
There are some portrait sessions that go well because I am happy with the quality of photos that are produced. Then there are shoots that are successful because the clients are simply happy people. My anniversary shoot with Marilou and Erik Anderson was awesome because of both reasons.
Despite the early start, the Andersons were all smiles and laughs. As we started our day, I could tell that these two were prepared to have a good time.
We started our day as far away from other humans as we could get. Several days before, I scouted a location that was perfect for the Anderson's anniversary shoot. We were in nature and out of the way of the massive throngs found in urban areas.
After leisurely shooting on hills, near flowers and in creeks, we worked our way back to civilization. My clients were still smiling and I was impressed with how this couple was eager for more even after two hours of shooting. So we kept going.
After three hours of fun, we decided that call it a day. The Anderson's and I exchanged high fives and hugs. I was so pleased to be a part of this couple's special day. Happy anniversary Marilou and Erik! Thank you for choosing me as your anniversary photographer. Best of luck!
