Sometimes I get to photograph just grown-ups, and this can be surprisingly pleasant. They don’t run away from me or throw temper tantrums (usually), and they actually listen when I offer suggestions. Also, I don’t worry that they’ll fall into a pond while I’m changing lenses.
These two in particular were an absolute delight. The bride-to-be is not only impossibly lovely, she is also smart, sensible, and has the patience of a saint (trust me on this one: she’s my daughter’s piano teacher. Oh, yes, she’s also a talented musician!).
The groom-to-be is French, and so they are heading there—to an extremely old castle in France (sigh)—for their June wedding. Nice that they wore white in their engagement session photos because I’m already envisioning the stunning photo wall we’ll put together once they get their wedding photos: a combo engagement-in-China/wedding-in-France composition, with the white clothing tying it all together!
I am simply honored that they chose me to capture this amazing time in their lives, and I wish them a lifetime of making beautiful music together!
