The sun was shining, the leaves were in full color, and it was just a beautiful day to be at Hartwood Acres! So did everybody else 😉
Before I go into how awesome Casey & Tyler are I have to admit something. When we arrived at Hartwood, my stomach dropped, and a mild case of panic swept over me. Why? SO MANY PEOPLE!! I knew to expect this particular location to be busy, but it was insane that day!!
Now going into a situation like this I know I don’t need much room to photograph two people. The problem was finding good lighting and staying out of peoples way. So what we ended up doing was waiting our turn for the light! Hahaha! I even had a little boy who was getting his family photos taken try to join us in our photos!
But what made this a great experience was that Casey & Tyler never freaked out! We were able to take our time and walk around the grounds finding what would work and what wouldn’t. But it also gave us a chance to talk and get to know one another. And that is my 2nd favorite part of an engagement session! First would be dynamite images!
We found our groove quickly, and I instantly saw what made Casey & Tyler a couple. You could clearly see the connection. Laughter, patience, how they spoke to one another, how when one smiled the other smiled. Even their personal “pinky kiss.” This is what makes them ….them! And no amount of posing or coaching could authentically show this connection.
And THAT’S why I love what I do!
