Last Saturday the alarm went off earlier then usual around our house . We had to get up and ready for Ashley and John’s early morning shoot! When I say early I mean early! 7 am to be exact. Ok ok, I know 7 am is not thaaat early for all you early risers, Cole included, who usually has put at least a few hours of work in before Chloe and I even get out of bed on the weekends. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not what you call a morning person however this shoot was really a great way to start our day! Ashley and John live steps away from Windansea and at that time of the morning everything was so calm and peaceful – a perfect way to start our shoot. We grabbed our Starbucks, complements of these two love birds, (thanks guys!) and off we went to begin what was to be one of the most enjoyable and easygoing engagement shoots we have had the pleasure of doing. I really love seeing and feeling the chemistry a couple shares. It’s a very quick glimpse into who they are as individuals and who they are as a couple – Cole and I always try to showcase that connection into our couples photos. I think Cole and I really captured the essence of who Ashley and John are as a couple and I feel you really see the energy and love they have for one another.
These two really got a feel for the camera after the first few shots and by the second location they were naturals! Because Ashley and John’s place was so close it gave us the opportunity to regroup and do several outfit changes throughout the session. Besides that, Cole got to play a little guitar while we waited in between outfit changes. I need to mention that John was a little apprehensive about being in front of the camera in our initial meeting but I think all four of us can agree John had a pretty good time when it was all said and done! Your smiling on the inside John! 🙂
Ashley and John, thanks for making our jobs so easy. Cole and I genuinely enjoyed our time with you and cant wait to do it again on the wedding day!
