Susie and Dan at Tryon Creek State Park and Lewis & Clark College
Still playing catch up with my blogging – this one is from last April – another engagement shoot in preparation for a May wedding. We met first at Tryon Creek State Park – just down the road from my alma mater, and a place I knew to be cool and shady on a warm day such as we had been enjoying that weekend.
Susie and Dan are so fun to work with for many reasons – for one, they are very comfortable in front of a camera, and comfortable with each other and expressing their affection, humor and obvious joy and love for each other.
However, sometimes the best shots aren’t planned – we came across a log, and they decided to clown around a bit…
In fact, their fun-loving personalities really made the time spent shooting enjoyable – they’d been taking dancing lessons, and were eager to show off their mad skills when we moved our shoot to Lewis & Clark College campus.
But despite the horsing around, it was easy to see how deeply in love these two were – they have an energy together that’s great to be around and I had such a good time trying to capture the little moments between them that spoke of their sweet connection.
After reviewing these photos, I looked forward to being there at their wedding to capture more of their obvious happiness in life and each other.
