One of my first photography sessions was very close to my heart. My younger sister, Sarah, and her-now husand-Steve, needed engagement photos taken. Sarah and Steve didn’t have many photos together and have never been interested in taking any. Given that they needed some for newspaper announcements and save-the-dates, they asked me to grab my camera and give it a go. We had fifteen minutes until we completely lost the sun, it was freezing cold, and her two dogs were NOT interested in being photographed. Nothing like a trial by fire!
We pulled into a little park and snapped some quick shots. It was awkward, rushed, and so much fun. Steve was a total hoot and watching him interact with Sarah melted my heart. They are such a well-matched pair. It was comforting to think, as I stood there snapping away, that this man was going to marry my sister. Their wedding day has come and gone, but I still love looking back at this amazing session.
