Underwood, Washington Photography
I love all of my clients, but I have to honestly say that his session was by far the most fun I’ve had behind the camera. I took a drive over to Underwood, WA one Friday afternoon to do one of my first Washington Photography sessions. I’ve never been up that high, but I must admit that it had some amazing views of the Gorge. There couldn’t have been a better location if I had picked it myself. This is why it is so great when a couple has a location in mind. I can come up with something, but this place was on their family land. It meant so much more to them because it has meaning.
We decided to make it a little earlier in the afternoon due to the clouds and the lack of light in the winter. It ended up being the best decision. We basically lucked out with a brief golden hour and took advantage of it while we had it. I must say though, that the before and after golden hour photos still turned out to be pretty wonderful.
With all of this said, this is not why this is my favorite session of all time. I was testing out new posing ideas with these two and they took every word I said and ran with it. They danced, hugged, ran, twirled, jumped and did basically anything that I could come up with. Now I don’t have them do these things to necessarily get photos of them running. I do it because of the pure and true reactions I get after that particular prompt. Because they were into doing all of these things, it made for genuine reactions and fun.
“It was like a fun date event with you!!”
These two taught me a lot about posing and I couldn’t have asked for better clients to test my new ideas out on. After the fact, I even received the best compliment that I could have ever asked for. “We had so much fun shooting with you. Normally photo shoots are so stiff…it was like a fun date event with you!!” I couldn’t have been more pleased with the photos myself and to have received this message made every moment of it worth it. I love what I do and I love when I can make couples feel this way.
If you are this kind of couple, I’d love to spend some time with you. Please hit me up and let’s go have a fun date event. We’ll just pretend like I’m not there. Enjoy some of my favorites.
