Oregon Couples Session
We were just wandering around my in-laws property with friends that had flown into town for a long weekend. First off, is there anything better than visitors? It is pretty high on my list. Anyways, it was a slightly chilly overcast day, yet there was something so beautiful about the property. There was no beautiful light shining down and it most definitely was not golden hour. I feel like even if I try planning a shoot around that lovely sun, it lets me down. I’ve been embracing the not so perfect light and I am loving the growth that it is bringing to my photography style and skill. I was not disappointed one bit with how the session turned out. We just did a quick little mini oregon couples session on the side of the hill in the yellow grass.
I typically ask my clients questions regarding how they met, what their relationship is like, and really dig into their lives a little to get to know them. Well, when you know the couple, it can be a little different. I know all these details. I photographed their wedding and we were friends before that as well. Let’s just say, I had some fun coming up with a few new prompts that gave us some great shots. Having your friends do a quick mini session can be a fun way to add some excitement to a weekend. Looking for anyone to shoot even when it is for fun helps you grow. Using places and weather that are not ideal makes you a stronger and better photographer. That is what I keep striving to do.
Plus have I mentioned that shooting friends is one of my favorite things? I should also mention that I love making new friends. Being able to shoot a couple is a great way to do that because I ask questions that give my couples a real response and helps me get to know them.
