Take an engaged couple who are affectionate, relaxed, sociable, fun, and up for anything, and you get portraits that are totally awesome. Good thing all my clients are like this, especially so with Megan and Jim. We went around Sodus Point and Sodus NY to take these engagement portraits (even did some portraits on the pier and the beach, along with their boat) and created some real art this evening. Weather and light were spot on perfect too... couldn't have gone smoother. I look forward to shooting their wedding next year!!
Some of the fellow boaters who knew them both photobombed us when they were walking by
While this photo is nice, it also has a little extra meaning. One of the things that I do for clients is create images that have "insider meaning" for just them or their close circles of friends and family. This private knowledge adds tremendous personal value for them.
In the background of this photo is Chimney Bluffs, where the ashes of Jim's mother were spread. They grew up in the Sodus area and this location is a perfect spot on Sodus bay to commemorate the memory of her in the engagement portrait session.
Thanks guys for an awesome session!
