Lakesha and Keltric met up with me at Junkman’s daughter in Little Five Point and I knew instantly that it was going to be a fun session. Don’t get me wrong, they had the usual jitters about being stalked by a camera while trying to act natural but it only lasted for about….um…5 seconds. They are absolute naturals and Keltric keeps her laughing with his great sense of humor which makes it all the more fun.
Engagement sessions are such an important time for me and my clients as it helps us both to get to know each other a little as far as being in front of and behind the camera. I get to see how well they shoot, like if the need a little or a lot of direction and they get to see that I’m a really fun photographer and together we can take great images. it puts them at ease so that when I show up on the wedding day, they feel like their friend has arrived and there’s no need to worry or be uptight.
After strolling around town a bit we did a wardrobe change and grabbed some balloons and a picnic basket and headed for the park. They are serious wine connoisseurs so I thought it would be perfect to incorporate into their photos.
They will be getting married next May and the fabulous Wedding Soiree will be running the show so I know it’s going to be AWESOME.
Lakesha and Keltric, I’m so excited to be a part of your wedding, you two have a very exciting energy about you and I had so much fun. Can’t wait till May 2010!
