This session was jam-packed full of newness for me.
Firstly, I had never met Andrea and Chris before. And they weren’t one of my typical wedding couples; ready for their engagement photos. They had been to together for 3 years and Andrea thought it would be nice to surprise Chris with a photo session; they had never had their photos done professionally before. Secondly, I had never shot in Uptown Waterloo before, making it my first photography outing and forcing to me “fly by the seat of my pants” (which I kind of like 😉 ).
Fresh faces, fresh locations. But the one thing I ALWAYS try to express is the CONNECTION and did they ever do that wonderfully.
Andrea and Chris were SO easy to work with and I think it shows in the photos. Their happiness and comfort and affection shine through every photo. There is an ease to these photos like they were letting me see into their relationship, if only for an hour. The truth is, the location, lighting, outfits, etc. didn’t matter in this session because they let themselves and their relationship show through it all.
It was a pleasure photographing this lovely couple and I hope I will get to do it again in the future. And who knows? Maybe next time they will be one of my wedding couples…
