Meet Lindsey and Graham. They are getting married next October in Goldsboro, NC and Dave and I are honored that we will be photographing their wedding! We got together a couple of weeks ago to shoot their engagement portraits at a pond that holds special memories for them. It was a very amusing shoot because Graham had never had professional pictures taken before so it took him a while to get comfortable. Ok, I take that back… he probably never got comfortable but he was a very good sport and humored us when we had an idea and he even contributed a couple ideas of his own. Lindsey and Graham are such a sweet couple and you can tell by the way they interact with one another, that they are best friends. They couldn’t have picked a better spot for fall engagement pictures! They picked Peacock Pond which is a private pond that is used for Boy Scout meetings/outings and Graham and Lindsey have spent a lot of time together there. It was such a neat little place with a pond and dock for fishing, and little covered kitchen shelter that had picnic tables and a hammock, and of course a campfire area. Beautiful light + changing fall leaves + a beautiful couple = HAPPY TARA! 🙂
Who doesn’t love a little hammock snuggle action?? Remember what I said about beautiful light? Love it! When Graham started to look visibly uncomfortable, I asked them to just be themselves and to interact with one another the way they would interact if we weren’t there. This is what happened! PERFECTION! These are the best kind of pictures when people just do what comes naturally because look at the real smiles that come out! This is exactly what I want to capture! I was absolutely in love with the reflections in this pond! They were so fun to play with!
Before we called it a day, I asked Graham and Lindsey to humor me and head over to a soybean field across the way. If I were in there shoes, I would probably think to myself, why does this crazy lady want us to take some pictures with soybeans but I think that it really paid off. I love the how the yellow coordinates so well with Lindsey’s orange jacket. Loved it!!
Lindsey and Graham, thank you for being such good sports! We had a lot of fun working with you guys and can’t wait for the wedding day! It will be beautiful!
