I went into this photoshoot a little bit nervous. “I’ve never shot people my parents age before. What do I do? How will they respond to me and my style? I don’t want to push them outside of their boundaries, but I still want to do the best job I can.” To be 110% honest, all of those worries dissolved about 5 minutes into our shoot. Donna & Mickey were game for whatever I asked.
They are family friends who found love later in life, and I am so honored and excited to be asked to photograph their wedding this coming August. This engagement shoot – on a beautiful June afternoon – reminded me that when we’re in love, we all act a little bit like teenagers. Lots of kissing, lots of joking and playing around, and lots of very visible emotion. It makes me even more excited for their wedding!
