I went to downtown San Diego last night to photograph an engagement session with Ryan and Rebecca. This was one of those sessions where I didn't want to stop shooting. When we were discussing the session Rebecca mentioned the intro to the TV show "Mad About You" and how the photo montage at the beginning showed the couple on the show just being themselves. This is the exact idea that I think engagement sessions (or any session) should be about and it was extremely awesome to have a client bring that idea to me instead of the other way around. Ryan and Rebecca were so comfortable being photographed that it was like working with two professional models. (actually the models I do work with are rarely this good...)
In order to photograph them being themselves we walked around Downtown and just casually shot them at them at the location of their first date, their favorite wine bar, etc. It was cool to be able to listen to them remissness about these places and really get to know them better. Their wedding is going to be ridiculously fun to shoot.
