April and Erin are getting married in just about one year, but they were excited to get their wedding buzz started so I recently met them at their home in montpelier to do their engagement portrait session. My favorite E sessions are when I get to tell some of their love story- including pictures from where they live and places they enjoy being together.
It’s particularly fun for me to snoop around a couples’ home and photograph some of the telling little details that help narrate their lives together. With April and Erin, I learned their horoscopes, that they like to cook and love drinking coffee together in bed, that Erin loves fireflies and being barefoot, and that April likes bridges and always leaves her sox on!
For Erin and April, a perfect day together might include a walk downtown with a stop at Capitol Grounds, followed by a visit to one of their favorite parks or some time on the bike path. I loved spending the afternoon with them as they introduced me to some of their special places.
But the best part of doing an E session is just getting to know the couple and how they are together. Erin and April are both easy going and affectionate. They both have amazing smiles, particularly when they look at each other, so it was easy to make sweet and loving portraits. They start to nuzzle as soon as they get next to each other! Getting memorable pictures of them next June should be a piece of (wedding) cake!
Here’s a fun slideshow recapping my afternoon with April and Erin. It IS in FLASH, so you’ll need to either download a flash browser for your Ipad (try Puffin in the app store. (Its Free) or watch the slideshow on a laptop. (Please send all complaints to APPLE CUSTOMER SERVICE).
NOTE ABOUT SLIDESHOW:I’ve received several emails from clients and followers lately, telling me that they cant get the music to play on any of my blog slideshows. UGH!
After doing some research, I found out that Adobe has an active bug report listed on their site for their latest version of FLASH PLAYER (version 11.7) and they will hopefully fix the issue shortly.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
