You all are in for a treat…or a disaster, because this is Zach writing this blog post today and this is my first time doing so.
I have titled this entry, “Catching Snow” for good reason….and also because we are big Hunger Games fans.
In fact, Sarah doesn’t even know I am doing this. She will be surprised to see this blog post. Hi Sarah! :)
You might be asking yourself, “Why in the world is Zach doing this?!”
Let me explain.
BECAUSE SARAH WAS NOT AT THIS ENGAGEMENT SESSION!
Dun Dun Dunnnn.
It was all me. And I….was nervous.
You see, Sarah teaches part time at a local elementary school and she had “bus duty” this day.
And some of the children were waiting on their parents to pick them up late and so my lovely wife had to stay late.
So if you are one of those parents….shame on you! Just kiddin’….but seriously.
So back to this session. I am flying solo on this one. And like I said, I was nervous.
Sarah and I always shoot together and this was the first time I had shot an engagement session solo.
My mind is racing with a blur of ideas for this session.
And to make matters worse, it was getting REEEALLY cloudy this day.
Cloudy = less light/time for session.
Enter Harrison and Hayley.
Let me say that right off the bat, these two eased my nerves.
From the time we walked from the car to this field you see below, I knew this was going to be a good session.
You see, I feel that Sarah and I can spot when a couple is truly in love.
We can pose you or make you do silly things for photos, but there is nothing we can do or say to make you act or look truly in love.
And these two…well…they have it.
The bottom left pic equals canvas. No doubt. :)
Love this pic below. And I just noticed my foot is in this shot. Dang it!!!
Guys, I will edit this out before I send you the proofs. Ha!
I have only been around Harrison and Hayley for a short amount of time, but I feel that below is a true snapshot of them.
These two are so fun!
So, normally I would not post the next two pictures below.
But this is one of my favorite moments taking pictures and I feel that I should tell you about it.
If you cannot tell in some of the pics above it was actually starting to spit snow.
Were they calling for snow this day? Nope.
So as you can imagine, we were pretty shocked and excited…..and cold.
In the pic above, I wanted to try and get the snow in the picture.
And as you can barely see…there are hints of snow. I mean, it’s there….right?
So as they are cuddling and my index finger is frozen from pushing the shutter button, I yelled, “WE NEED MORE SNOW!”
Maybe ten seconds pass and then all of the sudden you could hear the sound of snow pellets hitting the leaves on the ground.
And by the time I looked up from the behind the camera, it was snowing and people, it was coming down!
Like I said, I normally wouldn’t post this picture below, but I love the look on Harrison’s face.
It was one of those, “Did that just happen?” moments.
I will not soon forget this moment or that sound of the snow. It was too cool. See what I did there? Cool? No. Anyone?
We were basically in a snow-globe. :)
Harrison and Hayley, I am so glad we “caught snow” for your engagement session! What are the chances?!
You two are great and we are so excited for your big day!
Hopefully, it won’t snow. :)
May the odds be ever in your favor.
