I had the great opportunity to teach one of my videographer friends how to take better photos, and it was sooo much fun! It was so interesting to learn how what I do as a photographer varies so differently from what she does as a videographer! Just goes to show that each profession is so different and specialized! It was really fun for me, because I love talking about light, natural intimate posing, and letting the true essence of a couple shine through in the photos!
We chose the Salt Lake City Library as the location for this session, and it was perfect! It was lightly raining outside, so we were thankful for the cover it provided, but also – all the light!! The millions of windows were perfect for giving us nice filtered light. We had the cutest Jordyn + John model for us, and they absolutely nailed it! Don’t you just love their height difference?! My husband is a foot taller than me, so when I see couple’s with height differences like ours, I definitely have a special spot in my heart for them haha.
Jordyn and John knew of each other in High School, but never really dated. John got back from his LDS mission, and in his words “He won!” on getting Jordyn to be his wife since he was one of the first guys in their group of friends to return. I loved that he said that! You can tell that he truly treasures Jordyn by the way he treats her. And let’s not forget the fact that this shoot took twice as long as I estimated (oops, teaching takes a while haha), and he was still so nice about being there and modeling with his sweetheart. Awww. The two of them were so so cute together, as you’ll soon see! I just love letting a couple’s personality shine through, and letting that dictate how the session goes. It feels natural and intimate, and we capture photos that are full of meaning!
