It's always such a huge compliment when another photographer chooses you to document their moments. This Groom-to-Be is Austin of Austin Parrish Photography! He has shot a few weddings with me, so he totally knows my methods and posing tricks. I think this means he had an easier time than most guys do at a photoshoot, because he knew exactly what I meant by "belly button to hipbone" and "snuggle your nose in her hair"!
It was really a pleasure to meet and spend time with Martha, his fiance. And as a huge bonus, their Goldendoodle Astro joined us! Sifting through all their images is like playing a game of "Where's Astro?". He pops in and out of the frames at random times, and I just loved him.
I didn't have to use ANY of my tricks to get people to laugh, because these two were cracking up the entire time. They are going to be getting some fun bloopers in their gallery, that's for sure! At the end of the session, we even got to play with some neat sparklers from Broadway Bridal (Have you ever seen a heart shaped sparkler before??)
Austin and Martha, thanks for spending the evening with me, and keep laughing! It will serve you so well in your marriage.
