When I was first starting out in the photography business, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. None. Not. A. Clue. All I knew was I wanted to create something beautiful. Something that would make me proud to say, “yeah, I did that.”
Mary and Wayne, were my very first paying engagement clients. I was thrilled and terrified at the same time when Mary asked me to photograph them. I had an entry level DSLR camera and owned only the 24-70 f/2.8 lens. I was still trying to understand camera settings, had no idea about posing (for some reason, I just assumed people would fall into naturally beautiful positions), and zero concept of the entire process. Of course, I shared very little of this with them. It was quite the learning experience to say the least.
Thankfully they we’re excited, receptive, and unconditionally encouraging me to follow my dreams. Mary and Wayne chose to have their engagement session in Bowmanstown, PA. After a short hike, these are the original images (with my originals logo and all) I created for these two beautiful souls. I am thankful for their confidence in me and most importantly their friendship.
