Jess and Rob didn’t know each other before they met to take these photos. This was the very first time they had ever seen each other.
As a wedding photographer, I know just how to figure out the dynamics of each couple I photograph. I imagined this would be much more of a challenge with two strangers who had never met before – because even the two of them had no idea what their dynamic was going to be! We were all going to have to figure that out together.
I have known Rob for at least 20 years. That sounds insane to say. I was so happy when he and Jess agreed to take part in my little experiment.
We got insanely lucky that the December day we selected for this session just so happened to be 60 degrees. We also had some amazing golden light – which is my specialty. The rest is alllll Jess and Rob. From the second they met they were both definitely at ease with each other. We had such a fun night taking these (my dog, Buttercup even made a cameo because Ray was walking her during the session).
