Alex is a friend and co-worker of mine. He recently got engaged to Kelly and they are planning a wedding for this year. When Alex mentioned to me that he was interested in taking portraits with his fiance, I wasn’t too thrilled about doing the shoot to be honest. Engagement photography is something that I don’t do much and don’t consider myself to be good at it. I expressed my issues/concerns to Alex regarding my fear for doing the shoot. I must say that it took him some time to convince me in doing the shoot. Normally I’m not one to shy away from a challenge but for some reason when it comes to engagement sessions I tend to freeze and don’t feel confident in doing them. It’s something I need to work on.
Well, here are a few portraits I took of the newly engaged couple and I’m glad I did take on the challenge.
Thanks to Alex and Kelly for trusting in me and giving me the opportunity to practice a medium of photography I’d like to get better at.
