Southampton Engagement Photography :: Mike and Sue

couples Engagement lifestyle portraits wedding

So a while back I was taking a Portrait Photography class and was in desperate need for some models to pose for me. It was a very “traditional portrait” studio class (nothing like what I ever wanted to do or do now, but nevertheless a good learning experience). Mike and Sue graciously agreed to help me out and sit for me while I took awkward, overly posed photos of them (“yes, it’s very important you tilt your head exactly that way, otherwise I might fail” kind of stuff). As you can imagine, those photos never and will never surface on the web. It’s to protect all three of us, I promise.

But I was really happy when got engaged and asked me to take their engagement photos. It gave me the opportunity to show them what I was really capable of. All these photos were actually taken in my little neighborhood, so it’s a good look into Ozona as well.

Meet Mike and Sue:

The Gettin’ Ready
So it's not THE most important part of the day, but definitely one of the most important parts of a wedding day, is a time that often gets overlooked.  The "Gettin' Ready" part.

A Friday Preview
Whoa! Two posts in a row.  Well, this one isn't really a post, just a little preview.  I'm actually not even ready to start editing these yet (a couple other things have to come first), but I opened them up just to take a peek and couldn't resist sharing a little look.  I'm loving this one, and can't wait to get into the rest.

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Melanie and Drew
You know when you see someone you haven't seen in ages, the conversation just flows and you feel like you'll never get caught up on everything that's happened since the last time you spoke? That's what happened with this girl, because I haven't seen her since.....*yikes* high school? We were next door neighbors growing up, and were always at one another house. Mostly I hung out at her house as I kind of liked her whole family. So when she contacted me to shoot her wedding, I was ecstatic. There's nothing like reconnecting with old pals, and learning what's been happening in their life. But most of all, how cool is it to meet the person they'v ...
