I never thought that taking engagement pictures of my baby brother could ever be described as feeling “natural” (I mean, I used to change his diapers, you know?!) but it was one of the most comfortable and relaxed sessions we’ve ever had… not to mention it was a ton of fun! Within the first 5 minutes, Paul had dipped her for a kiss, added in his own props, grabbed her butt for a photo (when my mom wasn’t watching), and manufactured his own super-random brand of poses! Not to be outdone, Anna threw in her own hottie-toddy style and was able to accomplish some poses that I’ve been unsuccessfully trying to demonstrate to brides for awhile now! It was fantastic… both of them made our job totally easy! We went over to downtown Mesa, Arizona and did our entire photography session around back alley ways, an old mill with railroad tracks, and the new Mesa Arts Center (which we love)!
We got to try out our whole “prop” idea that we’ve been working towards incorporating into our photos (you’ll have to look at the entire session to see what I mean). They definitely understood that concept, she even brought a “bride to be” tiara that her maid of honor bought for her bachelorette party… and we didn’t hesitate to use it!
Thanks Paul and Anna, we are very excited to do your wedding photography and we hope it is an amazing day for both of you!
