Emileigh and Drake are some of the kindest people I have ever met, yet alone photographed. Their gentle nature made it easy to talk with them (although if you’ve had a session with me before, you know it’s not hard for me to talk HAHA!). I typically like to observe my couples to determine their personalities as couples, and individuals. It wasn’t hard to see how much Emileigh and Drake love each other. The way she snuggled right in his arms and he nuzzled her temple were proof enough that they loved each other, and they loved each other a lot.
We started our session in Heritage Hills. If you haven’t been out that way before, it’s a beautiful neighborhood with historic homes, including the Overholser Mansion. The streets, alone, were gorgeous. We started out on a sidewalk surrounded by a weeping willow tree. Drake became a professional nuzzler within about five minutes; I’m not kidding – he’s a natural! We made our way down the road to a cozy white picket fence. I didn’t have to work too hard at posing these two because they were naturals on their own.
We ended the evening with a sunset session on a parking garage. The sunset, along with Emileigh’s black blouse, made for the perfect portraits. The contrast was simply stunning. I can’t stress enough how natural these two were with each other. It was incredible to see two people so wildly in love.
Drake and Emileigh – thank you so much for the opportunity to take your portraits. You two were some of the most easy going people I have ever met. Your love radiates off of the two of you. I hope that our paths cross again and we can make some more beautiful portraits!
