It took three tries to get this shoot done. The weather and general summer craziness of the city kept getting in the way - but we finally got a beautiful day and started a tour of some big city spots to celebrate Liz and Marat's engagement!
When I sat down to meet with Liz and Marat the first time, I absolutely loved how they friendly they both immediately were. Marat was just as talkative as Liz, Liz kept looking at Marat when she talked, and they were just so comfortable together.
The kind of comfortable that only comes with being the best of friends.
They are in the midst of planning a beautiful March wedding, so I was super pleased with the sun and warm light we were able to shoot with for their engagement photos.
I watched these two very closely during the shoot to try to get to know them better as the day progressed. A few things I learned? Liz smiles a lot. And when she really laughs, as she does a lot around her man, her nose crinkles.
I feel like Marat is the friend you call when you really just need someone to pull you to your feet, take the panic out of a situation, or just generally steady you.
Together they make this great mix of steady energy. And I loved being in their sphere for a little while.
Love these two...
I absolutely love the sweetness about these two shots here - I love the casual, comfortable connections.
A little blurry - but darling anyway :)
I took full advantage of their laid-back approach to this day and took the time to play with some shots These are favorites #2 and #3.
