“I’m not very photogenic,” Ali said as we stood in front of the Cleveland Museum of Art for their sunset engagement session. I hear this refrain all the time. “No worries, that’s why you hire a professional,” I said, smiling wide. In all honestly, most of my clients start their engagement session with some nerves. By the end, universally everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera, having had a great time.
So was the case with Ali & Dan. As we walked around the art museum campus, they quickly loosened up. Before I knew it, they were both so natural in front of the camera. When I shoot film, I really slow down and “watch” through the viewfinder like it’s a movie camera. As I watched, I could see Ali & Dan just as they are with each other when alone. Watch…wait…click.
I’m so thrilled with the way the photos turned out from this session. I certainly can’t wait for Ali & Dan’s wedding…next year! For now, I certainly hope you enjoy the highlights below.
