David + Maria | Engagement Photos - Chagrin Falls, Oh and "The Compound" in Mantua, Oh
When we sit down and think of our idea of the perfect engagement session, a couple like David and Maria come to mind. They epitomize all of the qualities and characteristics that we love to find in our wedding photography and engagement photography couples.
Let me explain.
The Perfect Couple
These two LOVE each other! It's written all over their faces the second you meet them. The don't pretend or act shy. They are happily in love, and it's contagious. They are constantly laughing and acting silly, and you can't help but laugh and act silly with them.
Working with couples that are fun, adventurous, and open minded is what it's all about. When you meet a couple and they share the same kind of energy and positivity that you do, and they have a passion for life and for living life to the fullest, you just know that something special will come from that experience. A sense of humor, mixed in with a little bit of creative and artistic trust is the ideal recipe for capturing amazing yet real images that express the genuine feelings and emotions of the loving couple in front of the lens. It doesn't look forced or staged when the people you are photographing can get comfortable with each other and just forget about the camera.
A River of Love and Affection
The setting in downtown Chagrin Falls is beautiful, and offers itself to those who would just stop to take a look. The iconic waterfall and river that flows through downtown attracts visitors from all over.
There's No Place Like Home
Running around and finding great places to shoot portrait sessions is one of the really fun parts of being a photographer. We are constantly looking at everyday places and settings to try and find unique and creative perspectives and points of view. We love to scout new locations and brainstorm about making really great images.
Having a place that is sentimental or that has significant meaning to the client is even better - there is history or a story or an emotion that is often related to the place and that can oftentimes lead to extremely powerful and moving photos that will live with that person for decades...even generations.
