My husband's cousin (so, my cousin-in law?) and her fiancé, Dave, met up with me in downtown Utica for their engagement session. Possibly THE best thing a photographer can hear from the groom-to-be during an engagement session is 'this wasn't as bad as I thought it would be', or that they felt really comfortable. So when Dave said this to me towards the end of our session, I was SO glad. I've said it many times before, it is definitely not natural to have someone pose you and then stick their camera in your face. It's understandable to be nervous or uneasy before a session like this, and I love being able to make couples feel comfortable in front of my lens! I am really looking forward to shooting Dave and Jenna's Brewery wedding in the fall.
