Sydney and I have been planning these family engagement photos for months now and we just can’t seem to catch a break with the weather, which is strange because since June it hasn’t rained a bit… except on the days we try to shoot. Our first session was planned for June and it rained. So we pushed to July and felt great about getting it in since we’ve basically been in a drought. And wouldn’t you know, the night of our session the radar went back and forth trying to decide what it wanted to do. We decided to go for it, hoping to get as much of our session in as possible and started the evening with the family shots. It took a bit of coaxing to get Jonas to warm up to the idea of taking photos, but you wouldn’t know it from these photos. I absolutely adore shooting engagement photos for couples who have kids – they’re just as much a part of the celebration as the couple themselves, and am so glad we managed to sneak these in.
Of course, we got rained out. It started to drizzle and was terribly dark as we went to switch from family mode (and wardrobe!) to couple photos and outfits, and we decided to call it a night. It’s been sunny and clear since. Until last night. Guess when we were rescheduled to shoot for? Yep. You guessed it. Sydney and Jamaal are getting married next month at the Indiana State Museum and I couldn’t be more excited to work with them. I’ve wanted to shoot a wedding there for a while now, and Sydney and I hit it off when we first met for a consultation. These three were troopers with the heat and humidity and drizzle and I just KNOW they’re going to have a gorgeous evening for some shots on the canal next month. In the meantime, we’re postponing the remainder of their session until the seasons cool and we won’t be melting while trying to shoot. That just means you get to see that much more of them and I’m all for it!
