I'm currently running a small Facebook promotion for engaged couples looking to explore some different locations in town. The response I got so far was amazing, and one of the first couples to book a session was Megan and Nick. It was my first time meeting them that day, but it didn't take long for me to see just how great of a couple they were.
Megan and Nick decided they wanted to start the session at Starbucks, which is where Megan used to work, and also where they got engaged. So, that particular location was the perfect one to start at. I decided to simply get some candid photos showing natural moments between them, just like if they were hanging out by themselves.
The next stop on our session, which I suggested was Kam River Park. It's not necessarily an unknown location, but I don't think it's really used all that much for photo sessions. That's why I decided to recommend it to a few initial couples.
What I like most about Kam Park, is that it actually has a lot of different spots within it, including the Via Train, the tunnels, the boardwalk and some of the views. We literally took advantage of all of them. Megan and Nick were very easy to photograph and most of the time I didn't even really have to direct them. It's hard not to have a certain posed nature to engagement sessions, but I think we found nice balance, and Megan and Nick played a huge part in that.
If this session was any indication, I can't wait to meet all the other couples that have taken me up on my offer. I couldn't have asked for a better first engaged couple to photograph in Megan and Nick.
