A few days ago we had a chance to spend some time with Lauren and Russell, a lovely young couple who will be making it “official” in 2010. They’ve been engaged for a while, but didn’t have the opportunity to have their engagement photos taken until now. One of the joys of being a photographer is being around people during the happiest times of their lives.
Silke and I could tell from the very beginning that Lauren and Russell are true soulmates who are madly in love. It also shows in the images below. They reminded us of those classic Hollywood couples, the dashing leading man and the strikingly beautiful young starlet. That’s what we wanted to come through in these photos and I feel we were able to accomplish just that.
This session was done in and around the town of Long Beach, NY on the south shore of Long Island. Despite the weather reports threatening us with rain, we ended up with what turned out to be a lovely day. And a great day for a late afternoon/early evening photo shoot.
Congratulations guys! Thanks for hanging out and giving us a glimpse into your lives.
We look forward to seeing you on your wedding day in 2010!
