I first met Maggie and Christopher back in August when I met them to scout their wedding location. What was supposed to be a quick meeting and tour of the wedding site turned into a full day of hanging out with this wonderful couple. Last weekend I met them out on Eastern Long Island to shoot their engagement session. Again, it turned into lunch followed by a really fun shoot. They are really fun to be around. The fact that they share my love for good food is another thing we like about them.
Speaking of good food…..I met them for lunch at a nice little sandwich shop that specializes in cheese. This place had an extensive variety of all kinds cheeses. Personally, I’m perfectly content with cheddar, provolone or mozzarella…..that’s about as daring as I get when it comes to cheese. While Maggies loves those smelly cheeses. Christopher and I made it a point to avoid them at all costs. I’m still trying to figure out what a good stinky cheese is. If it’s stinky, it certainly can’t be good…..not in my book anyway. In fact, I think it should be against the law to use the words ‘good’ and ‘stinky’ in the same sentence. Anyway, enough about the stinky cheeses.
Before we get to the photos, I have to warn you: Maggie and Christopher are hilarious! I don’t think they can go more than 2-3 seconds without breaking out in laughter. Even worse is that it’s contagious. Here we are trying to take photos and they’re making me laugh, too. There were a few times during the shoot where I told them not to smile and to try to look serious. Of course you know what happened….more laughs!
It was a fun day. We actually managed to get some photos in after all. I’m looking forward to their wedding next year. I’ll be fully prepared for another fun day filled with laughter.
