The most flattering thing that a potential client had to say during a dinner meeting last week was how much they could appreciated our ability to truly bring out the correct tones, colors and properly expose for bi-racial and couples who are dark and light skinned, that this was important to them because they both wanted to look great in their images and that this was something they feel photographers struggle with. This truly got me to thinking about how we feel being photographed as a bi-racial couple ourselves, it’s actually really funny to type it out let alone say it because we have never really ever saw ourselves as such, it was more as if we referred to ourselves as a multi-cultural couple then that of bi-racial but none the less it is true, obviously so. We can feel a certain bit of pride in knowing that it all contributes a bit to what we shoot, how we shoot and who we tend to attract as photographers. There tends to be a bit of a connection and a draw to us given that it’s so personal. Given it would seem that these potential clients are not the only ones to see and feel that way as we appear to have a good mix of clients this year!
Having 5 kids, our engagement sessions allow us to recharge and renew while getting to know our clients on a more personal level. This post is a bit over due (Sorry Anika!) as I should of posted it weeks ago. But our clients do tend to replenish this drive in us to want to do better, be better, see more, shoot more… we thank them all for that, for the confidence, trust and love each of them gives us. And lucky for us, since this session was Anika and Bobby’s third, they loved their images!
Even more so we have to give Bobby kudos as he patiently hung in there throughout what felt like the most hottest and , most humid day of the year while allowing me to jump in as needed to wipe the sweat from his brows in between takes. We truly are looking forward to your upcoming wedding next year in Berryville Virginia, in the to-be built barn at the Historic Rosemont Manor, it’s simply going to be breathtaking no doubt!
