This is one of those treats one receives every once in a while: a special acquaintance asks you to take part in their wedding.
Kelin has been one of my favorite models for years, working together several times. In fact, if you fly as you travel, she’s the “Post Up Stands” girl in the Air Mall and magazines, a campaign we did in ’08. She’s also the R.E.Whittaker model among others.
She and her fiance, Jon, were up from where they now live in Georgia. We arranged for them to come to Behm Photographics’ studio in New Wilmington where we had the opportunity to create their engagement session.
These engagement sessions are incredibly helpful to everybody; so helpful they’re included in most of our wedding packages (see packages). Kelin and Jon get the opportunity to work together in front of the camera in a preparatory session for their big day later in the year. Their Signature Package also includes two 8×10 prints for them as well as whatever the newspapers need for engagement announcements.
I, as the photographer, get a chance to work with them as a couple for the first time. Obviously, I’ve photographed Kelin often enough that I know what she’s capable of, but I was meeting Jon for the first time, and had never seen how the two of them interact in front of the camera.
I’d say the results speak for themselves. This is a loving couple at ease with each other, a fact that shows.
Keep Jon in your thoughts and prayers, he has an active duty stint serving our nation coming up.
