Let’s face it, girls…
the love your life might not be jumping for joy about shooting engagement pics….
most guys don’t dream about what they will wear
or how to “smize”
or what angle makes them look thinner…
they do it for us. It’s one of the MANY things they do for their brides during the most exciting time in our lives!
True, there are a hand full of guys that get involved in the planning stages of the engagement session,
can’t wait to change into that third outfit,
or climb a mountain (or swim a swamp) to get the perfect location for that perfect shot….
but more often, he is there for you, the love of his life.
Of course, it’s always more fun than he anticipates, but still…
it’s for you.
So, you know your sweetie loves you when
1. he agrees to take engagement pics
2. he agrees to a wardrobe change… or 2….
3. he willingly climbs under a bridge and sits on sticks and swats mosquitos
but girls, you REALLY know he loves you when he does all this
with a sinus infection….
or when he feels like he should be at work….
the list goes on….
Here in the south we have had record heat…. I hear it’s all over the nation, actually, so we all can enjoy sweaty days together….
We don’t shoot many engagments or bridals on these hots summer days. Most try to wait until that nice October breeze blows in.
But I have gotten to shoot some true southerners that hardly notice what others are complaining about! Some people are grouchy and moody with this kind of weather, but not these guys! We smiled and laughed… true, a little sweat was involved, but it didn’t stop the fun!
