Cruisin’

Couples Engagements

After admiring their faces for at least a year, I FINALLY got to shoot with Nicolette (@nicolettepaige) and Colby (@colby_fratto). Their happiness and kindness shows in these pictures.  We were planning on shooting at this location for a hot second before heading out to Salt Lake City to hopefully get a “better” location. But as we started shooting, I realized something… It’s not about the location! Shooting in Salt Lake City instead of this random building wouldn’t have magically made the shoot better. So instead of focusing on WHERE we were shooting, I focused on WHAT I was trying to capture. I didn’t care about cool backgrounds or scenery. I wanted to focus on the emotion, connection, and story of our shoot which in the finished product would make the location amazing. TIP: Focus on WHO you are shooting to make your location amazing. Don’t focus on WHERE you are shooting to make WHO you are shooting look amazing.

 

I added some iPhone pictures of the location we shot at so you can see what it looked like without the camera. Just the buildings of a local bookstore and salon supply store.

There are two things in this world that speak straight to my soul. First is photography (obviously) and second is music. In my opinion, they go hand in hand. Each shoot I do has it's own song, beat, and rhythm. Music and photographs both capture every type of emotion. When you see a picture of someone who has dealt with depression for the past ten years, you can see it in their eyes. When you hear a sad song, you feel the heartbreak of not just the person who wrote the song, but your OWN heartbreak. Looking at these pictures, I don't just see a beautiful couple, breathtaking cliffs, and the endless sea in the background... I feel the rhythm o ...
