Shooting a couple can always be a gamble. Simple common sense would tell you that, obviously, two people would be twice the work as opposed to just shooting an individual (I know, groundbreaking discovery), you're working with two personality types, two people have to get used to the camera, there's twice the posing, and so on. But it's when I thank my lucky stars when I get a couple like Abby and Andrew.
I know Andrew from graduating with him from high school. And knowing that he is one of the funniest guys I've met, and completely uninhibited, I was already expecting shooting him to be a breeze. And he completely talked up this Abby character, who at this point, I knew nothing about. I heard adjectives like "chillest", "amazing", and "freaking awesome" being tossed around when he was describing her. And who-da-thunk-it? She drives a Jeep Wrangler. Boom, I'm done, sold. I instantly knew she was awesome. I mean come on! We are basically kindred Wrangler driving brethren!
After weeks of delays and bad weather we FINALLY got to have the session. As soon as I met them at the scheduled time and place, I was pleasantly surprised to see the obvious rad-tastic-ness emanating from these two. They oozed confidence and were completely down for anything that I wanted to try. Both Abby and Andrew's personalities played off each other so well it took most of the hard work right out of the session and it felt more like shooting some really great friends.
I, being the goober that I am, thought we should start with one of the harder to get to locations first, so after a short 10 minute mini-hike and a very minor allergic reaction we started shooting. The next 3-4 hours seemed to fly by!
So, Abby and Andrew, I want to personally thank you guys for being such a riot to shoot and I hope you enjoy your photos.
