Love in the Park - Engagement Portraits

I don't do weddings.

I've been asked to do weddings but I always turn them down.  Why?  They terrify me!!  Maybe it's just my personality.  I'm a bit of a control freak so the fast paced day, and the once-in-a-lifetime aspect stresses me out too much.  

But I'm doing a wedding in December.  What!?!

This is my daughters violin teacher, Roberta.  We've known her for many years so she feels like part of the family.  When she asked me to do her wedding I turned her down....but she kept asking, and eventually wore me down.  She's very persuasive!   Actually, I'm really honored that she likes my work enough to have me photograph this important day for her.  So, I'm going to get out of my comfort zone and shoot her wedding!  

I'd never met Mike before so we got together and did an engagement session.  Poor Roberta nearly froze to death during the session, but I made them hug and kiss a lot so I think that helped.

So now I'm really looking forward to shooting their wedding.  They are a sweet couple and it's going to be an amazing day!
