Whenever a client comes to me with an idea for their session I get totally giddy. I love it when a couple wants to really open up and share a part of their relationship with me – and make the session about more than just the pictures. Every now and then it happens – and I find those are the sessions I enjoy shooting most. In this case, LaTi & Troy are super foodies – and they spend a lot of their time bonding over great food and wine. So initially they wanted a styled engagement in the park, surrounding a picnic concept, and I really loved this idea. Until every time we booked our session date, IT RAINED.
So finally, giving in to the universe, we decided to change gears and take the session to their favorite date spot. This way, they would be able to capture this aspect of their love that they really treasure and mother nature wouldn’t have a say. And wouldn’t you know it? The forecast all day long was for thunderstorms. But we certainly didn’t care as the wine and antipasto flowed and the romantic atmosphere of Garces Trading Company kept us dry and more than content. They got to do exactly what they love to do – eat, drink, be merry & in love. And then, a funny thing happened. The sun came out – brilliant and bright for a whopping 15 minutes and we raced for it. I suppose it goes to show that if you leave your trust in the universe, you may get a little reward once in a while.
Finishing up the session at the wine cave, they chose a vintage to take home for the evening and we parted ways – LaTi and Troy’s hearts and bellies full and a photographer brimming with happiness over being invited to join them on a very special date and excited to rush home and pour over such a unique collection of images!
Thanks to LaTi & Troy for having a great spot in mind and for wanting to bring such a fun side of their life together to our session!
