Meet Jeremy and Krista.??? These two are my brother-in-law and sister-and-law.? Okay – technically Jeremy is my sister-in-law’s brother and Krista will be her sister-in-law that makes Krista and I sister in law’s of sister in law’s – or something like that but who cares right?? Family is family.??
They will be getting married in two weeks and I was honored to be able to celebrate their upcoming wedding by doing their engagement pictures.? Krista has connections so we were able to use the Outdoor Center at Lake Pleasant as our backdrop.? (Who knew there was an outdoor center at Lake Pleasant right?)? Tanner and Ty came along for the ride and Tanner worked quite diligently as my reflector assistant.? It was a wonderful day out with my boys and this sweet couple.
Jeremy is a kind, compassionate, sweet sweet guy and the whole family has been thrilled to watch this romance unfold and we look forward to welcoming Krista into the family.
As I was processing these shots I kept asking myself who Krista reminded me of and it finally occurred to me – Elizabeth Shue.? See it?? Both are beautiful women.?
This couple didn’t need any coaching.? ? They got it.
Ya I know.? I already showed you a dip kiss but I liked both of them.?
So here is the story…
I was pretty excited when I noted a clear ridge line.? I don’t find those often.? But, when I snapped the silhouettes the evening sky was still a beautiful deep blue (note the first silhouette).? I wanted an AZ sunset but didn’t have time to wait for it.? On my way home (about 20 minutes into my drive), I look out my rear view mirror and there is the gorgeous sunset I was after.? I pulled the car over and shot the sunset.? So the picture above is almost real.? It would have looked like that had I waited 20 minutes.? So I made it work.? That’s what I love about the artistry of photography – I have a say so in the end result.?
On our way home, we had to stop because a couple of wild donkeys were blocking the road.? I was telling the boys that when I was little, Papa and Sweetie took us on lots of overnight trips at Lake Pleasant and we often saw (or heard) the wild donkeys.? Fun memories.
