I had the opportunity to do an intimate couples photo session with an old high school classmate and his stunning new wife! It was such a blast reconnecting with Hayes, meeting Rajshree, and capturing their love in a natural light studio near Albany, New York.
Let me start by saying that this styled session was an absolute dream. The studio itself was bathed in this incredible natural light that just brought out the best in my subjects. It created this warm and inviting atmosphere that perfectly complemented the love and connection between the two of them.
I wanted to capture their relationship in a way that was timeless yet vibrant and colorful. I think that’s what makes couples photography so special – freezing a moment in time that reflects not only the beauty of the individuals but also the unique bond they share. And let me tell you, these two had it in spades! Their love just radiated throughout the entire session.
There’s something magical about photographing couples who are just starting their journey together. You can feel the excitement and anticipation in their eyes, and it’s truly awe-inspiring. As a photographer, being able to document these special moments is an incredible privilege. It’s a way of creating memories that will last a lifetime, not only for the couple but also for their future family to cherish.
As I was editing the photos from the session, I couldn’t help but smile at the genuine happiness on their faces. It was like looking at a love story unfold before my eyes. It reminded me of the importance of capturing these fleeting moments. Each image tells a story, and for this couple, it’s their story of love, growth, and building a life together.
I’m so grateful for the opportunity to reconnect with my old classmate and meet his beautiful bride. It’s moments like these that remind me why I pursued photography in the first place. It’s about capturing the essence of love and family, and creating images that will be cherished for generations to come.
Thank you, Shree & Hayes, for such a fun time! Special shoutout to my girl Sara at Beautifully You By Sara for the professional makeup on Shree. Doesn’t she look GORGEOUS?
