Haley and Cam are fellow photographers. I met Haley through a Facebook group for photographers when she was in search of a someone to do a couple session while they were in Florida. They drove all the way from Denton, Texas to capture a wedding in the Bahamas, then met with me on their way back to Texas.
We hit it off immediately and I seriously miss them already! During our session, we joked about how Florida driving is a whole other level of dangerous (true story), their Disney plans the next day, how Cam was thoroughly enjoying being photographed, their ratchet AirBnB they stayed in in Miami, and how it was weird to be in front of the lens.
I know feeling so I was making it my main focus to keep the jokes flowin’ and pep talk talkin’ to make them feel super comfortable. I think the greatest compliment Haley gave me was at the end of the session when she said “there were other, cheaper photographers, but we picked you because you were the best.” As a photog, this means so much.
These two have been through some serious shit the last year and I want more than anything for 2019 to be their year. This couple session got deep and is more than just pretty photos. It was a moment to reconnect, to reflect and to document their love for one another. I may be a little bias, but I think it was captured.
