After many years of photographing people I have come to realize that not everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera. I’d say that 95% of the people I shoot are not models; they are folks who have not had any “on camera” training. Sure, some folks feel very natural when a camera is pointed in their direction, others not so much. Every once in a while I do come across a couple who seem to be so comfortable with one another that it really doesn’t matter that there is a camera capturing their every move.

Cindy and Roger are that couple. When I sent in their Era Engagement photos to the album manufacturer they actually emailed and raved about the album and how much they liked the models we chose for the shoot. They were surprised to find out that these two were not models, but two people who really love one another.

During the session I asked Cindy and Roger to just “BE” with each other, to pretend that I was not there. This couples chemistry level was off the charts, so much so that I wanted to know if they would bottle it up and make it available for the general public.
