When I met Connie and Anek for the first time at Jameson Coffee in Pasadena, after chatting about their wedding details, they confided to me how they were a little nervous about taking pictures together and that they had never worked with a professional photographer. Ok, they were really apprehensive. As Connie shared it, they had never really taken pictures as a couple, were nervous about interacting on camera, and thought they would look stiff. After we talked a little about how I like to shoot, and assured them they would be awesome, we started planning a little, and I think we all left that coffee shop pretty excited about our shoot. When I told Connie and Anek they would be amazing, I meant it. These two inspired me from the beginning because they really put their trust in me to make their first session a memorable one, and I’m thankful that they did.
