A Mt. Hood Honeymoon Adventure
I’ve shot weddings, I’ve shot engagements, I’ve shot girls with their cats, a 100th birthday party and press photos for bands. But have I ever shot someone’s honeymoon?
Well, I have now thanks to Karen & Josh. Chris and I met up with them in Mt. Hood where they rented a cabin right after getting married in their home state of Texas. It was kinda kismet, what with all four of us sharing the same last name, and vintage cans of Miller beer sitting on the back porch. And so we officially dubbed our day together: MILLER FEST 2013.
And lo, good times were had! Good times that perfectly illustrate exactly why I prefer Day In The Life sessions over standard portrait shoots. Because if there’s anything I am not, it’s a Wham Bam Thank Ya Ma’am! photographer. I’ll say it a million times if I have to: I love it when a client becomes a friend. So naturally, spending the better part of a day together and getting to know each other in between all the adventuring and camera clicking is my idea of a perfect session.
The end result of my time with Karen & Josh was something insanely personal — a day I couldn’t possibly recreate with any other couple.
Because it was all about them. Not me. Period.
