We love shooting in the Village of Lewiston in Lewiston, NY. We went there for Ashley and Dan'e engagement session. They told us the style they were going for and we threw out Fort Niagara State Park and village of Lewiston.
We started the session at the park. We worked in nature and even photos along Lake Ontario. We did more casual style outfits there. Then they got into their dressy outfits and headed to Lewiston. It was only about ten minutes away from the park in Youngstown.
I can't get over how great the bride and groom to be look. They had the perfect outfits for this location. We love red. It is such a bold color. I think it makes such a statement. Dan looks amazing with his dress pants and suspenders.
Center Street in Lewiston is not very long, so we just walked around and waited for the street lights and store front lights to go on. It's not everyday you would think to take a photo with and insurance agency sign in the photo. But the building, street lights, trees, and flowers looked so good. We did not want to photoshop out the sign. The red flowers helped to balance out the red dress Ashley wore. The brick building also added to the style of the shot. It felt so great with their outfits and the lighting.
We did not ask for much for this photo. We wanted the the couple to take a casual stroll down the sidewalk. No looking at the camera. We wanted them to engage in conversation with each other. We had no idea what they were saying to one another, but both Ashley and Dan were laughing. Those are not fake laughs!
Genuine smiles and laughter make for the best photos. Once the couple gets comfortable with us, they should feel like we have known them forever. That is always the relationship we want with all of our clients. We know this may not always be the case, but in Ashley and Dan's case, within the first ten minutes everyone was comfortable!
