Carl is a very popular guy. We had met because he was in not one, but two, bridal parties of previous weddings. Since their engagement session, I’ve had numerous people tell me “I know that guy!” It’s absolutely no wonder, since spending some time with Carl and Min, I can attest they are hands down one of the most fun and easygoing couples to spend time with.
I often say that “modeling is hard work (especially if you’re not a professional model)!” My best advice to couples being photographed is you have to stay in the moment, focus on the positives, and block out all the negatives or any distractions. I love, love, love this engagement session because Carl and Min do exactly that, all while 100% being themselves. The day we shot, it was nearly 100 degrees, the flies couldn’t get enough of Min’s tulle skirt, and we kept hearing this eerie rattling sound that made us paranoid of snakes (no joke, we are thigh deep in the grass). Carl and Min were able to look past all of that and roll with it. They never lost their sense of fun, or their love for each other. They have effortless chemistry, killer fashion sense, and a joie de vivre that is simply infectious.
I had a blast at their engagement session, I can only imagine the fun in store on their upcoming wedding day!
