I know that some couples are nervous about being in front of the camera for their engagement session. Personally, I’m a pretty big spaz on the other side of the lens. I tell my couples that there’s no shame in having a glass of wine before our session, and I love it when they take me up on the suggestion. But other couples fall right into the shoot, and are naturally easy to photograph. They’re way too excited about each other to pay much attention to me clicking away, and they don’t seem the least bit self-conscious. Adam & Ayoni are just that couple. Talk about making my job easy. I think I literally just said, “Okay, stand here” and they immediately melted right into each other. I love being a fly on the wall when I shoot — which is one of the best things about documenting a wedding — and it was great to have this dynamic during their colorful, energetic engagement session in Venice.
