The forecast for the day we scheduled their engagement session wasn't very photo-friendly...with 40 percent chance for thunderstorms and low 50s. But we tried it anyway...and though we were cold...and flirted with getting wet, I am so glad we didn't postpone it.
So we started out with their dog. His name is Diesel. And despite his threatening name, and perhaps ominous size, he is a scaredy-dog. Seriously. Wouldnt' come near me. Apparently, I bite. But how freaking cute is he??
And Zack loves him some doggy kisses.
My assistant that day was Courtney Tompson. She caught this great shot.
What a cute little family...
And then that doggone rain started...so we hid under a tunnel, just in case.
This is one of my favorites.
This next shot made me laugh when I saw it later. Yes, a jogger came by. But notice that three pairs of feet are in the frame. But not Allison's. haha
Ok, ANOTHER favorite. Isn't she so pretty? I love the slight smile...it's of a woman who is confident in love. :)
And this is Courtney's shot of the same pose.
Zack is so sweet with Allison.
And looky...Courtney caught me on a high. ;) And yes, that is a makeshift rain shield for my Stuart. It's a garbage bag.
The shot that I got...
Oh yes, his protective nature kicked in.
Courtney's tender-moment capture.
The rain did indeed start falling...lightly. I tossed an umbrella to the two...and while I was getting situated under another, I noticed that Allison was trying to keep Zack's ears warm.
So we all know that Zack is a good man. But... this made me laugh. When we headed back to the cars, it was raining. So Zack and Allison started walking ahead. Notice what Zack's first instinct was with the umbrella...(on the left)...the photo on the right was after a certain photographer who shall remain nameless hollered at him. haha
To escape the rain, we sought shlter in a parking garage. I thought it an opportune time to work with some off-camera lighting on the stairs and in the elevator.
but the rain did once again go away...And here are a few more from our last leg of the session.
Same moment on the left, caught by moi.
How beautiful is she!!?? And I love the serenity in the image on the right.
Gotta love the red doors...and God's house. :)
The last stop was at Kaldi's Cafe...one of Allison's favorite haunts. It also was the location of our consultation back in October.
We'll close with this....
Allison & Zack...we had tons of fun with you. Thanks for braving the blasted weather! Good luck these last few weeks before your BIG DAY! Can't wait to see you both all gussied up.
