“Love is fuel for the soul.” – Molly Friedenfeld
Machado Photography is going to have a busy summer in 2016! We’ve gotten so many referrals from past weddings that we’re booking up quickly…which is a great problem to have! We love being busy!
Just before Christmas was a bustling time for engagement shoots for all of those upcoming summer weddings; one of those sessions was Lindsey and Shamus. I met the happy couple while photographing Maya and Patrick’s wedding in August. Lindsey was one of Maya’s bride’s maids; she & Shamus must have liked how the photos turned out because they asked Machado Photography to be part of their big day! (I can’t say I blame them, Maya & Patrick’s pictures were gorgeous, even if I do say so myself! http://www.machadophotography.com/2015/10/)
We decided to do the photos at the Doon Ruins because they’re such a cool backdrop; after a few wrong turns, I eventually got there! It was a perfect day for the session because not only was there snow on the ground, but we even saw some moments of blizzard-like flurries (which created fantastic pictures), and times when the sun peeked out for us. And even better, it was pretty warm out too!
We traveled around to a few interesting settings, including this old garage with a vintage fuel pump. Love these! They’re just a bit different from the usual engagement pictures! I also really loved the plaid and jeans that Lindsey & Shamus wore to the session; works so well with the outdoor settings.
You’ll probably notice the extra face in these photos! This is Whiskey! Check out that fantastic sweater! I sure hope he’ll be at the wedding, he’s so photogenic!
If you’re planning your engagement session, don’t forget:
1) Pre-plan for a unique location.
2) Wear whatever makes you happy… be yourselves!
3) Bring your furry friends…they’re part of the family…and they can make you more comfortable in front of lens if you’re camera shy!
