I have said it every time I've even mentioned this session, but I had so. much. fun with this couple. You can really tell how much fun these two have together. They were cracking up the entire session and were cracking me up. I literally kept laughing as I was going through their proofs remembering some of the funny things that were said and just how much fun they were, which my husband can attest to. I think it all started when I had just barely started shooting them and David said to me, "Umm, Shannon? Do my feet look weird?" And I said, "You mean because you're not wearing any socks? No, it looks fine." And he responded, laughing, but clearly a little defensively, "I am wearing socks! See?" and reaches into his shoe to dig up this tiny 2cm corner of a sock from inside his shoe. I think that set the tone for the whole session when the three of us just burst out laughing.
Then trying to get them to balance on this beam was hilarious, perhaps more for me than them I guess, but they were such good sports. I loved spending time with them. One of my other favorite moments was when I had them laying in this field in grass up to their waists and as I was quietly photographing them, David casually said, "Yep, just a typical Wednesday afternoon. This is what we always do when we get off work, go lay down in an empty field." Oh man, so many funny memories. And who knows what they were constantly laughing about when I was too far away to hear. I don't even care if it was somehow at my expense because it produced such awesome, genuine photos of this couple.
