Downtown Rogers and Secret Barn Engagement

When it comes to awkwardness and being natural in front of the camera, we like to take a very "hands off" approach. In other words, we try not to pose our couples and families unless needed.  We tell our clients to be themselves in front of the camera. Too much directing causes them to be very posed and our style is more non-traditional. Of course, this will feel a little awkward at first, but eventually you will get used to the flow of things. This is exactly what we told Chadia and Tom for their engagement shoot in Downtown Rogers and Bella Vista, AR. I could tell Chadia felt this way because she would tell me, "I don't know what to do" a few times during their session. But when it came down to the end result, she didn't have a thing to worry about because they both looked natural and great the entire time. They loved them all and couldn't even chose a favorite. I ordered a custom guest book for them for their wedding and I can't wait to see the images printed in a book. It was very windy that day, and two of my heart balloons got away and floated into the sky. Here are a few samples from the shoot:
