With the sun in the sky and a swift but cool breeze drifting by, the marvelous Monday afternoon was a perfect time for photos. Enter Emmy and Ryan. When I walked up to them at Sample Gates, Emmy greeted me with a warm smile and Ryan reluctantly got up to join us. Clearly, this photo shoot was not his idea. Nevertheless, there was no way not to enjoy such a beautiful day!
Throughout our session, Ryan kept it cool while Emmy kept it fun. Usually the guys in the couple shoots give a pretense of at least trying to pretend that they are having a good time, if only to entertain their girlfriends. Ryan grudgingly played along. After a while, I think that Ryan couldn’t help but absorb Emmy’s contagious & light-hearted banter. Her goofy personality melted Ryan’s stoic face into a smile. At least once…maybe even twice. :)
I love photos like the one above because they’re so candid and real. I like to think about the message that each one conveys. The one above says to me, “Emmy, you are so loved!” It’s absolutely adorable. These two make me laugh.
Emmy scouted out a trench of leaves conveniently raked for us in front of the Chemistry building! (Ironic, no?) Perfect fall day. Last but not least, we had some fun in the setting sun. To Emmy and Ryan, a lovely couple with a bright future ahead!
