Engagement Session | Vasquez Rocks | Ryan & Lindsay

The Details

I have the greatest clients!  Today I'm incredibly grateful for adventurous couples who are willing to hike & climb ... yes even in that amazing Show me your Mumu dress ... for the shot.  If I could only give 1 tip to every bride, it is to find a photographer who you trust & connect with.  I'm a true believer that trust in any relationship is crucial.  As a bride, when you trust your photographer completely, it allows them to be inspired & fully immerse themself in the creative process.  Asking a photographer to "recreate" an image you've seen on Instagram or Pinterest is like asking a chef to take you to make you an Egg McMuffin a la McDonalds.  You're asking someone with vision & passion to replicate something that will end up feeling stagnant & forced.  Rather than your session being a true creation of art, your photographer will be focused on a specific image & will be posing you in a way that will mimic the photo rather than positioning you in a way that will feel natural, beautiful, interactive & will capture true memories.  Ryan & Lindsay arrived at their session full of trust & ready for anything.  I am SO thrilled with how their session turned out.  And I guarantee that the images that will mean the most are the ones that both capture & produce feeling & emotion.

The Location

Vasquez Rocks never disappoints.  There are so many layers, textures & points of interest that create such depth in a photo.  I love the variety that can be found ... the meandering paths that create a sense of adventure, the little alcoves that add a sense of intrigue, the strength of the vast rock formations as they contrast with the delicate greenery & soft light.
