amy + rob
On to the next double-couple! This was our second attempt at shooting Amy and Rob while they were in town from Orlando. The first time it was an absolute deluge. The second time? It was just raining a lot.
When you're going into a rainy shoot on an unbelievably cold day (during what is supposed to be Spring) you have to have fun and laugh at how ridiculous it is that we're all outside and the weather totally sucks.
It says a lot to us about clients when they can just let go and go for it - and Amy and Rob did. We just hope they don't have any crazy muscle memory of how bad they probably felt during the shoot and want to punch us in the face next month. Because Rob is a big guy and my face is pretty. Don't hit me, Rob. Okay? Cool.
That made me laugh - "my face is pretty." Ha :) Yeah, unfortunately, the whole "Spring shoot" kicked us in the head when trying to shoot Amy + Rob - it pretty much rained everyday they were here. So, on their last day, we shot anyway - hiding in covered areas, getting a little wet, and eventually, the rain chilled for a little bit, and they killed it - that shot above, Amy, you just absolutely destroyed it. And that shot above was just about when we started losing feeling in our hands. Seriously, when did Buffalo quit warmth? It's May. It's cold. I get why these two live in Orlando. Sun = win.
Fun fact? These two work at the happiest place on Earth. I forgot to ask if Disney gets less cool if it's also your place of employment, but I highly doubt it! I cannot wait to go again - I told Murph if we won that $300 million a few months back, we'd move directly into the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Also, he's already trying to potty train Dexter, since that is a requirement for us to be able to go again. I don't want to break his heart by telling him how long it'll be before Dexter can get himself to the bathroom, let alone use it :)
That's okay - our bank account is going to need that long to recover, too. It's the happiest place on earth just so long as you surrender your ability to control your wallet and pre-pay for a bunch of stuff. That helps. That said, I also can't wait to go again.
We shared a TON of laughs on the shoot. It's going to be an amazing wedding day. We have two super different and super interesting couples at the same wedding. I know I probably said it sixteen times on the last post - but it's true - can't wait.
Yeah - it's kind of nerdy how excited I am to shoot their double wedding. There aren't a ton of people who could share their big day, and I think it says the world about these four that they can. Likewise, there are more than a few people who wouldn't be okay shooting their portraits in the rain, but Amy + Rob were so amazingly chill that I know their wedding day is going to be a blast.
No doubt. Congrats you guys and thank you so much for having us be a part of all this. It's gonna be great!
