Hey everyone! Molly here!
I first talked to Luke about his portraits in September. He told me he was a photographer (<link) and Emie was a wedding planner (<link). EEEK! Talk about nerve racking. It’s always a little bit strange-feeling to shoot someone who knows their stuff (technically-photographically-speaking). We have shot people who THINK they know what they’re doing :), and we have shot people who definitely know what they’re doing. Let me tell you, there is a difference in the way my nerves do between the two. I wasn’t too nervous once I actually met these two, but before-hand I was. Don’t tell Cristina, but I’m kind of a pessimist. When we got to Forsyth Park, there were tons of people and a LOT of sun. It seemed like there would be people in the background everywhere we shot, so I’m glad we had a chance to look around before they got there. Once we scoped things out, and these three got there, I felt a lot more relaxed.
Once I start doing what I do, I forget the questions I had before “I wonder if they think I’m weird if I ask them to do this…” etc. Plus, Emie had a great laugh, and I wanted to take Hudson home with me. We talked shop with Luke for a long while, and we really enjoyed it. I hope we can do it again soon! We also hear that Emie is quite the cook, soooo… yeah. I’m hoping it’s sooner than later.
Oh Hudson, your puddles of rolls make me love you.
