Hilary and Deven live for the journey of life.
If there’s a cliff, they’ll climb it. If they want to venture out and hit the open road, they’ll buy a Volkswagen bus for their journeys. It’s what makes them unique and provides a strong foundation for solid relationship.
When we first met, I could tell Deven wasn’t too keen on engagement pictures. He knew they had to be done, but like most guys (myself included) he wasn’t ready for an afternoon of “Hey, look over here. Smile. Turn. Smile. Again.” Luckily for him, that’s not my approach.
In our planning, we figured spots that highlighted their adventurous side, but gave them opportunities to relax and goof off a bit.
Shooting this session was a lot of fun. We spent a lot of time hiking around some of their favorite parks and places that were special to them. I even got to hang of the side of a cliff or two which is always fun — unless your wife is assisting and freaks out a bit.
At the end of our afternoon together, we were able to get some great scenic shots, solid moments, mixed in their dog and their trusty VW Bus, and enjoy a small campfire too.
