When I first met with Marisa & Tim they were really not sold on the idea of an engagement session. I assured them of the importance of getting to know & working with your wedding photographer prior to the madness of the big day. I also said we could include any of their favorite hobbies & past times. They laughed and explained that all of their spare time (which is limited they are both young ambitious attorneys) was taken up with a large home improvement project. As most of us home owners know any time you start a project in the home, it takes 3 times as long and costs 3 times as much as originally planned. We all agreed it would be fun to start at their home and go ahead and capture this big part of their life. Again as a woman who also lives in a house under construction at all times I loved the challenge of documenting this time & their love among all the blue tape & paint. 🙂 From the house we took a walk through the neighborhood & down SE Hawthorne. It was a great night.
Here are a few of my favorites so far:
Marisa & Tim thanks again for taking some time out and meeting with me. I had a great time talking home improvement and chatting more with you both. Looking forward to your wedding in just a few short weeks! At this time I would love to offer you a blog comment challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post I will throw in an 11×14 wall print on the house. Perfect for hanging on newly painted walls. 🙂
