An early-morning Genesee Valley Park engagement session
These two were my kind of people- warn me about being “awkward” in pictures, then are so in love that I don’t even need to pose them and they totally rock it! My goodness. I barely had to tell them what to do. I’ve photographed a lot of couples, but these two were instantly different. All I did was tell them to just enjoy each other’s company and show off the love, and guess what? They took it and ran! And it was so wonderful. They made it look so easy and and their interactions were beyond effortless. Now that’s the love I love- the kind that requires no additional thought and comes completely naturally. I love it! Mat and Julia met at the University of Rochester where they were both on the rowing team. They’d both been rowing since high school, so it was the perfect match (as you can so clearly tell). You’ll see them flash their fancy blades in a few of the pictures, and I’m sure it’ll make you smile.
