I’ve been looking forward to sharing these intimate couple portraits in a field with you all! At the beginning of February, I went to the Blair and Thurston Austin Retreat. Bre and Elena are good friends of mine, so I went to be their assistant and take some behind the scenes photos and video. I’ll probably write a more detailed blog post on the entire experience later, but I wanted to share these photos from the couple shoot first.
Bre and Elena always have a family shoot and a couple shoot at their retreats. While I enjoy the family shoots, if you know me at all, you know it’s the couple shoot that I really love, haha! That being said, our couple model brought along their sweet baby and we got a few poses in with him as well. He was a complete sweetheart who couldn’t stop smiling and flirting with all of us. I love capturing the love his parents have for him, which totally made me think I would love to photograph couples with babies up to this age! I have always loved photographing lifestyle newborns, but I’ve never thought of photographing the older babies that can’t quite walk yet. I may need to look into it 😉
We were originally planning on photographing this couple somewhere else, but there was a wedding on the property. Luckily, we drove just a few feet down the road and stumbled across this amazing field, which was even better than our first location! It was so much fun watching Bre and Elena pose the couple and getting a little creative with angles and perspective to avoid getting other photographers in the shot. Even better, the light was absolutely dreamy and I cannot get over how sweet this couple was.
