By the looks of this session, it appears this is a beautiful Engagement session with Jenna and Kyle!
She’s even wearing a beautiful engagement ring! Well… I have a little secret to share with you, that’s kind of important! This Fells Point Engagement Session is not what you think!
Jenna and Kyle aren’t actually engaged!!
Say wha?????? How can it be? Yes, it’s true… and for the sanity of Kyle and Jenna, it is important for me to let you in on my secret!! HA!
Adorable Miss Jenna is one of the trainers at my gym Activate Body, (if you don’t know about this gym, you TOTALLY need to check them out)! This IS her real-life boyfriend, Kyle, but they aren’t actually engaged. They do a really great job pretending, don’t you think? After almost 15 years of doing children and family portraits only, I’ve expanded my business to include wedding and engagement photography. I decided I needed a little more practice with couple’s posing, so I asked these two to ‘pretend play’ for an afternoon. So one beautiful sunny April day, we met up in Fells Point, and did a little pretend engagement session. It was a little chilly, and quite windy, but they were great sports and totally made the best of it! But if we’re being completely honest, I didn’t feel too sorry for them. Several days later they were off to Mexico for a week of R&R, family and fun in the sun!
There are so many styles of photography, especially engagement and wedding photography. This ‘mock’ Fells Point Engagement session is just one style.
I’ve been exploring what I enjoy the most, and finding my niche, and I’m definitely gravitating towards the playful, fun, genuine, documentary look. I love how Kyle and Jenna are interacting, truly having fun, and look completely and genuinely totally in love! They were complete naturals in front of the camera, even though they’ve never done anything like this before. They rocked this mock engagement session, and I so appreciate their willingness to let me play and practice!
Thank you again, Jenna and Kyle!! You two are the best!
