When I got the wedding inquiry from Lyndsi and Jeff, I had some suspicions that it may be a spam. It just seemed too good to be true. They were having a wedding, in a month, in the most beautiful Mount Charleston venue! Oh, and they are both acrobats who will be doing an aerial performance in leu of a first dance at their circus themed wedding.
But to my delight, they met with me shortly after their initial inquiry and they were real! And we hit it off immediately and got their engagement session planned right away! I jumped at the idea when they suggested doing acrobats for their engagement session, and they could have a horse that Lyndsi rides there too!?!
This engagement session was definitely a first for me and brought new shots I had never attempted before. For the first time, I wold be shooting upwards for a majority of a session. Plus I had no idea what they would be doing once they got up there. I had to share a bit of the control and that mixed with a bit of the unknown had me a little nervous before the session. But once they got up there and I saw how beautifully they performed, it instantly clicked and I jumped into work. We worked together to get some beautiful performance shots while also getting in those romantic engagement shots. It was magic for sure!
