Meet Andrea and Andrew. They met in college in Indiana. They are getting married in Milwaukee. He just moved from Shanghai. Together, they are one amazing couple and love to travel. These two cool cats had a beautiful engagement session with me this past weekend. Welcome to Amy Karp Photography Weddings 2013! If this is any indication how the year is going to pan out, lets do this and lets do this a lot! During the first part of our session, we were in the Farmers Market area to pull some color into their session during these winter months. I asked Andrea to look toward me & Andrew said “did you say Andrew OR Andrea?” – it was then, I realized I REALLY needed to enunciate my words working with two clients with such similar names. The colors we were able to infuse into their engagement portraits were really awesome – reds, greens, blues, yellows…so gorgeous paired with the sunlight. We found some pretty foliage that stuck around from this year’s beautiful Autumn, some pottery named Katrina, wall art, some vibrant green bamboo, and some birds on a wire….it was a fun day.
Andrew had contacted me a few times to get everything set up for the session. I had it in my head for about a month that is was going to be warm. I really am a wuss when it comes to cold weather. The week leading up to the engagement session it was dreary, cold, overcast, cold, grey, cold and cold. I was starting to get nervous. The day of their portraits the sun came out, the temps warmed up and I was so thankful. We spent all of our time together in Dallas. We even hit the new park over Woodall Rodgers, Klyde Warren Park and had some yummy food truck snacks.
