Amie & Chris: Engaged

A couple of weeks ago, we introduced you to Sir Chubbs II, the pug. Chubbs was all decked out for the wedding of Chris and Amie, his awesome owners. We’re going to be photographing Chris and Amie’s wedding next year, but in the meantime, we got some photos of them to help them celebrate their engagement.

Amie and Chris were an absolute blast to work with. First off, a mutual friend told them about our pet allergies so Amie cleaned the apartment where we took Chubbs’s picture to the point that you’d never know an animal (let alone three) lived there…you know, apart from the animals that were there. Even then, she kept checking with us to make sure that we weren’t having any trouble. She is an absolute sweetie!

Bride-to-be in black and white

Chris is actually the one who, when we first met, let us know that the photograph he had to come away with was Chubbs in a tuxedo. Based on the way Chubbs did (almost) exactly what he said during the photo shoot, he’s clearly spent a lot of time with that dog and the affection runs both ways. (Amie seems to like him pretty well, too.)

After shooting Chubbs, we just went downtown and hung around with these two, who made photographing them wonderfully easy. There’s nothing, as far as I can tell, that makes for better engagement or wedding photographs than a couple who are seriously into one another and these two are seriously into one another. They flirt and play and smile and laugh and generally make getting adorable pictures of them a breeze.

I love this shot. Dancing in a parking lot?

No problem.

(I told you they’re fun.)

Amie and Chris...I don't know what they're doing, really.

(I have no idea what Amie is thinking here but I like that Chris is apparently A-OK with it.)

We wrapped things up on USC’s Horseshoe, with the sun casting a gorgeous golden light…

(That’s better.)

…on this lovely couple.

Photographing Chris and Amie was way more fun than it ought to be and we can’t wait to shoot Amie’s bridals and their wedding!

We hope all our readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Great use of natural light! I like how it is soft, but still gets good shape and directionality (shots 1 and 5 in particular). The color and expressions in shot 3 are really wonderful. What a great smile!

    What an awesome shoot! I love all of it. Its just great natural feeling work. Thanks for the comment on my blog. The lower aperture rings on the lensbaby can be really great but I love that lens all around. The higher apertures can make a – somethings funny about this but I can’t put my finger on it – kinda look which can be great too. I hope you enjoy yours!
