Carter & Allison | Winston-Salem NC Engagement | Melissa Lynn Hunt Photography
When it comes to having your pictures taken, it can be a stressful experience. Aside from all the planning, you stress about how you are going to look! I think it's true for most people that we become a little (ok, maybe a lot) anxious in front of a camera. For woman, especially, we worry about our hair, our makeup, or clothes. We ask questions like "How does my smile look?", "How does my body look?" Allison was a little (ok, maybe a lot) anxious in front of the camera. What I loved about her anxiousness, was that it was so sweet & quite adorable. I knew that she just wanted her engagement pictures to be absolutely perfect! Allison was a little unsure about how to pose & how to smile. I coached her through it all, as I would with anyone. Then I watched such a wonderful thing happen. The man that Allison looks up to, feels closest too, took her hand and said "Just relax." He held her close, hugged her tight, gave her kisses and reassured her that she looked beautiful.
Allison took a deep breathe, followed my directions, and started to relax. I took a moment to show her an image on the back of my camera. I wanted her to see just how amazingly beautiful they looked. Allison took one look and was thrilled! From that moment on she and Carter just enjoyed themselves and this time together.
It was a BEAUTIFUL day with a BEAUTIFUL couple! I am blessed to have them as clients and I can not wait to photograph their wedding next year in Charleston, SC!
