Leslie and Joe’s engagement shoot, which took place at Burke Lake Park, presented me with a unique situation because the soon-to-be bride expressed a distinct reluctance to be in front of the camera. I was curious to see how such hesitancy would play out and was pleased to find that there was a bond between the couple that compensated for what could have been a photographer’s worst nightmare. I had no problems shooting this couple whose connection and shared sense of humor outweighed any challenges that might be associated with a camera-shy model. I look forward to shooting their wedding. There is a natural balance and fun loving energy between Lesley and Joe which guaranties a fun event and the images to remember it by.
