*Long post alert*
Backstory: I met Boone & Steven for the first time on October 11th, 2014 when I photographed their wedding day. They easily became one of my favorite couples to photograph. These two are like sun and moon. It's so fascinating to watch how they interact and relate to another, despite being so different. Boone is an artist and Steven works with planes. Boone is outgoing + extroverted and Steven is reserved + introverted. But they have their own language, and can communicate sometimes with just eye-contact.
Boone & I managed to keep in touch over the years, and I'm so glad we have! Despite living hours a part, I was determined to photograph them again. SOOO, I contacted her a little after their 2nd wedding anniversary last year and asked if they'd be willing to model for me and they agreed - yay! I told her that I would contact her at the beginning of this year and we'd set it up.
Fast-forward: I drove up to their little town of Darien (just above of Brunswick), to meet them on the Darien City Docks for our portrait session together. I had never been there before, let alone even knew it existed. It has a small marina off the Altamaha River, where dozens of shrimp + sail + leisure boats are docked. Then they've several ruins from the Civil War stationary in between all the charming downtown stores + restaurants.
We hung around the docks, walked around downtown, then ended the session at their parents home on the marsh. I walked inside the home and is welcomed by the fresh evening light coming through all the large bay windows and the coastal decor peppered throughout the home. And don't get me started on the dock in the "backyard".
*I die again*
Summary: This entire session flowed so naturally, that hours went by and I didn't even notice (they probably did tho - haha, But I just couldn't stop!). The only thing was planned about this shoot was the locations + the vibes of their outfits. That's it. The rest all came together on it's own. Which how I'd like every session to be. I'd love to do more sessions like these with no time constraint or expectations, and be the third-wheel on a leisure date.
A big thank you to The Sassers for hanging out with me and allowing me back into their world for a bit. Also, PLEASE check out Boone's artwork, here, on her website. I can't wait to grab one of these refreshing + colorful pieces for our home!
