Engagement trips have been the most exciting to photograph for me. They got engaged in Paris, and this session happened only a few days after for the celebration of a birthday. We were monitoring close the rain as on those October days, you will never know how rainy it might be in Amsterdam. Still, as Amsterdam has very changeable weather, we can work around and take pictures even with light rain. So, I always message my clients if a not-so-light rain is expected to see what we can do. The best option for me is to wait in a café nearby, as heavy rain lasts no more than 10 minutes.
So, that is what we did. We went to a café, had a croissant, and 15 minutes later, we started with our pictures.
A conversation with your photographer before your photo session gives several advantages: You know your photographer, and they know you. Simple but powerful.
Your photographer has a unique sense that with 5 minutes of walking before, we can sense how you care for each other, how you hold hands, and what makes you comfortable. So, imagine 15 minutes of talking about life and love. It was priceless!
Enjoy the pictures, and see you again soon.
Joanna, your Amsterdam photographer
