Daniela and Valeriu

I had the joy a few weeks ago of photographing Daniela and Valeriu, our only married couple here at the school. Daniela speaks very good English and we have gotten to be good friends over the last two years. I think it goes without saying that I'll miss them (and especially her) very much, but I'm going to say it anyway... I'm going to miss them SO MUCH.

Anyway, we had a great time trekking around in the tall grass, and they were great models. Not only are they a great looking couple, they seemed so natural in front of a camera. Daniela said they had a lot of practice at their wedding two years ago. I was also surprised by how much more of a goofball Valeriu is outside of class! He's a very serious student, and this was a side of him I'd never seen.

I did a little bit of a softer look on the second and last pictures than I normally do. I just felt like they were asking for it.You know, as much as I love the current trend of hazy, vintage, yellowed pictures, I just never feel like it looks right on my pictures. I've seen a lot of great photographers do amazing stuff with that look, but I'm realizing that it's just not my style. The more pictures I take (of people other than my husband and son), the more I'm starting to feel out my style, and that's a really fun thing to discover.

Every time I look at my pictures, I see things I want to change and fix, but I'm just going to stop obsessing now and post them anyway!
