Dana contacted me before her boyfriend had to PCS back to the states in two weeks. I had a rare weekend opening and she snagged her couples session spot really quickly! Unfortunately, or should I say not surprisingly, Okinawa decided to have a huge thunderstorm on the day of their session and so we had to reschedule….to the day before her boyfriend flew back to the states! Haha! Talk about photographing their session at the last minute!
But the day of their session was much better in regards to weather even if it was a bit windy! To me though, couples sessions and a little bit of wind just adds to the fun and to the movement of all of the beautiful long dresses my client wears! It is the best capturing the shots with your dress and hair flying in the breeze! And her bright yellow dress was so gorgeous! I loved the bright pop of color she choose! And Rob had a similarly bright Hawaiian shirt that was so much fun to photograph! It made her pictures look like they were in Hawaii!
These two had a beautiful sunset that night and the whole session was filled with smiles and laughter, which is my favorite thing to photograph! I even included some bloopers below when I told Rob and Dana to meet in the middle for a kiss….and Rob stuck his butt out! Haha, we all had a good laugh and I was so happy we were able to get in a photography session before Rob had to leave the next morning!
They are both active duty military who were able to live together here in Okinawa for a short while before he returned to the US. Now they are doing the long distance thing and I know how tough that can be! But they will make it! Take a look below at some of my favorites! And I just recently was able to photograph one of Dana’s fellow coworkers! I’ll be blogging that one in the future!
