Anni Powell Photography is moving to Whidbey Island, Wa in August 2017!
Cassandra and Hunter are such a sweet couple with an amazing sense of humor. When Cassandra booked me, she just said she wanted a couples session. Closer to their session when were were verifying details of their sessions, she asked if they could bring their light sabers! YES LIGHT SABERS! Now do not crusify me, but I am not a Star Wars fan. Now because I don’t like them, I just never watched them, so it was fun to look up the characters and try to incorporate a Star Wars theme into their session. The day of their session, not only was it a gorgeous day with beautiful light, they decided to bring along their Star Wars costumes to change into half way through the session.
I noticed a ring on Cassandra’s hand, and of course because I am curious asked if they were engaged now and without missing a beat her boyfriend answered….
“We are soulmates” .
My heart instantly melted! I love when couples have such a connection and identify with each other as being soulmates <3 True love, and it showed throughout their entire session, and not to mention, how many couples are going to dress up together in Star Wars attire for their pictures? Not many. So this is the true definition of bestfriend’s and soulmates.
So half way through they did change, there were other people on the beach and I am sure that they enjoyed the show. I got a little history lesson on the characters and attempted to put my imagination to good use as I imagined the images I would produce in post production. My photoshop skills were challenged, but it was so much fun being able to try new things and broaden my photoshop skills (even if I didnt know much about Star Wars).
I love when people let their personalities shine and come out during their sessions. That is truly what makes them unique. When it comes to couples, it even more fun being able to have that one on one time with them as they express themselves, and then can look back and see that this is who they were during their session with me.
