Makenzie and Brandon’s Turkey Run After Wedding Session by Los Angeles Wedding Photographer Brandi Potter
Makenzie and Brandon are honestly one of my favorite couples I’ve shot. I had a couple of concerns when she showed up to their hiking engagement session in fancy dresses and sky high heels, but honestly it was so hilarious and perfect, and one of the best times I’ve had. Their wedding back in November will probably always be one of my absolute favorites. It was so filled with emotion and vulnerability from both of them. I think I cried a total of 10 times that day, and I felt like I could literally feel the love they have for one another.
We wanted to wait until it was warm again to shoot their After Wedding Session, and instead of going to the Gorge like we originally talked about we decided to stay in Louisville, so we were a bit closer to home. Like every other time I’ve ever shot them, this is absolutely one of my favorite sessions ever. They trust me completely and don’t even question when I ask them to do silly things. This is the type of relationship I strive to have with clients.
This shoot should also be a good display of why you should absolutely do an After Wedding Session. It was freezing at their wedding so it was hard for us to be out for very long. I’m also a bit more wary to ask couples to do things that could get them filthy if we’re shooting the day of. It’s so much more freeing to be able to shoot and not have to really worry if the dress is going to get filthy. It’s also great being able to shoot for a couple of hours and picking the time of day. Light is a huge influencer for me and the way I shoot, so please think about adding this on to your collections.
