Chris + Valerie | College Park, MD - Flying High

Saturday, June 14, 2008

It sure is hot today in Atlanta and it was equally as hot yesterday in Maryland. Love does not wait on the temperature to change, so yesterday Chris and Valerie met me over at the University of Maryland for their engagement shoot. Up until this point we've only spoken by phone so it was a good time for me to learn more about them and the two of them to learn more about my shooting style. Chris and Valerie were introduced freshman year by Valerie's cousin who forbade them to date. As time passed the two found each other irresistible and I can see why. The chemistry of their relationship is evident in these photos. When smiles faded during the shoot since we were all dehydrated, all I had to do was mention their love and the rest you can see for yourself. I decided to end the shoot with a very creative and fun shot. After a little planning and a boost of confidence they were both flying high! There were no clouds to find in the sky yesterday but these two are definitely on their own Cloud 9.

Chris and Valerie will exchange vows on the 4th of July weekend in New York and I can't wait to capture more images of this beautiful couple.

Oh yeah, before I forget...Chris brought a gift to the shoot for Mrs. KNIGHT. Thanks Chris and I look forward to seeing more of your artwork.

- KNIGHT

Ditto Darcita! I'm going to have to try that "triangle frame" pose next time I get the opportunity. Ross, your style of working with couples is amazing! All of your couples are so into each other even I forget that you are there photographing them!!
