Jessica and Zac both have high stress jobs, so on their down time they love just being together at home with their dog Maka, who is adorable! So when we were getting ready to do their engagement session Jessica asked if we could do a session at the house. Ummmm yay! Men are way more comfortable at home and are much more likely to relax in front of the camera there. Plus this particular home had great lightening and was cutely decorated. This part of the shoot got Zac and I acquainted so later when I dragged him out in public (it wasn’t all that public no one else was around) and made him get all romantic with his lady he would feel more comfortable around me and in front of the camera. Win win.
Zac has family over on the windward side and that’s also where Jessica works so that part of the island is definitely homie to them. We found a nice secluded spot over there that was perfect for this session. We had such a beautiful shoot despite the mosquitos. I look forward to watching their love story unfold over the years!
