When Ryan first called me to book a shoot with his girlfriend Bao, I was immediately engaged with the enthusiastic voice on the other end of the line. Ryan’s attitude was positive and contagious right away and I knew he was going to be fun to work with. (yes, I just ended a sentence with a preposition. deal.)
I wasn’t quite prepared for the amount of fun and awesomeness that resulted from our hour together, though…
We had some issues finding the same location, so thanks to my handy-dandy google maps, I found them and Ryan was waiting outside the car to flag me down. When Bao got out of the car, I was immediately taken back by her tiny frame and stunning features played up by her FAB style. She was a little quiet at first, so I continued chatting with Ryan to start…
We walked down a path to find a good place and the moment the two got in front of my camera, their personalities shone sweeter and warmer than the sinking sun.
So like, duh, we have two beyond beautiful people here. So obviously they made my job easy to make beautiful images. But more than their exteriors, the benevolence and joy in their spirits create a draw and drama to this set of images beyond others I’ve shot before. Ryan and Bao are spirited people…and instead of trying to describe the beauty of their spirits in words…I’ll let the images do the talking…
