elle ♥ michael

Elle and Michael are such an inspiring couple.  Even at the tender age of younghood (17 & 18), these two have a calm and collected relationship that would make those of us involved for ages with our honeys just a tad bit envious.

We shot at Lake Quivira, a lakefront housing development just north of Shawnee Mission.  The fog was fairly thick, which prompted some very serene photos early in the morning.  The sun peaked in late morning so we were offered some opportunites for jubilant shots.

These two were such a great couple to work with.  At first Michael was nervous, unable to smile without giggling.  It didn’t take long for him to warm up to the camera though, and even offer his opinion on some shot ideas!  Elle was, as always, a warm light shining the entire day.  Her beauty runs far deeper than her sweet face, and it shows in every picture taken.

    OMG!!! THOSE ARE GORGEOUS!!! What do you say about going into business together?! HA! No really – I love the fog ones. #3 should be on a HUGE canvas over a fireplace. Awesome. Well done. Well done…

  2. Kristen you are so sweet!! The experience of photographing these two was so rewarding. I can’t wait to do more of these. #3 was one of Elle’s favorites, too! I actually took like 300 shots, gave her 87, and out of all of them these were my absolute favorite.
