During my mentorship under Joy Prouty of Wildflowers Photos she had several models meet us at magical locations in Bend, Oregon. The first photo session that we did was of this “soon to be engaged” darling couple. To start the session off we got to listen to their candid stories of brokeness and the beauty that has created such a strong lasting relationship. It put me in such a different mindset having listened to their emotional tales and really made me appreciate that I would be capturing their story at that moment in their lives. I definitely learnt a valuable lesson to really discover the story behind the folks I photograph. Thanks Joy, Grace and Mike.IMG_8611
