The excerpt was a little misleading and the title was pretty cheesy but it's true (in a 'based on a true story' sense).
But Ashley and Bob are both pilots and they fly through the clouds pretty regularly. Though not literally through cloud nine, because I don't know if there are clouds called nine.
But I could be wrong 🤷🏻
That's neither here nor there...
le sigh...I digress.
So...Here's Ashley and Bob. Here's Ashley and Bob at Hains Point in DC. With beautiful fully bloomed cherry blossoms (That we were afraid may not be there because this spring has been more of a winter this year in DC).
Ashley and Bob are super awesome and super fun to photograph, not just because they fly for a living, because that is freaking awesome!!! But because Ashley is super bubbly which brings out the school boy giddiness from Bob which you can see he is still crushing on her even after all these years they've been together (awwww!!!😊😊😊).
Let me just say this. 98% of clients I photograph believe they are awkward and that being in front of the camera exasperates that.
Sometimes that's true (shhh you didn't hear that from me) but oftentimes it's not.
But Ashley and Bob were truly easy to photograph as you can see. Their natural charm came out early which can tend to take a bit longer for others (and that's ok).
They also brought their two adorable pups🐶🐶
Which I have to mention that the hardest part with working with dogs isn't that you can't get them to do what you would like (though that is the case sometimes). It's that I want to stop shooting so I can play with them!
Look at these faces! How can you not want to roll around in the grass with them?!
With that, of course you can't photograph a couple who fly for a living without getting some planes in the shots!
So we headed to one of the best places to watch the planes take off and land, Gravely Point Park.
Never been there? You should.
Though it would have been nice to photograph inside the plane. Preferably on our way to some exotic location. But you have to work with what you have 😝
Alright, alright. I've rambled on enough😂
Here's some photos to look at
