The first thing Nicole said when I asked her if there was anything in particular they were hoping to get out of these pictures she said: "We are really more into the funny types of pics" and of course I immediately thought...I really like this couple :)
Both of them had such amazing eyes, and the picture above (left) helped to bring them out. They mentioned they have a 2 year old son, and I'm sure he is as blessed in the eye-gene department thanks to his parents.
When someone says "funny" I find myself trying to look around for items that we could incorporate to help lighten the mood, and on the right you can see one of my attempts. They were so open to the idea which I really appreciated because it makes taking pictures so much easier! I actually really like this one.
A picture that came naturally to these two was the piggy-backed one below. Without even my suggestion, or any hesitation for that matter...John was on Nicole's back ready for action! I absolutely love it when guys do the same things girls typically do. I found myself giggling behind the camera while trying to keep it steady to capture the ridiculousness of the moment.
I have to say that Nicole is one strong chick...she held John on her back for quite awhile. I think it may have something to do with the fact that she is a swim instructor and has really great upper body strength from all that swimming exercise she must get :)
I left for the day thinking that these two people have something really special together. I am so honored that I will be there to see these two join together in marriage this November. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding Nicole and John!
