I had a pre-meeting with Machete and Mayhem a few months ago, and they spent so much time telling me how awkward they were. So I thought hey, perfect people for me! Also, why not make a fun session out of it and see how uncomfortable we could get.
But between the laughter, I got to capture their true nature and love for one another.
We started the session at their roller derby practice space in a warehouse in Vancouver, WA. It worked perfectly for some fun shots on their skates…and crashing the recliner.
Machete and Mayhem wanted to up the awkward factor….so on went the FULL denim outfits. I mean, who doesn’t want these outfits anyway? They worked amazingly.
After a bit of fun in the Storm Shelter, we headed to the nearest park and tried to crash the playground. I think we were all inspired by the movie Masterminds. Zach Galifianakis and Kate McKinnon were great examples of what to do during engagement sessions.
But again, my strategy of making them laugh and relax, I get to capture the real, sweet moments.
August can’t come soon enough. We’ll be out at Anderson Lodge in Ariel, WA having way too much fun at their wedding!
Congrats to these two amazing ladies!
