Shannon + Jason’s Downtown Richmond Love Session
This past Saturday night I photographed my friend Shannon and her boyfriend Jason in Downtown Richmond for a late night photo-op. Shannon has been through SO much over these last few years but still always remains to be strong, one of the sweetest people I know, and always humble. She truly is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out. And Jason couldn’t be a better match for her! Jason is such a nice guy – he was so supportive and willing to help us take in a stray kitty that Adam and I had found and we will always appreciate and never forget that. On top of all that, these two have a lot in common. They are both musicians and actually met because of they were in an Indie-Rock band together called Aduro. Shannon was their keyboardist/vocalist and Jason was the bass player. They had such a great connection and that’s always something you’ll never hear a photographer complaining about ;). I really wanted to find a couple so I could experiment with off-camera flash more because I’d love to start incorporating off-camera lighting more into my sessions. We started off at the Canal Walk and made our way through to Shockoe Bottom. I *really* wanted to go to the flood wall and get a nighttime cityscape in the background with the two of them. But like most cities, areas of Richmond are quite questionable and in the end it wasn’t worth us risking it. A huge thank you goes out to Shannon and Jason who drove all the way from Chesapeake to stand around and sweat with me, as well as my amazing husband and dad who are always SO incredibly helpful with every shoot. The humidity these days is ridiculous but they all toughed it out and were such troopers. This session may also be featured in an upcoming video and I’m so excited to share it with you guys!
