No, Monique and Joe are not professional models, just a beautiful couple that as you can see are very much in love. I had never shot at the Shops of Legacy so I didn’t know what to expect. It’s a place where Monique and Joe like to go on dates and just hang out with friends, so it was a special place to them. I always encourage couples to photograph at places that are meaningful to them. It helps with easing the nerves of having their picture taken and makes them more comfortable with the whole process. We had a great time and finished off the session with a great glass of riesling.
