This is and always has been one of my favorite things to do! Some photographers love portraits. They get energy and excitement dressing up their subjects, moving around lights until they perfectly highlight cheekbones, posing their subjects with head tilts and soft fingers…nope. Not me. Invisibility appeals to my introverted nature. To simply study, watch and record human emotions gives me the most joy and reminds me regularly just how wonderful human beings can be.
Undercover engagement photography allows me to do just that! Yes, it is tempting to wear a trench coat and sunglasses and pretend to be Carmen Sandiego, but I wouldn’t actually blend in like that would I? This time I brought along my husband Steve and son Maison to the Missouri Botanical Garden to serve as my fake subjects. And it was wonderful! She said yes! Congrats you two!
