Natalya & Brent are two incredibly talented and tenacious individuals. She is a professional dancer and choreographer, and he is a photographer, videographer and probably a million other things. As far as I can tell they both have a million hidden talents! It’s so powerful to see couples like that together who perfectly compliment the other. Most importantly it’s so obvious they are madly in love!
We met up and wandered around the Little Mashel Falls trails on a warm summer evening. They were down for everything & anything including getting into the water! We somehow managed to get both moody and cheerful photos, those are the best kind of sessions to me, when you get a little bit of everything!
Here is what they had to say about our session together!
“We are a couple of immense differences. I’m American, she is Russian. I like hot sauce, she doesn’t. I take awkward photos, she snaps into model mode the millisecond a camera comes out. Needless to say, I was not looking forward to a couples photoshoot because is it really couples photos when Beauty stands with awkward Beast? But alas, I ventured into the unknown with my nicest shirt, best black jeans, and skinniest of ties. Amanda was calm, collected, and confident in her work with us. She brought me out of my weird cocoon and made me an active participant in the photos. I figured I would just be a figure that my girlfriend leans upon. Someone in the picture showing that she has a human. Nope. Amanda made me feel welcome, made the shoot fun, and pushed me off of my comfort cliff. (We actually we’re on a cliff by a waterfall. Epic.) I can’t recommend Amanda White highly enough. If she can turn this gangly hipster into a makeshift model that compliments a photo instead of humorizing it, she can do anything with a camera.”
