It took us a bit to nail down where we wanted to go for Jessica and Grant's engagement session, but we think Mount Bonnell was a great choice. The views are, of course, spectacular. But, any view we could find from Mount Bonnell got a hundred times better when we put Jessica and Grant in front of it. They are such a cute couple and are two of the nicest people we have met. Spending the afternoon with them didn't even feel like work. It was like hanging out with new friends...and I just happened to have a really expensive camera with me. :-)
Jessica and Grant did such a great job picking out the clothes. We always encourage our clients to dress nicely for pictures. There aren't very many times in life that they are going to spend this amount of money on a photographer and we want our clients to really look their best in the pictures. Jessica and Grant did just that. Jessica got numerous compliments for her ability to navigate Mount Bonnell in heels. It was so funny to see how many women would walk past her, look at her feet, and then stop and say something to her about her heels. Even Jessica and Grant's son, Kade, was all dressed up for the pictures. He was so cute!
After Mount Bonnell, we took a few minutes to swing by the Capitol Building and take a few more pictures. Elena and I didn't want to stop because Jessica and Grant were so easy to take pictures of. I'm sure they were tired of smiling for us by the time we got done. We can't wait to spend the day with them on their wedding!
