my first trip ever to chipotle was our first time meeting amy and chad, what an all around awesome day! over quite excellent gourmet burritos (their words, not mine, although i do agree :) ) we chatted about how they met, their upcoming wedding (and corresponding killer reception), and life in general. we immediately liked amy and chad.
it was great to reconnect with them on tuesday for their engagement shoot! since they are super braves fans (like, multiple.games.a.week kind of fans!) chad had the fabulous idea of shooting their pics at a game! of course we were up for it, it was a little different, great company and braves baseball – perfect!
we decided to grab a few ‘green’ shots for amy before heading to the stadium:
i really love noticing the way each couple we shoot holds hands. it is always so sweet and uniquely ‘them’ we make sure to get a shot of it each session we do!
we were racing the rain at the park, the skies were darkening and we knew our time was short!
once at the game, matt and i switched gears and shot more like we shoot a wedding – capturing the whole story and very selectively offering suggestions. we also put down the cameras and spent a few innings chatting with amy and chad and cheering for the braves; what a great night!
the bottom did finally drop out of the sky and it rained like crazy! luckily, it didn’t last long and when we emerged from our cover the sky looked like this:
the game finally started and we took our (quite excellent, thanks chad!!) seats. this picture is from the second inning when we were tied with the mets; we pulled it out but it was a little nail-biting for a while!
we headed up to the top of the stadium to take some shots right before we left and though it was dark, we had some crazy stadium lights to work with!
our favorite shot we took in front of the skyline happens to barely include the skyline, oh well! :)
i know chad’s fingers were crossed the whole time that the stadium would work out (since it was his idea after all :) ) and i have to say, chad, good call!
amy and chad, thank you guys for such a great evening! it was awesome getting to know you two better and you couldn’t have picked a more perfect setting in which to do that ;) ! we are so looking forward to the wedding and meeting noah too!
