Couples in Love

Summer Hemlock Falls Anniversary Session, South Orange, NJ | Emily & Pablo

Their Session: South Mountain Reservation, South Orange, NJ

This blog post might be a little different than what you typically see here! Emily and Pablo’s anniversary session was actually a part of the mentoring session Alaina of Alaina Sacci Photography had booked with me! Her mentoring session included a few hours of Q&A time for deep diving into any current pain points and goals she wanted to tackle. Then, we headed out to this gorgeous spot to take some updated headshots for her before meeting up with Emily and Pablo, our models for the couples shoot portion of the mentoring session! I love to include a shooting portion into my mentoring sessions because we can really focus on posing/direction, lighting, camera settings, conducting a shoot, and so on! What I also love about the shoot is that we plan and style it together to be on-brand to what my mentee’s style is, so we know these images will be super helpful for their portfolio!

Emily and Pablo were such incredible models for us at South Mountain Reservation! Typically, I help my mentees find models, but Alaina had actually known Emily from school and knew her and Pablo would be the perfect fit! I’m so glad they were able to join us for this session and that they were up for everything from walking around in the waterfall to getting dressed up in their wedding attire again!

Thank you for spending this day with me, deep-diving into your business, and allowing me the pleasure of guiding you along this journey! It’s the ultimate honor to be able to help in any way! <3 Congratulations on going full time and crushing it in your biz!!!

Emily and Pablo,
