Amanda & Jason | continued . . . Tucson Airport Engagement Portraits

Well after the awesome day with Amanda & Jason on Saturday where the emotions were high, I wasn’t sure how yesterday was going to turn out.  Mainly because it was going to be hard to top the experience and photos that we took during the actual engagement, the amazing security clearance that was given to create photos on the airplane and the Tarmac and other awesome places.  Well, yesterday was a home run (no pun intended).

We started at a downtown location and took some fun portraits, but the real fun began when we were able to go over to Hi Corbett field and have the entire field to ourselves.  What can I say, I guess my name has some clout and people allow me to do some pretty cool things if I just ask for it :) (Thanks a TON Eric, it totally made everything awesome!)  Anyway, it was the most beautiful day this week and it made for some pretty awesome portraits.  Amanda & Jason were just bubbling with fun, love and awesomeness the entire time, and you can tell in the photos below.  Thanks again you guys, I’m so honored to have been part of so many special things for you guys and can’t wait for the wedding!

Everyone at the Southwest gate was so gracious and accommodating, it made for some cool opportunities for sure!

So, here is Jason.  Jason is getting ready to ask Amanda to be his wife.  It was a tricky task, but it was pulled off flawlessly (in my opinion).  We had been taking portraits atop the stairs (in the next photo), and we needed to create a diversion that would force Amanda to stay up stairs while Jason got his flowers and sign.  Scott, Amanda’s brother, had come and was hiding ninja-like the entire time waiting for the drop-off.  We made Amanda change her shirt, 2 times, so that we would be ready for her when she came down the escalator.

A lot of the airport personnel watched along, and as soon as Amanda said yes, they all clapped.  It was one of those “awwwww” kind of moments :)

They met on a Southwest flight, and when the got off the plane, they sat in one of the terminals and chatted for a long time.  I loved the lighting on this one!

We sort of simulated them meeting for the first time on the plane.  It was SOOO awesome being on the plane!  Made me feel like we were really heading somewhere . . .

This was totally spontaneous . . . they just walked onto the field and did this without any premeditation or direction.  I was lucky I was just in the right place at the right time, makes a GREAT series!  They sure hit a home run with everything else that day!

This is now my all-time most favoritist (is that a word?) picture.  Not only is the lighting, the expression, the mood and color just awesome . . . but also knowing that this same pic couldn’t have been taken with a Nikon, priceless :P

This one comes in a close 2nd or 3rd for favorite image of the day.  This isn’t special Photoshop effects or anything else, this is real photography here.  No enhancements.  Just a special lens that makes a special picture.  Does your photographer do cool stuff like this?
