I’m certainly not the funniest person in the world, but I definitely pride myself on being pretty silly. In fact, I think I can be a very silly person. During a lot of my engagement shoots I’ll ask the couple to do some pretty silly things just to loosen up and have fun.

But then there’s Polly and Kwong, and they threw me completely off. Way off.  They came up with their own random things to do, and it’s amazing. They are the god and goddess of silliness. I can’t even compete in silliness, not even close. It’s like thinking you’re really really good in basketball, and then realizing you’re going one-on-one with Lebron James. He then beats you even with both his eyes closed, shoes untied, sitting in a wheelchair faced the other way.  Well, sort of.

Kwong is not only silly, but he is one of the funniest (tied with Matt Parker) people I have ever photographed, and it gets to the point sometimes where my cheeks hurt because I was smiling too much. By the end of the shoot, I was dead exhausted, and not because I was photographing but because I had laughed so much.

Anyways we photographed this session at the Arboretum and the Observatory. I think the Arboretum is pretty fitting just because there’s random funny looking peacocks everywhere. The observatory is where they went on a special date, I think.

Enjoy the photos!
