Romantic Aurora Portraits | Sean Kurdziolek Photography | Sanchez Family
Amanda and Manny Sanchez were a lot of fun to work with during their Aurora Portrait. They had a vision right from the start of what they wanted and we were very open to their ideas and suggestions. We also learned what a classic “Cowboy Kiss” is. For those like us who didn’t know, it’s when a cowboy tilts his hat to hide the kiss. It is considered a gentlemanly thing to do in the south. We like it! We like gentlemen! Hah!
We asked Amanda and Manny why they choose to update their pictures and they replied that they do not have very many photos of just themselves so they decided to take some romantic pictures under the Aurora. Amanda always loved watching the Aurora so when she found that she could have Aurora portraits she was ecstatic. I asked Amanda what her favorite moments from the session were and she said “Every moment…just knowing that we would have these photos…with the aurora, means everything to me”. One thing she does recommend is to dress warmly. Hah. Yes, that is a must.
The Sanchez’s wanted large prints to hang above their bed. This is a very common practice these days. To hang a more intimate picture over your bed. Only you see it or those who you feel most comfortable with. The Cowboy Kiss is the right amount of intimacy and class and one that will forever remind them of their adventures in Fairbanks, Alaska and the love they share.
Sean was very professional and fun to work with. I adore our finished projects! – Amanda Sanchez
