Ryan & Kyle | Spartanburg Photographer | Kendra Martin Photography

There are times in my business where I need to try out new things or practice with gear. I’m not one that likes to “play” with anything new during a paid session or at a wedding…. so I will enlist the help from past clients and friends so that I can play around and try new things and know that whatever we walk away with image wise is totally ok because we’re getting to have fun and I get to work & grow as a photographer and then they walk away with however many images they walk away with. A few weeks ago I asked my friend/past client Ryan if I could get her and her boyfriend in front of my camera so I could play with a lens I don’t use very much. I don’t use it because it’s a tad different than my go to lenses and I am just not comfortable enough with it to pull it out during paid sessions/weddings…. and I really want to use it more!!! So Ryan & Kyle met me in downtown Spartanburg for a fun little session and y’all I am soo excited to share their images!!!

Can I just say that these two are so sweet and Kyle thank you for being willing to come along to play I can’t thank you enough for helping me out and letting me get to know the two of you as a couple!! From the way they smile at each other to the way they talk about and hug one another… y’all I was squealing during the session! Thank you two so much for letting me play and at the same time be able to document you two and the love you have for one another!! Here are a few of my favorites from the session!!
