Cira Green Philly Engagement Session || Abby + Andrew
What an incredible Cira Green Philly Engagement Session with Abby and Andrew. And I think the fact that it was raining made it even better!! We were super psyched when Abigail and Andrew booked BG Productions Photography and Videography to capture their amazing wedding coming up this September at Union Trust. Fun fact: they are the first deaf couple we have the pleasure of worked with. We have been communicating via email and couldn’t wait to meet them in person.
Neither Al or I know sign language (other than I can finger spell the alphabet and know a few hand signs. We had found a photographer who was going to be our assistant that knows sign language but she ended up telling us she was no longer available. We were worried that we wouldn’t connect as well and so Al and I thought “well we will just be ourselves”! From their online questionnaire, we knew that Andrew is into Transformers and Marvel and well- you know we are way into both of those! So I wore my Transformers “More than meets the eye” t-shirts and Al wore one of his comic t’s (he has a gazillion to choose from!!) And we made some big flash cards with some basic things like “kiss”, “look at each other”, etc and lastly we practiced our finger signing and learned some other basic signs. And we had a Blast and no problem communicating at all!
They also had one of their bridesmaids with them who is also deaf. We just texted and wrote in a small notebook to easily communicate. It was so natural. They are so sweet and easy to work with!! And despite the rain, they were just so chill. They didn’t let it bother them and went with whatever suggestions we made. And we had a blast and got some incredible images. We cant wait till their Big day!!
