I’m really excited about this post! When I heard that Jason and Molly ran a Mixed Martial Arts School and that Jason was an MMA fighter, I knew we had to try some different things. We started off at Glen Falls Park with a more traditional engagement shoot and everything went great! Jason and Molly are a really fun couple. After that we headed over to their school to change things up a bit.
These shots were so much fun! I really wanted to take some photos of them as if I were shooting for a cover of a magazine. I’m really happy with the way the first few individual shots came out! Then it was time for some fun…I asked Jason if it was alright if Molly punched him in the face a few times. He obliged. By the time we were done, he had taken about 20 shots to the face. Thankfully, Molly wasn’t swinging at full strength. They wanted to try some different choke holds and even some yoga positions. I was happy to take advantage of their skills and our unique surroundings.
This was such a fun shoot! Thanks for being up for anything, Jason and Molly!

The last photo in this sequence is why I love what I do. His expression says so much!
I wish this jump would have actually happened! :)
Time for Part II!
This is what it looks like to be in the ring with Jason…
