The Story    “The colored photo in the canoe was taken at the lake in our hometown. There are two lakes that surround our small town in South Dakota where we grew up. My husband’s parents actually live on the lake so we spent many days on the water. The lighting and scenery of that photo reminds me of the absolute beauty of nature and the memories we have on the water.”

The Photo    “The black and white photo was taken in my father’s 1963 red Ford Falcon Futura convertible. I grew up driving this car around town every summer as much as I could. My husband and I actually grew up together so I loved this candid photo that was taken in a vehicle with so much history, yet it represents moving forward into the future.”

The Technique    “We messed around with a few (templates) and compared. What made our decision was when the one we really liked had a spot for a main picture & then three slots on the side for 3 pictures – we loved the theme but we only wanted to use two pictures really. So I decided to take the same picture and place it in all 3 spots on the side of our main photo and place them just right so they would line up and look as if it’s just one picture. It is one picture just placed three different times, as soon as I got that figured out, we knew it was the one.”

Super Sweet Spring Garden Engagement Session

Jan 28 2016

Spring Garden Engagement at Brookside Gardens Talk about an absurdly sweet spring garden engagement photo session with Kristina and Shawn! Their photo shoot at Brookside Gardens in Silver Spring, Maryland definitely sets a playfully romantic scene. Brookside Gardens boasts 50 gorgeous acres of award-winning and unique gardens, making it a fantastically floral-filled location for local couples!

With the flowers in bloom all around, Kristina looked oh-so-gorgeous in her flowing coral dress with her groom looking dapper in a simple grey button-up. And throughout the session, they did a couple quick outfit change for some more laid-back poses … great idea to to get a another vibe going for your session. The bright hues of the flowers are a lovely complement to to couple {those fire-red flowers are ahh-mazing!}

Now if I may, let me offer a few bits wisdom as you get your e-session lined up this year!

  • Capture up close details of the surrounding landscape    {like the dreamy pink flowers in Kristina and Shawn’s session}, then use those photos as chic wall art in your home. It’ll most certainly make for a memorable piece of art in your new home together!
  • Rain, snow (blizzard?!), or shine – make the most of any weather event!     {Of course, no matter what – safety comes first!} I’m inclined to say to not cancel your shoot if conditions to get there to and fro allow. But really, roll with the punches, make a date out of it, and your photos are sure to be epic!
  • Be spontaneous    While we all need a few “posed” poses to frame for the relatives … candid, unplanned shots are the most natural way to show off your personalities. Check out more engagement photos poses here!
