Karen & Mike | A Coffee & Frozen Yogurt Engagement Session
Karen & Mike are fun, down-to-earth people. They're getting married this year, so we started planning out their engagement shoot as soon as they booked. We tossed around some ideas, and decided that what felt the most authentic was to photograph their favorite dates. Karen sent me two placed - Generosta Coffee and YuM Frozen Yogurt. Luckily, both places graciously allowed us to capture pictures.
The photos turned out to be a great mix of documentary & posed. I'm so excited to photograph their wedding in September!
Donevon & Marlene met me early in the morning by the famous 'Fabulous Las Vegas' sign. When I pulled in to the lot, the sun hadn't even come over the horizon yet. They gave me the best recommendations for what to do in our limited time in Vegas. The Park on Fremont was the best restaurant we went to (thanks guys!).
As most of you know, I've been out west traveling and exploring the state & national parks within driving distance from Vegas. One of my goals was to get some beautiful couple's sessions in while I was out there. Peyton & Levi were kind enough to wake up at the crack of dawn to meet me for a sunrise session right outside of Red Rock Canyon. When we got there, the sun still wasn't over the horizon.
Allison & Ron's session was a little uncertain, because we wanted to focus on downtown & PNC Park, but the North Shore kept getting flooded! Luckily, by the time their shoot rolled around, there were only a few puddles left on the sidewalks (and lots of mud). We ended up with a bright & sunny day to explore - and explore we did! We walked all over the North Shore, downtown, and even drove up to Mt. Washington to end the night.
