I love when couples come to sessions with an idea or two for photos . And I love it even more when they want to incorporate a little bit more of their personalities into their photos. So when Victoria + Nathan wanted to add a game of Magic, a small white pumpkin and some tree climbing into their session I was all for it! Add a couple Instax cameras and it definitely made for a super fun session!
Some of you may already know this, but Dave + I are pretty nerdy. We love video games, geeky TV shows, and board games galore. And although we haven’t played in what seems like ages, we also really enjoy Magic the Gathering. Sometimes these facts catch our clients off-guard as I don’t think they are expecting it (not sure if it is because of the job, our age, or just because it is generally a less common occurrence), and what ends up happening is some great chats about these geeky past times with new people, which is always fun! And of course, whenever they come up, I love incorporating these shared passions into engagement shoots, weddings, or really any type of session.
Victoria + Nathan also wanted to incorporate their baby pumpkin (which I actually really liked as it was a great little detail to play around with), and general climbing of things. The latter is something that I don’t personally share a love of (or any talent in really), but it sure was fun to photograph!
I really did have just the best time hanging out with these two and I am so excited to see what they get up to come their wedding day next year!!
