Luck couldn’t have come at a better time. I was looking for ways to be creative. To photograph something that I hadn’t done before. Then while scheduling Kaitlyn’s engagement session she talked about what she had planed and ideas she had for her upcoming photo shoot. We knew from the moment we took Nick and Kaitlyn out to dinner, that an amazing 1949 classic car was going to be apart of the engagement session. So of course what did I do? I talked about the session all the way home. A lake of some kind, romantic feeling, cute props… anything that would add to the ambiance, making this engagement session extraordinary. Kaitlyn had the same thoughts, she also wanted it to be more creative and unique than everything she had seen.
I began to dream of this session, and at 3am when I couldn’t sleep I started a private board on pintrest for Kaitlyn and I to share. I dug up anything that I could find with cute suitcase props and vintage cars. I had a vision and as an artist it is sometimes hard to express my vision to my clients, but that is where trust comes into play. Between passing back and forth inspiration ideas Kaitlyn and I both became very excited. In fact I couldn’t wait to photograph this session. Marco and I scouted out a great location a few days before the shoot. While a dear photography friend of mine Deanna, lent me her suite cases, books, globe. With Kaitlyn and Nicks comforter, my cameras, not to mention Nicks car added into the mix; we blew this engagement session into a stylized shoot. I had a great time creating photographs that are one of a kind for this fantastic couple.
Kaitlyn is so beautiful I had a blast just photographing her for awhile. To end the evening, we took a few casual and fun photos with balloons. I really think that we captured their love. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding, which is coming soon. Jump Up and Down Excited!!!!
