Talk about a gorgeous location! Captured by ArtPhotoSoul Photographers, today’s featured engagement session took place in the enchanting Wekiva Springs State Park in Florida. Stacie and Allan spent a December day wandering the woods and cuddling in a field. The couple shares a mutual love for all things Disney and had fun singing “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” from Mary Poppins during their shoot.
As I sit here in my office looking out over one foot of snow on the ground with more falling, I can’t help but long for the sunny days of summer! This golden engagement session is the perfect escape on cold, winter day like today. Captured by Inkspot Photography, Patricia and Nick spent a stunning May day in a vast, sunlit field in beautiful Concord, California. The softly blowing grains and warm light give this session a fabulous, organic feeling.
Patricia and Nick’s story from their photographer:
While still in high school, Nick wanted to ask Patricia to be his girlfriend in a very original way. One day when she was out shopping, Nick went to her house and covered her bedroom door with post-it notes, each saying “Will you be my girlfriend?” When she opened the door, Nick stood waiting and asked for her to be his girlfriend, and she immediately said “yes”!
After just four months, Nick told Patricia that he loved her and knew he wanted to be with her forever. They went on dating for four years, seeing each other grow and mature, graduating high school, and then moving to Washington together for college.
Nick knew it was finally time to take the next step, and with the help of a few friends they created the perfect whimsical set up with curtains, photos from throughout the years, and flowers in a meadow. Photos floated from string with a picture on one side and post it notes on the other saying “Will you marry me?”. With the ring he had picked out on his own, he got down on one knee and asked, and of course Patricia said “yes”! To her surprise, the whole family was waiting in the parking lot with balloons and signs of congratulations.
When Nick popped the question on December 29, 2012, Patricia was absolutely shocked! Shock turned to reality and now pure bliss has set in, knowing they are a perfect match for each other.
This engagement session is so adorable! Captured by Inkspot Photography, Minh and Mj spent a day rowing and playing games in Golden Gate Park on a gorgeous June day in San Francisco, California. I love how this couple incorporated a game of Connect Four, the same game they played together on their first date, into this outdoor session. Be sure to read more about Minh and Mj below.
A few words from the photographer:
Minh & MJ were such a joy to photograph. Together, they explored and picked all of these breathtaking spots for their engagement session in Golden Gate Park. I was so thrilled when they told me they wanted to rent a rowboat! The two of them often go for walks around lakes so this seemed like the perfect fit to start off their session. The boat staff got a few good chuckles in while Minh & MJ were figuring out how to steer, as I kept to the safety of dry land trying to yell directions to them. Haha! It was quite the show.
After we’d had enough of rowing, we strolled over to some nearby benches where they played Connect Four. I love how they brought along props that were sentimental to them. I guess they had been playing game after game on their first date and Mary was determined not to end on a losing streak. These two sweethearts made it easy for us to capture happy, love filled images.
