Alex and Quinn Engagement Session

Posted in: All Posts, engagements-wedding

I promise I will get to Alex and Quinn in a moment (their story is insanely cute – TV/Movie storyline material.)

But first a cute story of Alex and…Alex (me.)

When I was little, my Uncle Brian worked at Marshall Elementary in Tulsa, OK with Jamie (Alex’s mom,) and we got the perks of going on field trips with them. We also would spend days at Marshall Elementary with them when they would do “outdoor schooling”, which was exactly as fun as it sounds.

In the 90s, we didn’t have social media or the easy access of communication we have today, So Alex and I grew up and lost touch.

Who knew that in 20 years I would grow up, and photograph Alex with her fiancé Quinn?

Anyways, the story gets better…

Alex and Quinn grew up across the street from each other, played together as kids. Their houses were literally diagonally across, on the same street. After school when they got off the bus, Quinn would walk Alex home from the bus stop each day, all the way to her front door, and carry her books/bag. What a sweetie right?

Below are some photos that show Alex and Quinn in front of a cute little white picket fence with a rose bush behind them – that’s the place they had their first day of school photos taken over the years growing up.

You can’t make this stuff up, and as a photographer, you definitely can’t pass up the opportunity to shoot them there together either.

It gets even better.

When I made their preview slideshow for this shoot, one of the songs I used was “Two Weeks” by Grizzly Bear, because it reminded me of the episode of How I Met Your Mother – Window is Open. (You know, the one where the girl next door is finally single, and her neighbor calls Ted and says “the window is open”, yet the episode ends with a really cute video montage of the girl growing up next door to the guy she ends up reconnecting with and later marrying instead of Ted, as Two Weeks plays.) As a TV nerd it just felt right.

Alex texted me after seeing the slideshow preview and said Quinn was convinced that I was psychic, and knew they loved Grizzly Bear and that particular song (and Blind Pilot, another band I used in the slideshow.)

I have to note this for couples that are brainstorming engagement photos and ideas: drop the Pinterest ideas.

I’ve said it in the past, your engagement session is an opportunity to be photographed in places that are special or meaningful to you. I promise that the right photographer can make any location not just “work”, but look awesome. Think first date locations, where you met, the first place you said I love you…whatever. Just consider meaningful places for your engagement shoot, because it makes the shoot so much better, and it’s a small piece of your story.

(I’m knee deep in wedding season and it just brings out all the emotions in me so….sorry for the sap!)

Note: The first set of photos were shot at Spain Ranch’s Black Barn – and I was in photog heaven. There are SO MANY great composition opportunities, the natural light is perfect, and the staff is unforgettably sweet.

Alex and Quinn are so much fun, and so great to be around and photograph. Let’s just say I’m a fan for a number of reasons.

    Of course, there are also many online sites that cater to Indian players who just like to play for free. Most professional casinos will also have a free version of each game. This means you can play Andar Bahar as you like for as long as you want. No need to spend money. Keep in mind, however, that your winnings won’t be real money either. Playing Andar Bahar is legal for the most part but it depends on where you reside. When it comes to online casinos the game is legal to play but in some areas of the world where online gambling is not legal online casinos can be blocked. However, playing Andar Bahar for money online is legal for most players. Even in a country in India where online gambling is technically illegal the country does not prosecute people for gambling online. The country does have the right to block online gambling sites but does not do it often.
    As the name suggests, the 200 free spins first deposit bonus is given when you put money into your online casino account, i.e. make a deposit. This is a very popular online casino promotion and most of our online casinos will be happy to give free spins to play your favourite video slots as soon as you make a deposit to your account. Most of the time the number of free spins you will receive will depend on the amount you deposit into your account. Check the casino cashier for bonus details Several free spins bonuses in a row are prohibited, as well as several multiple accounts. Hence, if your recent transaction included a free bonus, you must make a deposit before using this free spins offer. This bonus is free of wagering requirements. Free Spins on offer at an online casino are usually made to appeal to new members rather than existing ones. Nevertheless, there are many instances where current casino members will find free spins that enhance their betting experience.

    One of the benefits of playing online poker games is its promotional offers. PokerHigh offers bonuses, welcome bonuses, cash promotions, and so much more. These bonuses offer incentives and value when you play promotional poker games. 888poker offers such a bonus, with a $20 no-deposit promotion for new players. This no-deposit bonus is available at 888poker NJ and the 888poker network of Delaware online poker skins (Delaware Park, Dover Downs, Harrington Raceway). A poker bonus can be earned in many ways.

To get a welcome bonus or sign-up bonus, you will have to use the bonus codes to avail of the offer. Other than this, every poker bonus comes with codes or specifications that players should follow to use them as per convenience.
    The BRAVO Poker Watch module facilitates player tracking and wait list signup in the poker room. Through Poker Watch, supervisors are able to track the entire floor from one screen. Management knows immediately when a seat is available. Seats are filled quickly and quietly. The Poker Watch software also increases operational efficiency of the poker room through features such as game set-up and maintenance, wait list sign-up and management, and game speed analysis. The software also provides management with a wealth of information through point tracking, table drop analysis, room statistics analysis and player session history. See a Poker Room Host for Details. As I noticed while using the app and then researching the Premium version, the Premium version does everything I wanted the free version to do… considering how useful the Poker Notes Live App is I will probably purchase the Premium version before my next live poker game. If you play live poker even once a week I would definitely consider purchasing the Poker Notes Live App.

    Players can actually claim the bonuses on so many casinos that offer the games, now let us take the SpinoVerse Casino as an example. There is a $55 no deposit when the players make use of the coupon code INFINITY-55. Normal deposit bonuses keep things somewhat rational, but, as it is always the case with no deposit bonuses, online casinos strive to make your gaming experience as hard as possible. Every no deposit bonus code comes with heavy wagering requirements, which makes it almost mathematically impossible to end up being the house when it’s all said and done. The better online casino entertainment gets, the more we want to play! There is an abundance of online casinos that allow you to play casino games for free with No Deposit Bonuses – your ticket to free casino entertainment. These online casino bonuses do not cost anything. Signup as a new player to redeem free spins and cash bonuses with no deposit required.
