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.

Enjoy!

    I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dimepiece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I am having trouble to proceed to the checkout on Dimepiecela site. I have read in Cosmopolitan that the brand was bought out by a UK-based hedge fund for $50m. I’ve just bought the Dimepiece Fire & Desire Makeup Bag from Ebay and absolutely love it xox

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next
    post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  36. Writing Articles with Artificial Intelligence

    April 9th, 2022 at 5:45 am

    I don’t need to tell you how important it is to optimize every step in your SEO pipeline. But unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to cut out time or money when it comes to getting good content. At least that’s what I thought until I came across Article Forge… Built by a team of AI researchers from MIT, Carnegie Mellon, Harvard, Article Forge is an artificial intelligence (AI) powered content writer that uses deep learning models to write entire articles about any topic in less than 60 seconds. Their team trained AI models on millions of articles to teach Article Forge how to draw connections between topics so that each article it writes is relevant, interesting and useful. All their hard work means you just enter a few keywords and Article Forge will write a complete article from scratch making sure every thought flows naturally into the next, resulting in readable, high quality, and unique content. Put simply, this is a secret weapon for anyone who needs content. I get how impossible that sounds so you need to see how Article Forge writes a complete article in less than 60 seconds! order here.
