We all have friends that we have known it seems like forever. They know so much that we have to keep them close so that they won't tell the world all of our secrets. Every so often just like the movies a couple will suddenly see each other as more than friends and love will bloom. T C. and Taylor knew each other from the age of 12 but it wasn't until they were much older that love was sparked in their relationship. We are sharing their Valentine inspired engagement shoot in Irvine, California. From the start, this was not the run of the mill engagement shoot. They looked like two kids in the park having a great time. Well, isn't that what you want to capture? An engagement session should show the couple being spontaneous and displaying how much they enjoy each other. It is so much fun just watching TC and Taylor have a good time.
We just love the way they used the props. The balloons were used so creatively throughout the shoot. They hung them above the heads, they hid behind them and they held them as they walked through the park. The use of the trees was also a nice touch especially since the couple met as kids. The blanket transformed it into a more intimate, cozy setting.
Couples sometimes stress about engagement shoots as they consider the location as well as what they should wear. It is most important that you select a venue that can provide multiple backdrops but most of all somewhere that you can be relaxed. These photos are designed to capture the love you both share. The emotion will just leap off the image when you are simply yourselves. Select your venue. Have a theme like TC and Taylor but most of all have fun and your pictures will be absolutely amazing.
