Creative Couple, Lu and her fi’

Many couples are not sure what to expect out of an engagement shoot, they just know they want one. This session ended up being a lovely stroll around the Yorktown River Walk area with a few stops here and there for hugs and kisses. Lu and her fiancé were very easy to shoot because they both have a natural smile. Here are some of her favorite shots from their session.

A great example of our Living social deal.

This shoot is a great example of what can be expected from one of our Creative Couple shoots. Kiana and Tre requested we shoot in the CNU area of Newport News. This area offers a lot of different backgrounds and we took advantage of the great architecture as our setting. These are a few of my favorites.

Professional Album Design

I was given a great piece of advice from one of my business mentors. He said, “Don’t try to do everything yourself, use the professionals around you.” We have been using a professional album designer for a while now and it has been a huge added value to our brides. Our albums look better than ever thanks to Lindsey Mosher and her skill at designing albums. Here are a few examples of work she has done for us.page 1

Creative Couple at CNU

IMG_3647I met Larkita and her fiancé at the Mariner’s Museum park but I have had a number of sessions in that area and wanted to shoot somewhere I have never tried to shoot an engagement session before. We went across the street to the Ferguson Center area on the campus of CNU and collaborated on these.

Creative Couple in City Center

I met Amy and Carl at Aromas at City Center for their Creative Couple engagement shoot. This location played an important role in the unfolding of their relationship and it was the perfect location for their engagement session.

Creative Couple at Mariner’s Museum Park

I met Felicia and David at The Mariner’s Museum Park for their Creative Couple engagement shoot. It was very cold again but they were very willing to collaborate.  She Is a dancer and he is a football coach so we included elements of their interest in their shoot. Working together we came up with some new shots that I have never done before. I am looking forward to working with them again in the future.

Creative Couple Engagement Session

I shot the first of my Creative Couple Engagement Sessions Sunday. Meredith and Lee were ready to collaborate. They were willing to bring my ideas to life and had some ideas  of their own. They were even willing to try a few silly ideas I had in mind. If you want to be a part of my Creative Couple project let me know at kteventphoto@yahoo.com
