I love working with adorable couples like this! Over the weekend, I got to photograph a sweet engagements session for Brittany and Joe.
Brittany and Joe chose to take their photos in a park and garden setting, surrounded by roses, fountains, and trees. The location was actually the spot where Joe initially proposed to Brittany, so we sort of re-created that moment. Getting engaged in a garden — could anything be more romantic?
Brittany is an artist and showed me some impressive sketches that she’s come up with. She and Joe are both Trekkies — which totally appealed to my nerdy girl side! — and have attended Salt Lake ComicCon, which I myself attend on a regular basis. (Yes, I’m that much of a geek. Live long and prosper.) In fact, the first FanX event held in Salt Lake last year had a special event featuring virtually the entire cast of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” I even got to meet Sir Patrick Stewart myself. Brittany and Joe went to the special dinner event the first night and got to have their photo taken on the bridge of the Enterprise.
So yeah, there was a lot of talk about completely nerdy things. And not only your typical geek stuff like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars, but also the “art nerd” aspect, which allowed us to create this sweet session.
Knowing a little about them and being able to connect on such a level allowed the three of us to have tons of fun with their session. In a way, I kinda wish we could have incorporated the Trekkie concept into their engagements session, but alas, the Enterprise is no longer available. Still, we were able to express their artistic side and we had fun all the same. Maybe we can have fun with a Star Trek shoot some other time.
