I remember saddling up at my local bar and chatting with Carrie on a few different occasions. We’d chat about life and love together and with our favorite bartender, Caitlin. Carrie and Caitlin are great friends and that’s how I met Carrie, through Caitlin. When I heard Carrie found “the one” and was getting married I was pumped for her. And, when she messaged me to ask me to take their photos I was even more excited! I get to document their best day ever as they celebrate with friends and family!
But, I’m getting a little ahead of myself here. The engagement session comes first. For their session they wanted to do some formal/traditional studio portraits which I thought was fun. Carrie sent me a pinterest board with some inspiration we drew from and on the board was a really old portrait of a couple that she wanted to recreate because she thought it was a little silly. You’ll see below, that photo we recreated is the one in black and white. I played around a little extra with that one to give it a vintage feel. After we finished playing around in the studio we wandered around Franklin Square (avoiding all of the prom-goers!!) and documented them sharing tasty treats and coffee at Freedom of Espresso. It was adorable and you should scroll down to see for yourself!
