Engagement & Save the Date Photo Session | Tina Case Save the Date & Wedding Photography
When did you get engaged? The Census Bureau estimates that close to 10% of proposals occur on Valentine's Day. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve follow close behind.
I had the incredible pleasure taking "Save the Date" photos for this newly engaged couple. They had specific ideas of what they wanted to capture and the setting. One of their requests was to have railroad tracks in some of the settings. I live near a railroad and know those tracks well. I also keep a long list of parks to choose from and together we selected the perfect park where the trees were colorful and where the sun would be shining at just the right angle. The weather and lighting were in our favor, it was a perfect day. We even had the amazing fortune to encounter a train coming down the tracks which was unexpected and timely. (AND we definitely kept safety top of mind.)
We took these photos about 90 minutes before sunset (also knows as "The Golden Hour.") This beautiful couple had a quick change of clothes between locations. In our last session of the day as I saw "D" put on some red hot lipstick we quickly came up with the idea to intentionally smother her fiancé in kisses. It was so fun to see her do this and he was totally game.
I mentioned that a train slowly came down the tracks as we were shooting. It was so perfect and totally unexpected. Here's one of the shots as the train came into view. (NOTE: I know that it is important to be safe when taking photos on or near a RailRoad track.)
