I think ya’ll are going to love this one. This engagement session is filled with such incredible love, you will feel goosebumps looking at these photos and I guarantee your heart will flutter. Thank you Anni for this amazing shoot and for guest posting for me!
Olamide was one of the very first people to contact me about an engagement session. She and her fiance, Bola, have a zest for photography, and wanted photos that captured their love of the city and each other to send back to family in Africa who won’t be able to make it to their wedding here in the States. We decided to shoot in Lincoln Park, a lovely little part of the city that seems secluded and in the middle of everything all at once. Even though we were rained out on our first attempt at a session, these two rolled with the punches and headed into our sunrise session with lots of laughter and dancing. Their love for each other was apparent from the moment I sat down with them, and I think it really shines through here.
One of my very favorite things about capturing couples together is that they rarely need to be posed. It’s such a treat to see the way they interact together, and the emotion that comes through in the laughter.
I think one of the most lovely things about engagement or anniversary sessions is that they give a couple a chance to share what makes up their partnership, whether it’s a location dear to them, a moment of laughter, or a genuine kiss in the moment.
