Anna & Ryan : Engaged

Before I begin this post, I have to say that the amount of anxiety I had over this session is worth mentioning. I was blindly going into it. I had never met Anna or Ryan. I had never spoken to either of them. I had no idea what they looked like. You see, they were the winners of my Set your time & Run Contest. Their 3 submissions were creative and stylized, however, they were either out of focus or of their feet. I couldn't wait to finally meet this fun couple and see their fun relationship up close and personal.

I was giddy when this tall, beautiful couple approached me at Union Station last Sunday. They were just as excited as I was and ready to rock the session and as always, my camera brought us all together. Anna and I gabbed about their wedding next summer and all the details that girls get excited over. When she mentioned that they just secured their date at the Villa del Sol d'Oro, well my jaw dropped and I was in love. In love with this couple, in love with their style and duh, in love with their choice of a reception venue.

Anna and Ryan, thank you for reading my blog. Thank you for reading your camera manual and figuring out how to use the self-timer. Thank you for being so cool and incredibly easy to work with. I wish you both nothing but happiness as you take the walk of life together. I can't wait to see all your fabulous wedding details! xoxo

Ryan's sister did Anna's hair and makeup before our session. How lucky to have such talent right at your fingertips!













When I saw this tunnel, I swooned and drooled a little. I just kept snapping as Anna danced around Ryan. While processing these, they reminded me of some of our favorite shots from our wedding day so in an ode to our photographer, I made a triptych. =)
