Nikita and Kevin Engagement in Tucson, AZ
A couple that plays together, stays together and in this case, the age-old adage rings true especially for Nikita and Kevin! During their almost three hour session, we played together, laughed and joked while Nikita and Kevin braved cold waterfalls together. This adventurous young couple wowed me with their determination to get the perfect engagement pictures. And with their enthusiasm and kindness, I couldn’t help but be inspired.
There is nothing more romantic than wearing a flowy dress during a couples session. It gives a flirty-feminine vibe to nearly every shot and it’s a dream to photograph. Nikita perfectly coordinated the pastel lavender flowers with her man’s soft blue collard shirt. Notice how well this outfit combination in a variety of different locations. We were able to walk around the resort and in every single location, Nikita and Kevin looked perfect. Even inside a waterfall!
Why This Session Was AMAZING
Because Nikita and Kevin were willing to take risks to get the perfect shot, we ended up capturing so many more images than if we would have played it safe and stuck to the sidelines. Even though they weren’t always totally sure what my brain was cooking up, they were still willing to try which makes all the difference in any type of session. In fact, they were SO willing to get down and dirty that they even ended up covered in leeches at one point! But even those images ended up turning into priceless memories, so it was well worth the shock of leaving the waterfall and discovered leeches all over their legs! 😉 Thankfully, everyone came out unscathed. Well, everyone but the leeches, of course!
But not only that, Nikita and Kevin were willing to show off their love. Rather than to be shy about sharing a few kisses here and there, they welcomed it and were willing to play and flirt with one another which translated extremely well on camera. I think that this level of romance can be difficult for some folks because it can seem embarrassing. But, when it comes down to it, the memories that you will want to have of you and your spouse are the ones where it seems like you are the only two left in the world together.
