Shawn and Taylor Engagement Session
Updated: Sep 28, 2022
This wonderful shoot took place at the Toledo Botanical Garden Metropark. Shawn is a calm and shy guy while Taylor is quite energetic- perfect duo.
A gentleman will always catch you if you fall
I love this type of images because they are artistic. When displaying a ring, why not include the couple as well?
Alright, this shot is uniquely funny, is it just me or does it seem like it's Shawn's legs hanging off the ledge? ))
I believe classics must be created regardless of how much style you try to bring with your photographs. It's hard to imagine earlier ring shot on the wall because it's just too creative and it doesn't feature both of the people's faces. A shot like this one on the other hand is great for a wall prints
A bog obsession? YOU BET! I am just about as obsessed with these naturally green areas with still water as a photographer can be. Beautiful greenery and vivid reflections in the water, what's there not to love?
Another perfect portrait! But this one is truly candid. I love being able to balance myself on ledges and railings because I can create shots like these without a drone.
Another vantage point. Look at how natural these photos are because of simple direction that I give to the couple without invading their vibe.
Ok, so when I was starting out as a photographer I had this feeling that shots where the couple is by a tree are too cliche to capture. Well, I matured out of that thinking. Have you ever tried to involve a tree in your outside activities together? Hug it together, grab each others hands while tree is between the two of you, lay down your heads on a tree- do something with a tree and see how your energy interacts with nature.
I know... WTF? But for real, this is more fun to do than it actually looks, and is easier said than done :)
I like silly little things like this. I'll give a little direction and the lovebirds take off like eagles from there.
The amazing thing with me is variety that you get. I'll create things that don't quite look like each other. Enjoy the creative process!
Simplicity of this shot along with background - foreground elements create an effective part of the story I'm telling. Look at how wonderful the expressions are here.
We all love shiny things, but Shawn has found his shiny thing that shines brighter than everything else in his life. Beautiful chemistry between two people in love.
Now just be honest, does this one look boring after all the visuals I've been giving you? I know, I know, it's not as visually striking as other shots, but it's a classic and therefore couple gets a shot like this from me as well.
