When I first started my business, one of my main concerns was going to the same locations for my sessions and not finding any new spots after a while. I don’t want all my clients to repeat locations and I certainly don’t want to get burnt out shooting the same backgrounds all the time. I try to mix it up as much as possible but when the chance for a whole new place comes around, it’s like Christmas for a photographer.
This is the Shoe Tree on Murray State University’s campus. It’s by the Pogue Library. Nobody knows when exactly the tradition began, but if a couple meets on campus, fall in love and then marry, it’s good luck to nail a shoe from each partner on to the tree.
Probably my ultimate favorite spot was the Lovett Auditorium. It was were they wanted to have their wedding but it just didn’t work out for certain reasons. They were able to get a key to it for their engagement pictures at least which was perfect!
I tell Aaron to get romantic and softly touch Annie’s check for a kiss and I get this in return! LOL Seriously, so darn funny!
But then the next shot was this… ahhh!! He can be funny but he is romantic too 🙂
Annie, you’re gorgeous! You’re going to be a beautiful bride!
We ended the session with a few shots in front of their new home. So darn cute! What a great shot to get and great idea. I can just see little kids running around in that yard!
