I’m not sure where to even start when talking about Alicia & Patrick. The couple completely blew me away the second they showed up to the engagement shoot. They agreed to show up at sunrise, aka holy crap early. It was before 7am and Alicia got out of her car looking so stunning she could have walked a red carpet. We had been planning this shoot for months… the props, the clothes, the location. Alicia was so amazing that she handmade a skirt just for the occasion and their friend let us use their vintage truck (thank you!). I had found the perfect location, created some fantastic vintage props and pre-planned the lighting to fit the scene.
Once on set, it was extremely obvious that the couple has strong individual personalities and yet together they glow and practically float on happiness. I would direct them to kiss and it seemed they would melt into each other, unaware there was even a photographer nearby. I could tell being near them even for 5 minutes that their love will last for a lifetime if not somehow longer.
A few days later I began going through the film and I could barely contain my excitement for the moments we captured. I hope you enjoy viewing even a little of what we did that day:
