Before I started my business, I used to read posts from other photographers describing how excited they were to work with certain clients after receiving their very first email from the couple. That somehow they just knew this couple would be so much fun by the way they wrote an email. An email? Really? Give me a break, no one can be that exciting in an email. I thought they were making it all up.
I thought wrong.
Elliot and Shayna emailed me and I immediately understood what those other photographers had written about before me: some couples just exude joy in everything they do—even while writing emails! And it’s true, I was excited to work with Elliot and Shayna just from the excitement that they showed when they wrote to me. But when I met them for coffee the morning of their session, it was pretty evident that their excitement had nothing to do with photography, or me, or even the engagement session in general; it just exudes from them when they’re together. We spent the morning all around State College, finding the bright spots of fall that still remained even in the slightly dreary weekend weather, and not a minute went by they Shayna and Elliot weren’t laughing together! It was so much fun to capture that joy in those moments, and they reminded me—as all of my clients do—why I love doing what I do. So thanks, S&E, and enjoy some of my favorites from our morning shoot!
We started the shoot in the same place that Shayna and Elliot first started dating… State College’s Waffle Shop! A few shots at the Lion Shrine… quintessential for any Penn Stater! Too cute! This color kept showing up all OVER Elliot and Shayna’s shoot. You know I love some mustard yellow! Shayna, you are ADORABLE. Love. Love! LOVE! Work it.
Enjoy this session? Let Shayna and Elliot know below! And like Stephanie Dee Photography on Facebook to keep up with all the latest posts!
