When you cross an elementary school special needs teacher with a soldier you have a winning combination. At least that’s how I felt when I met Brent and Ellen. They were lucky winners of a free engagement session contest I ran and it couldn’t have gone to better people.
I always like to let couples choose their location for their engagement shoot. I feel like it’s best when it’s a place they feel comfortable and somewhere they can be themselves. I also love to shoot at new locations and the more excited I am about a shoot the better! Brent choose South Platte Park because he had fished there before and I think it was a fabulous spot!
This photo is one of my favorites out of the entire session. Sometimes when I see a couple in a position I really love I just start shooting from all angles. I didn’t think about Brent’s knee until I asked Ellen to get up. Whoops! He was such a trooper!
This looks like a happy ending but it’s really just the beginning for these two! I hope you have a wonderful life together!
