Becca and Matt | Busch Gardens Engagement Session

Engagement Sessions

May 24, 2012

I absolutely love getting emails from people who are not only super excited about their wedding, but about their photography as well! Becca emailed me a few months ago about her wedding next January and from her very first email I knew we would be a good fit! When we were finally able to meet in person and I asked about how she and her fiance got to know each other, I was excited to hear that they spent lots of time hanging out at Busch Gardens (John and I did too!!) and had their first official kiss on one of the roller coasters! I have been dying to shoot a session at Busch Gardens for a while, so when she said that, I meekly suggested we do their engagement session there. I was thinking she would think it was a lame idea, but she lit up and said she thought it was an AWESOME idea!

John and I met up with Becca and Matt to hang out and shoot their session last Sunday. It was drizzling, but that ended up being okay because it drove a lot of the tourists out. And really, Matt and Becca are such a gorgeous, fun loving couple, they could make the park look beautiful in any weather conditions!

Matt asked Becca out on their first official date on the Loch Ness Monster! We definitely had to get a few shots with it:)

I LOOOOVE this last one. Big puffy heart LOVE IT. But it’s not technically “right” and not my usual style, but I thought it was cool and decided to share it too!
