This couple is so stinkin’ cute! From their classic style to how much fun they’re having, it’s all just too adorable! As they ride along city streets and across railroad tracks, and twirl in a citrus grove (we’re reminicsing on this proposal! swoon!), they couldn’t look more in love! A city engagement for the ages, we say! We’re jealous Erin & Geoffrey got to witness and capture the love fest!
From Erin & Geoffrey…
Warning: This engagement session is filled with love, cuddles, music, and lollipop kisses…
When preparing for Catherine and Matt’s engagement, we felt the need to make their session pretty different from the rest, as we do with all our clients. They work together as hairstylists at the same salon that Matt owns, The Cut House in Lafayette, LA and have even won awards for their amazing work so we knew they were up for a bold, fun and spunky look.
Matt is from Abbeville, so Catherine brainstormed on portrait locations in the little quaint town to start with. We came across so many old and antique buildings with tons of color and personality, including an old automobile shop painted with some great vintage colors and an old abandoned lumber yard building right next door. We explored both places and had an amazing time! Catherine brought along so many things that showed off their personality, including skateboards since Matt is a skateboard enthusiast (he even showed us a few tricks he had up his sleeve), even Matt’s guitar so he could serenade her.
After taking a few fun photos with the props Catherine brought along, we had them change into the more formal outfits they had planned. Catherine came back dressed in an adorable little black dress with a tulle skirt (similar) that just fit her personality so well, and Matt showed up in a slick, tailored yet simple black suit with a skinny tie. We took a handful of photos inside the old Abbeville lumber building, then headed over to the citrus farm 15 min away, somewhere we had never taken any of our brides and grooms before.
When we arrived at the citrus farm, we watched their faces light up. We saw rows upon rows of huge satsuma trees going out as far as we could see. They were in awe at how beautiful it was and the fact that they had never seen it before. We walked down a couple of rows and began taking a few shots of them cuddling, laughing, dancing…These two lovebirds were amazing to work with and we’d do it all over again if we could. It was such a blast!
