Adam is a grade school teacher and coaches high school basketball.  Debbie is finishing up med school and will be a pediatrician.  They both love working with kids and wanted to incorporate that in their engagement session.  I didn’t want to blatantly shoot at a school, but instead bring the feeling and elements of childhood to the shoot.  I wanted just playful touches to a still romantic shoot.  This is a love story after all.

I gave Debbie the chalk board and had her surprise all of us with a message… so cute!

My favorite part about engagement sessions is seeing this very innocent and pure love that couples share.  It’s beautiful to watch them start this amazing journey in life together.

Debbie also made these pinwheels.  The arts & crafts from grade school really comes in handy!

They are such a gorgeous couple, and they are just as beautiful inside as they are outside.  Her perfect hair & makeup was done by Angie Pham.
