It’s been quite a while since I’d shot an engagement session in Bryan/College Station and I was looking forward to trying some new things. I was also especially looking forward to working with Kendall and Grant after reading their questionnaires which really painted an accurate picture of them and their relationship. We started at the Texas Hall of Fame which is where they met one night when they went out dancing. Then we finished up in downtown Bryan, Texas and walked around taking pictures in the area. By the end of the session I was getting very excited about their first dance at their wedding but I’ll have to wait until December to see it.
I love hearing people’s thoughts and reactions to the session and I’m so very thankful that both Kendall and Grant submitted their responses, thanks!
*What was your favorite part of the session?
K: I loved every moment of the session. It was a great bonding experience for Grant and I, as well as getting to know Dianna along the way. It was a day that was filled with happiness, love and many smiles.
G: Spending time with each other and enjoying ourselves. We tried to treat the photo session as if it were another outing, so our love could be captured in a natural manner. It seemed to work out well!
*What were you looking forward to the most?
K: Actually getting to see the pictures! I was so anxious to see them because I knew that they would turn out wonderful after seeing others pictures that Dianna had done previously.
G: How the pictures came out! Seeing Dianna’s previous work, we were both so excited to see how our pictures turned out and show them to our friends and family. I kept asking Kendall, “Has Dianna emailed you yet?” or, “It’s been three weeks, maybe you should email her and ask.”
*When you look at the pictures, how do they make you feel?
K:Warm and fuzzy on the inside. I love beginning able to see our love in the tangible form and expressed through these pictures that we will treasure for the rest of our lives together.
G: Timeless; that our love is forever captured. Long after we are gone, these pictures will serve as a relic to the eternal love that we shared for each other.
*Which one is your favorite image?
K: My favorite image is the one of us sitting on the ground with the sunlight around us. I am in his arms which is my favorite place to be.
G: It’s hard to pick just one. My favorite would either have to be the dancing picture (at the place we first met), or us sitting in the alleyway picture with the sun beaming in. They both really capture important aspects of our relationship: fun and romance.
*Any recommendations or advice to future engagement-session clients?
K: I would recommend to future engagement session clients to just enjoy the moment. It is a great memory that will be cherished between each other and the love will show in the pictures.
G: Relax! Dianna has a great artistic eye, so don’t worry about how you look or what Dianna has up her sleeve. Enjoy yourself and remember this as one of your “firsts” as a soon-to-be proclaimed union.
