A Non-Traditional Engagement Session

Arcade Engagement PortraitWhen Adam and Doug were brainstorming engagement session ideas, having a location that was truly authentic to them was much more important than shooting in a pretty but arbitrary place. One of their favorite spots to go out on dates is a local arcade called Ground Kontrol, and is located only a few blocks away from their home. While it’s a totally non-traditional engagement session location, it’s a place where they share many fond memories, and so it made perfect sense for them to start there session here. This is one of my favorite portraits from their session there – I love the high-key image in black and white, adding a classic, timeless quality to the portrait that was otherwise speckled by bright lights from the pinball machine to their right.

Engagement sessions are one of our very favorite things, and one of the absolute best ways you can get comfortable with the camera before your wedding day.
