It’s always fun to show up to engagement session’s and not know what to expect. I don’t get the chance to meet with all of my couples before they book us, so it’s always a mystery what I’m going to get myself into. When I first met Julie and Allen everything was great, they were there with their dog and we walked around downtown getting some great shots and chatting about their wedding. Then it was time for their outfit change. Since Julie and Allen have copious amounts of school spirit, they wanted to incorporate something from USC and something from Tennessee. Julie chose a tasteful USC scarf, and Allen chose something… well… more boisterous. I’ll let you scroll down and check it out for yourself.

Hollywood Halloween Wedding at Zen | Heather + Brandon

To say Heather and Brandon’s wedding was “unique” just wouldn’t do it justice. Let me explain.

To start off Heather and Brandon were married on a very unconventional night; a night usually reserved for dressing up and going around to collect candy. With a distinctly Hollywood twist, guests dressed up in their best attire and gathered for some pre-ceremony cocktail drinks, including their signature drinks: “New Blood” and “True Blood” – A delicious mix of Vodka, Triple Sec, and Blood Orange Juice. In the middle of the room was a long red carpet, which everyone gathered alongside to watch Heather’s grand entrance. What happened next was one part fashion runway and one part wedding, as Heather paraded down the long red carpet to meet Brandon. A quick but emotional ceremony later, we headed for some quick photos and the dance party started. After breaking for a few toasts, the cutting of the cake, everyone was back on the dance floor for plenty of outrageous dancing before the night wrapped up. I have to admit, after typing all this, the whole thing sounds a bit crazy, but it was incredible how much everyone embraced the theme and really enjoyed the unique twist on something that can sometimes be an uptight tradition.

Gorgeous Fall Engagement Session in Greenville | Minh + My Hahn

To me, fall engagement sessions are all about the colors. With the leaves changing, the sunlight warming, and the temperatures cooling, it’s a perfect time to capture some photos!

Sounds great right? Well… the tough part of all this is when to schedule the shoot. The colors change constantly and one bad storm can blow most of the beautiful colors away. It’s like playing the engagement session lottery. While a good photographer knows how to hit the “jackpot” with the photos more than less experienced ones, the available surroundings still play a factor. Lucky for Minh and My Hahn, they hit the “jackpot” on both ends. An absolutely perfect fall day, and… I guess their photographer was alright as well 😉

I always like getting to photograph people that have similar interests to me. It always surprises me that I almost always have SOMETHING in common with everyone of my couples. With Adam and Emily, that thing is enjoying big, bold, red wines. Having spent some time in Napa (Jealous!), Adam and Emily told me all about the different Cabernets, Zinfandels, and Petit Syrahs they got to enjoy while they were out there. I told them about how we make wine, and how we had some incredible Amarone on our trip to Italy this past summer. Oh yea, and we took some awesome pictures along the way. Check it out!
