This Phillips Engagement Session truly represented this couple! Following in her parent’s footsteps, Sandra’s love for drag racing cars would forever change her life. Sometimes love finds you in the strangest places, as is the case for Sandra and David. Amongst the sounds of screeching tires, screaming fans, and checkered flags; Sandra kept noticing a particularly handsome man around the track and with a little help from her parents, love was in the air.
After hearing how these two met, we had to incorporate their love of cars into their engagement session. The two cars used in this session hold special memories for the couple. Both cars have been passed down from Sandra’s parents and this allowed us to honor their memory and their love of the track.
Crump Park turned out the be the perfect location for this shot. It is conveniently located near Sandra’s dog grooming business and her home. This allowed a short distance to haul the cars for the shoot.
With the help of her son Koen, we were able to find just the right angles for both cars. We created a variety of different looks for the collection of portraits. These images were displayed at their ceremony and are now proudly displayed in their home. Our favorite poses were the two individual shots of each of them in their respective cars, Sandra in her mom’s and David in her dad’s. Both of these cars will be the background for the ceremony, again incorporating her parents’ memories into the wedding. We could feel the presence of both Sandra’s parents as we worked through the session, pose after pose incorporating both cars, old and new memories, and lots of love.
