I am so very excited to post my first blog for Dove Wedding Photography and share these images from Amanda and Dave’s engagement session with you.
We really try to encourage couples to pick places that have meaning to them to do their engagement sessions at. Since Amanda and Dave met while working together in an office in the Renaissance Hotel in Nashville, the hotel and surrounding area was the perfect place for their engagement photos.
The Dove Wedding Photography team has often talked about how our clients are people that we would find ourselves hanging out with. Amanda and Dave further proved our observation. They are such a sweet couple and Dave has quite the gift of making people laugh. I love it when I leave a shoot with my facial muscles hurting because I’ve smiled so much! Below are a few images from the session.
I chose this image because I love the expression on Amanda’s face. You can see in Amanda’s eyes how happy she is when Dave is holding her. I really feel that Dave’s simple white shirt helps your focus stay on Amanda’s eyes.
I chose the location on the left for several reasons. The first being Amanda’s dress went with the green tint of the windows. I knew that I was going to like this girl as soon as I saw her bright green dress. I love color and I felt the black background and the green windows really made her dress pop. I also love how Amanda and Dave are just laughing and enjoying each other. They are at ease. I believe this image was taken after Dave did an impression of their dog that had both Amanda and I laughing so hard that we almost cried.
The photograph on the right was taken in the Renaissance. I love how the escalator goes diagonally across the image and the two of them are towards the center of the image. Of course this photo was not as easy to take as it appears. Once I figured out the speed of the escalator, we had to work around people that needed to use the escalator. Luckily Amanda and Dave were great sports about going up and down a million times.
Congratulations Amanda and Dave! Here’s to many years of laughter, happiness, and green dresses!
