Luthy Botanical Garden Engagement Session - Phillip and Sarah
There's something really incredible about including part of a couple's story into their photos, and Phillip and Sarah arrived at their session with lots of creative ideas for ways to do that. We absolutely love when couples have sentimental additions to their images instead of opting for a standard, traditional session!
First, to pay homage to Phillip's Chinese heritage, the couple wanted to show the Red String of Fate, a Chinese legend that says that the gods tie a red string between two people who are destined to be together to make it easier for them to find each other. This was such a beautiful sentiment that made for a fun challenge to capture. They also brought Pocky so they could recreate their first kiss on camera. This had all of us laughing, and the couple's genuine chemistry and great personalities were so much fun to photograph.
At the end of the session, Phillip and Sarah told us that it was actually Sarah that had proposed to him(after a Pokemon themed scavenger hunt! How cool!), so he wanted to make sure there were photos of the moment that he asked her to marry him.
We can't wait to be a part of their big day at Ewing Manor this fall! Congrats, Phillip and Sarah!
