I am so excited to share this awesome couple with you all today!!! Becca contacted me several months ago and asked if I would be willing to travel to Athens for some engagement photos at OU…ummmm, YES!!! I’d heard from friends about how beautiful the campus was, and I couldn’t WAIT to see for myself :) It was only fitting for their session to be in Athens, as she and Greg met and began dating during their time at OU.
Their excitement to be back on campus was palpable — it is so obvious from all of their stories that their years at OU were some of the best of their lives :) As a semi-recent grad myself, I related completely and was so glad that we were able to make the photos happen in Athens despite the distance! I’ve said it before and I will say it again, but I absolutely LOVE how this job brings so many fun people into my life! Becca and Greg are such a great couple, and I feel so blessed to have been given the chance to capture some beautiful moments in their favorite places :)
Also, I’m slightly obsessed with the outfits Becca picked out for the shoot..nothing like a pop of color to make a photo fabulous!The laughter & love these two share… :)
LOVE these next images — one of my favorite parts of shooting in a new location is finding neat spots & rollin’ with it…and luckily, Greg and Rebecca were all for the spontaneity! I LOVED this white wall against the brick and greenery…and I love this image even more :) :)
After I had Greg chat up his fiance for some fun poses, we then did a bit of walking.I told Greg to pretend this was him sealin’ the deal…and this was his response :) *cue the Napoleon Dynamite “Yesssssss.”Love this image on the left! Greg suggested this neat location — because no session is complete without some fountain dancing :) Or hill-running! Next stop was this cute little park in the middle of campus FULL of iconic “OU” landmarks! Gorgeous, Becca!!
Rebecca was an art student, so we made the trek over to this awesome art wall next — LOVE the variety these shots add to the session :) So cool!! Finally, we headed back to Athen’s main strip to finish the session out — I LOVED this fun door :)
Greg and Becca, thank you for such a fun morning this past weekend — I LOVED venturing around Athens with you both! But it was more than the beautiful campus and amazing weather (although those were great perks!) that made this session so perfect — it was you two! The ease you both have together, the way you laugh & tease each other, the love you share…you guys made my job easy, and it is so clear how perfect you are together! I can’t wait to see your wedding plans unfold — I know it will be a beautiful day :) (And not just because Becca is a crafting genius :P Check out her Etsy shop for some super fun prints & cards!!!)
Best wishes and all my love to you both!
