Seriously. Isn’t this the cutest couple you’ve ever seen?!??
Meet Wale and Lola. Wale is one of my talented second shooters, and he proposed to Lola, his wonderful girlfriend of years and years, in December. It was great to hear the behind-the-scenes updates from Wale throughout the year as he planned the proposal – from where to buy the ring to how to pop the question. Great guy that he is, Wale managed to create a memorable, romantic evening, and Lola was completely surprised and thrilled when he asked her!
Desperate to photograph the beautiful couple and eager to use my camera equipment again before my wedding season begins (this Saturday!), I asked Wale and Lola to model for myself and a few photography friends at lovely Barrel Oak Winery. Our goal was to practice new techniques and just get used to shooting again, but inevitably we had a little too much wine and conversation before we realized that the sun was about to set and there wasn’t much time left for pictures. Considering the rush and quickly-fading daylight, I think we still managed to get some pretty photos! Clearly, the good-looking, too-adorable-for-words couple deserves all the credit. Seriously. Couldn’t you just eat them up? :)
