Today we have photos to share from Alisha and Keith’s styled military engagement shoot with Stacey from Simply Couture Wedding Photography. Stacey is here to tell you about their shoot!
Stacey: I was super excited and thrilled that Alisha and Keith asked me to shoot their engagement photos. They knew right away that they wanted their engagement shoot to be in the scenic area of Oakland, right outside of downtown Pittsburgh. Prior to shooting, they asked about bringing along some props to make their shoot more personal, fun, and memorable. I love shooting with props, so I eagerly agreed but I had no idea that it would involve guns (unloaded, of course)!
Alisha and Keith meet in high school, but it wasn’t until Keith was stationed in Afghanistan that they started to grow closer. They would talk and write every chance that they had, and while Alisha was telling me their sweet love story she pulled out a bundle of letters and notes that they had written to each other during their time apart. I work with couples all the time but I have to say that it was truly refreshing to work with a couple that didn’t have to speak about their love. You could clearly see how much they adored each other just by the way they looked, laughed, and held each other close to keep warm on that dreary winter day.
