Downtown Nashville engagement photos, featuring Joe and Rebecca! –
It was maybe a month before the Downtown Nashville engagement photos session we had, that I talked to Joe on the phone. As a general stereotype, guys are known for being a little bit too simple and not as romantically spontaneous as the female gender. BUT, after working with several of these guys on surprise marriage proposal photos and in this case, surprise engagement photos, there’s a lot of hope for the male species. LOL. He said he wanted to surprise Rebecca with a fun romantic couples getaway to downtown Nashville and arrange a surprise engagement photoshoot, and dinner at The Melting Pot! So we worked the plan together.
Joe and Rebecca are both Michigan natives. Rebecca still lives there and is a nurse, and has mixed feelings about organic foods being the end all be all. 🙂 Joe is stationed at Fort Campbell and active military, Army. They had both been married before and had lived and learned. Through healing and personal / spiritual growth and rebuilding, they found an amazing support system and love connection in each other! All of which was very evident in these lovely engagement photos!
None of these photos were scripted or posed, it was about me documenting the fun afternoon in downtown Nashville. One cool thing about our downtown, we have our crowded hot spots but also places where you can find your own corner to hang out and breathe. Doing these Downtown Nashville engagement photos would document their day and love perfectly. Just me, my backpack, Fuji XT-1 and 35mm F2. Backup body and lens, spare batteries in tow. Traveling lightly still.
There was something powerful about this photo. Some might say, well…it doesn’t show Joe. Well, it does. The sun in her hair, and the hand. Hands are very intimate and this particular composition emphasizes the love and touch of the hand and the calming mood it instills in her. Nerd moment over, lol.
This is where Joe revealed the surprise dinner reservations to Rebecca and I walked off into the sunset after a fun time with them. I hope you’ve enjoyed these Downtown Nashville engagement photos, and the couple will cherish them forever.
