There is nothing better than a gorgeous engagement session and these photos are truly ones that you will look back at for years to come. With the excitement of your upcoming wedding, there are the best way to show off you both together as a couple. If you choose to have an engagement session, it should be all about you and your significant other! They should be photos that bring out the personality in you as a couple, as well as the love you have for one another. That is exactly what the couple did that we wanted to share with you today. Emily and Dan decided to let their personalities shine through with a fun cocktail themed engagement session!
The couple held their unique and adorable engagement session at Point Defiance Park in Downtown Tacoma, Washington. And you guessed it, this pair not only has a big love for one another, but they have a big love for their chosen drinks as well!
Reese, with Simple Light Photography Co., one of our amazing SnapKnot members, had the opportunity to photograph Emily and Dan for their engagement photos. Here is a little background on the couple and their engagement session, and stay tuned for more details later in the post:
“Emily and Dan are just the coolest couple. They met through Tinder of all things! They swiped right and the rest is history!
Their first date was meeting up for a drink and they love discovering new cocktails and flavors together. It seemed fitting that we would include a delicious cocktail in on their engagement session. So, we decided to bring in the amazing talents of Happy Camper Cocktail Company to design a cocktail experience that would fit Dan and Emily and their vibrant personalities. When you book with me, I can’t do anything small! I love to design a shoot and choose locations that really truly reflect your personality and give you a memorable experience. You won’t be engaged again right?! So, let’s have fun with it!”
We hope you enjoy this fun cocktail themed engagement session from Dan and Emily!
Here are more details from Reese about the couple’s engagement photos:
“As for Dan and Emily’s shoot, Happy Camper Cocktails Company was a truly special element to make this experience memorable for them. The company takes the farm to table experience one step further with their vintage trailer mobile bar, serving “garden to glass” cocktails inspired by the flavors of Washington state. Behind the bar of their converted 1966 Aladdin camper, complete with a draft system, the team serves cocktails that wow guests with freshness and flavor. The flavor comes not from secret ingredients, but local ones, all prepared into cocktail mixers, syrups, shrubs and bitters by the proprietress, Belinda Kelly. Inspired by the beauty and bounty of her native Washington, Belinda seeks simplicity in cocktails, as in life, and this cocktail designed specifically for Dan and Emily, the Wildly Old Fashioned, follows suit. With just 3 critical ingredients and a quick stir, it is a perfect fit for a slow summer evening. Blackberry softens the spice of rye whiskey while the bitters pack a punch, bringing forward the intensity of the other flavors. They enjoyed it at Owen’s Beach in Point Defiance Park, while soaking up those last bits of sunlight.
This engagement session was such a blast! Dan and Emily are having a lovely intimate wedding in December at Within Sodo in Seattle and I can’t wait to be there to capture it! Simple Light Photography Co. favors adventurous and fun couples, and Dan and Emily are definitely going to have a life of adventure!”
