An Engagement Session with Purple Walls + Doughnuts

When Vania + Christine of Simply Bloom Photography sent me their latest engagement session, I couldn’t wait to see what they captured this time! This session really reminded what the difference between a good photographer is and a great photographer. Simply Bloom always tries to really capture the personalities of the couple in their sessions – or stories as I like to think of them. For Ashley and Jeff, they decided to recreate their first date! A bit about their first date from Ashley:

We had the worst/best first date. Everything went wrong (It poured, we got pulled over, he tried to carry me to the door but slipped and fell and threw me in the mud) and yet we laughed the whole time and it was still the best date I had ever been on! We started out the night by getting doughnuts and coffee at Krispy Creme and just drove around down town talking and looking at the old houses.

I think Vania + Christine captured it beautifully. What a great way to always remember how it all started! Thanks so much for sharing your work again with us! Oh, and yes, this is two days in a row with posts about doughnuts!
