This was an incredibly fun shoot to say the least. There were a lot of things that stood out about Neil and Lydia when we met them. Their joint love for running and farmer’s markets, the fact that their favorite song is their very own rendition of “Would You Light My Candle” from the Rent soundtrack (only when sung by them), and their weekend routine of wearing cozy wool socks and sharing “steaming hot beverages”.
But the most fun – and unique – thing that stood out, was how much they love popcorn! Making popcorn together is one of their favorite things to do together, and was even part of their proposal! We absolutely love finding what makes our couples unique, and when someone mentions popcorn as much as Lydia and Neil did, our wheels start turning!
So we put together a super fun, popcorn happy, colorful-streamer-filled “Popcorn & Love” engagement session. From a festive popcorn garland, to a popcorn fight, to holding each other under the setting sun, we love how unique this shoot is to Lydia and Neil. And a huge thank you to my mom who helped bring this garland to life by stringing all the popcorn together (moms are the best!).
