A Minimalist Engagement Session: You You & Peter

Engagement / 2011 . 02 . 24
modern minimal engagement session nessa k

When I met with You You and Peter, we spent most of our time just talking about how much they love to travel and their love of good food. From that first conversation I knew we’d be a perfect fit. You You and Peter are awesome people and fabulous clients. Truly; and I know how lucky I am to always have amazing clients. I get some of the most funny, friendly, and incredibly stylish folks around.

And when I say stylish, I mean it! During this session, You You was actually stopped and photographed by a fashion blog for her outfit. That has to be THE best “you look great today” compliment someone can receive!

This engagement session was featured by the awesome ladies at Brooklyn Bride, if you’d like to stop by and check out that feature! I adore this session and I’m so happy to be sharing it. Minimalist locations, lovely couple, amazing light; just two people, in love.

    Nessa K,

    It’s been a while sense I’ve stopped by your blog to show some love, however, I’m always on your twitter showing some love.

    Talking about love, I love these images because I feel the love between the to. You once again, captured everything beautifully. I admire you constant push with your photography and I love that we have something both in common, hustling for what we love.

    On that note…let’s keep our shared gift going; keep on hustlin’

    until next time,

    Amazing work, Nessa, I love it all, but my faves have to be the window shots, no, the stairs, no, wait, the ones in the underpass. Okay, so I love them all… the couple is gorgeous, and so are your photos.
