Hi guys! Before you take a look at Sarah and Riley's Nashville engagement photos, I want to tell you one thing. I'm giving away a book — Kid President's Guide to Being Awesome — over on my Facebook page. The people at Kid President are great friends of mine, and I love what they're doing over there. There's no catch to the giveaway (you don't have to like my page or share the post or anything). I just want you to leave a comment on the post telling someone why you think he/she is awesome. That's it! We're just spreading a little love around the Internet. So enter to win here.
Now, on to the reason you're here. I love when couples choose their own locations that are special to them, and Sarah and Riley did not disappoint. Riley went to Vanderbilt for undergrad. A few years later, he met Sarah, and they went on their first date, which included a visit to Fox's Donut Den in Green Hills. On a wonderfully warm and clear January day, they combined the two for their engagement session with a few portraits at Vanderbilt and a more photojournalistic approach for an engagement session at Fox's Donut Den.
We finished up at Vanderbilt right before 5:00, which, for those of you who live in Nashville, you know that's a precarious time to go to Green Hills. Riley took us through a maze of Nashville for a surprisingly quick travel time with no traffic. The people at the Donut Den were wonderfully accommodating, not only allowing us to take photos there but also giving Sarah and Riley a few gifts to take home.
When Sarah mentioned finishing their engagement session at Fox's Donut Den, I knew I had to do something with their sign. The first thing that popped in my head was a cinemagraph. I forgot to bring a tripod, but I held the camera as steady as I could, and I think it actually turned out OK.
