When: October 18th, 2016 | Where: Las Vegas, Nevada | Theme: Urban
Daniel and Jade chose to go with non-posed photos for their Old Las Vegas engagement session as they are the type who are into staged photos but rather photos that capture the essence of who they are as individuals as well as a couple.
Captured by Ron Dillon Photography, this session was somewhat of an unplanned one. “We actually had no plans to have engagement photos taken, but the universe just tossed us and Ron into a shoot together on a random Tuesday when all of us had a free hour to make a new friend. We had no outfits planned, but Jade had a dress she wanted to wear and I had a shirt I wanted to wear and neither of us could be bothered to care if they matched. Ron’s eye for unconventional locations mixed well with our eccentric style and made for (what we think) is a great shoot!” – Daniel
Old Las Vegas Engagement Session
“I had originally planned on proposing on October 31st (our anniversary), but our ring designer got the ring done in 3 days instead of 4 weeks. I was so excited to have the ring that I just couldn’t wait to give it to her.
I tried to take her to the restaurant where we really connected for the first time, but they were closed for a private party. Luckily for me, my proposal was supposed to happen in the parking lot that we just couldn’t leave on that first night. I unlocked my door and pretended hers didn’t unlock so I could walk around to open her door and give her the ring. She was completely surprised!” – Daniel
Engagement Photo Session Advice
“Trust your gut as to what you will and won’t be comfortable doing, you don’t want your photos to seem forced. Take them somewhere you can be relaxed, and with someone who you can relax around.
We were very fortunate that we were able to connect with Ron immediately, which made the shoot just kind of happen while we had a conversation. We didn’t even realize we had been shooting for an hour by the time it was over, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.”
