Turns out this follow-up engagement session happened to be the 6th anniversary of their first date, so canvasing the campus in the most dreamy fall afternoon light was laced with sweet significance as they showed me meaningful places to their relationship's history (the dorm of their first kiss! The dining hall they would eat at every Sunday after mass!) and others that I spotted as we went along. It was f-u-n! As in, I felt like maybe I shouldn't have been having as much fun as I was (and kept me awake that night after I got home brainstorming countless other ideas that would have been fun had we had more time!).
Photographing within the context of a theme was such a neat look into their history as a couple. It made me wish I could have the chance to do the same with all of my couples as a way to provide them with this meaningful memory and help me learn more about them and their story. I have a feeling this won't be my last college campus (hometown/neighborhood/office, you name it!) photographic tour. Or at least I hope not!
