We’ve been brewing up this post all night so we can share with you the bewizarding session of our engaged couple Kathy and Eric. One of the best things about being engagement photographers is meeting couples who share a love for all sorts of fascinating things…like magic! For all you Harry Potter fans, we’ve got a treat for you, and we’re not just talking about the butterbeer.
Click through to see the affects of the Amortentia potion, totally works. =)
Before we ended the session under the bokehlicious lights of downtown Portland (above), we started off at a nearby trail. I love easy going couples who aren’t afraid of being silly in front of the camera. This couple was game for most anything and that’s always much appreciated! =) This was our first session using our new Lensbaby Edge 80 lens too! You can see the effect it creates straight from the camera on some of the photos below.
Kathy and Eric were college sweethearts and their favorite mode of transportation? Bike, 10-toes, bus, car? Long-board!
I loved the reaction of walkers-by as Kathy and Eric zoomed by them.
Kathy had the whole collection of Harry Potter books and even her very own magic wand! Gotta put that to use right?!
Wait a minute, did she cast a spell or is Eric an Animagus?
Nothing like a cold mug of butterbeer after a whole days worth of wizardry.
Poof! Into their new outfits and off to some of our favorite spots in downtown Portland. =)
Kathy and Eric, we can’t thank you enough for braving that chilly afternoon. Here’s a special photo below just for the two of you… what better way to announce an engagement than to do it Harry Potter style! =) We can’t wait to be there for your special and truly magical wedding day.
