Mary + Jon {part 2}

You’re probably thinking that you missed part one of this engagement session, but you didn’t. Even though this nerdy engagement session at Round 1 happened after their picturesque engagement photos at Huntington Library, I’m blogging it first. Come back next Monday for all the gorgeousness that is spring at Huntington Library.

So, yes. Nerdy engagement photos. This session is the dream come true for a dream I didn’t know I had until I met Mary and Jon. Even though we wanted some photos that were a little more refined, it would have been a disservice to them if we’d skipped this huge part of their personalities.

Side note: I see more nerdy engagement photos like these in the future. Many of my couples are nerdy like me, and even though I don’t actively try to recruit rad couples with board game obsessions, Lord of the Rings tattoos, and NT personality types, it just happens. And I love it. And I love them. And their weddings are the best. Did I mention I love it all?!?

Nerdy Engagement Photos

This session was almost too much fun. Almost like it should have been illegal. Not only were Mary and Jon in their element (especially Jon), but this session was a TON of fun for me to shoot. There’s nothing like shooting in an unfamiliar environment to get your creative vision to kick in. Though I did almost nothing to visualise this session ahead of time, it turned out exactly as I’d hoped.

Most importantly, everything about these nerdy engagement photos is so completely representative of Mary and Jon and their relationship. I can’t actually imagine telling their story without it being in this place. Thanks to Round 1 for being so chill about us shooting there!

Mary and Jon, your wedding is not soon enough. What do you say about getting married this May 4th instead? 😉 In all seriousness, you guys are THE BEST, and I’m so grateful for this weekend, from Huntington Library to arcade games, to being your live audience and eating coconut fried chicken. Best. Weekend. Ever.

xx,
Megan

P.S. Tune in next week for Part 1!
