I joked before that we were going to get our engagement photos done here, but of course, we did not. The talented Steve Koo did our photos. Steve has been an online friend for years, so he was one of the first I thought of when it came to our wedding and engagement photography. We love his style: Not posed, just getting to the heart of the feeling and emotion of a moment. I also love how vibrant the colors in his photos always are. Since Steve is coming with us to Hawaii, I think he will make some beautiful wedding photos.
For our engagement photos, Steve and his assistant Nicky came over to our house early one morning. We decided to walk around our neighborhood, Logan Square, and just take photos as we go. Good plan, but it was seriously about a hundred degrees and as humid as hell that day. I don’t think it shows in the photos, though. The friends I’ve showed these to already have commented how the photos reflect our personalities and our vibe together: Lots of smiles and laughing, no mushy or weird poses. Very real, very casual, and very us!
So, without further ado:
We can’t wait to work with Steve more at our wedding. If you need to get some portraits, engagement photos, family photos or you need a wedding photographer, check out Steve’s portfolio or follow his blog.
