Popcorn Engagement

I often suggest that couples should consider bringing meaningful props to their engagement session.

This couple works in the film industry and thus popcorn and peanuts were a great choice for them. When they arrived at the engagement session location, they opened their trunk and showed me dozens of props.

I selected the popcorn and peanuts over many of the other props because she had gone to the trouble to find the containers and pop some popcorn and I felt that I had no choice but to choose those specific items.

At the time, I had no idea what a great decision I was making to pick those items first. This photograph is designed as an opening spread that sets the tone for the rest of the album and builds a small measure of suspense due to the anonymity of the subjects.
