Portrait Session: Kyla & Garrett

Garrett and Kyla approached me about documenting their wedding when they returned home from a long stint in South Korea teaching English. Garrett and I worked together a lifetime ago at the Apple Store in Buffalo and kept in touch periodically whilst he was teaching English in South Korea. Kyla and Garrett were a hoot to photograph. In our initial planning session Garrett ( who has a sense of humor and pop culture references similar to me) wanted to do something that could generate some buzz, whereas Kyla wanted something personal and memorable. Since I usually side with the bride in matters like this (sorry guys - happy bride, happy life) I agreed that we should concentrate on personal and memorable rather than zombie themes. Kyla, Garrett and I recently had an enjoyable and fun engagement shoot near the Delaware Park region where Garret proposed to Kyla. Delaware Park is such a wonderful place for an engagement shoot because of the versatility of the space. Between the stone bridge & tunnel, to Hoyt lake to the always photographed stairs of Albright Knox. Shooting at Delaware Park is an exercise in rediscovering a familiar space. Kyla and Garrett will be married this fall, for now their engagement session is a refreshing reminder how wonderful is it to marry your best friend. UNT, Nb
