An evening spend running around Downtown Little Rock, Arkansas for a our sweet friends engagement photos.
Little Rock Arkansas Engagement Photographer
When my bestie Erica got engaged and asked me to take their engagement photos of course I was THRILLED. But, I was also a tad bit nervous... 1) because I had just really started diving into photography as I've been strictly a videographer for the past seven years and 2) I wanted to make sure they were perfect for her! As a little engagement present - I had my boyfriend Skyler come along to film their session so we could make them an engagement film to go along with their engagement photos. (Check it out at the end of this blog post!)
Erica sent me her Pinterest board for inspiration, we set a date, and started brainstorming where we wanted to take their photos!
Downtown Little Rock Engagement Session
Erica and Witt met in grade school. He was her first boyfriend and FIRST KISS! How cute is that. They remained friends over the years and re-kindled their elementary love in 2021. Having their first official date at Vino's, we thought this would be a perfect starting location for their engagement photos.
Vino's has such a fun aesthetic. I'm obsessed with the checkered tile. The inside has a grunge feel and they have a patio in the back!
Arkansas Engagement Photo Session | Little Rock
We had several locations we wanted to hit so once they had a little bite to eat and a beer, we headed off to our next spot - Robinson Theatre. As a photographer from Little Rock, Arkansas - I love this place so much! It feels like you are somewhere grande and there are so many different spots around here to take gorgeous photos.
With just a short walk down the road and you are at the gorgeous Capital Hotel. Another vibey spot for engagement photos. The aesthetic is just *chefs kiss*.
It's romantic, moody, and the perfect place to stop in for a drink - if you're into that! Remember that, just like your wedding day, this day is about you! You can do whatever you want. Have fun with this!
Last but not least - we had just enough time to hop over to River Market rooftop parking deck and get some moody sunset photos and pop some champagne to celebrate their engagement and a fun, successful day of shooting their engagement photos!
As a videographer turned photographer - I think that both photography and videography are so important for any occasion.
This was such a special day not only for Erica and Witt but for Skyler and I to capture it for our dear friends and to work as a team with photo and video. He shot all the video himself while I focused on the photos. Before we left them for the evening, he asked Erica what her three favorite instruments were and then he produced the music for their engagement film.
