April & Ward’s Giant Scrabble Engagement Session

If you’re a regular reader of wedding blogs, you already know that Scrabble tiles have been used lots of times in e-sessions. Nothing wrong with that of course. However I’m excited to present a fresh, quirky, and totally awesome way of incorporating the Scrabble theme into your photoshoot — use ginormous tiles and pose with them just like April and Ward did!

April happens to be a Scrabble fiend — she loves the board game and is a beast at it. The talented folks at GetzCreative Photography headed by TJ Getz always make it a point to get to know their couples beforehand and this fact popped out to them as a cute idea to expand into a theme for a shoot. As you will see below, it turned out fabulous, funky, and oh-so-adorable!

How cute are they, and don’t you just love this idea for an e-session? It’s also time to get to know the lovely couple a bit better so luckily Ward’s here with the details:

April is a physician, psychiatrist. She is certified  for Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Forensic Psychiatry. I just sell stuff… been in sales in some form or another all my life. I have the opportunity to be a stay at home dad for our first child, Liam, who will be born in less than a month! April is from Michigan, and I am from Texas.

If you’re wondering about how this cool couple met, I also got Ward to talk about their love story:

Our love story is pretty cool. In 2009 April wrecked her Civic Hybrid and at the time I happened to be working at Volkswagen in Columbia, SC. She had had an old school (1979) Diesel Mercedes while in college, and her dad suggested that she check out the new Volkswagen TDI Clean Diesel. She came in, test drove, and put a deposit down on the car while waiting for her insurance settlement. Over the next two weeks we text each other constantly, and started hanging out the day after she picked up her car.

We got serious with our relationship the following May, and I moved in with April in July of 2010. We were engaged in September of that year (leading to the e-session in March..) We were married Halloween weekend, 10-29-11 and it was a BLAST!  We moved to Greenville in June for April’s job, and as I said earlier are expecting our first child around the 24th of September. Year 1 engaged, year 2 married, year 3 baby!

(I’m featuring their awesome wedding here soon so please watch out for it!)

Ward also has only the nicest things to say about their photographer and the e-sesh:

 TJ is amazing, he came up with the idea for the Scrabble theme and I love the way each picture has meaning without any sort of captioning, TJ really did a great job of staging the shoot around the Scrabble words he was using for each picture, plus it was a complete blast!
