Erin & Ben’s Fun and Frolicsome Wynwood Art District E-session


wynwood art district e-session

You guys will LOVE the e-session I’m about to show you, I just know it! Fun-loving Erin and Ben live in Miami but they thought beach side engagement pics wouldn’t suit their personalities. Fortunately they discovered the Wynwood Arts District and found the artistic neighborhood perfect for their photo shoot. I couldn’t agree more. The bold artworks and colorful surroundings ended up enhancing the couple’s playful sides while providing eye-catching backdrops  for their love and laughter.

We have the always-brilliant Sara and Jason Martin of Concept Photography (see their previously featured work + BTL interview) to thank for the spectacular images. Here they are with a few words about the day:

A gorgeous couple with great style who are up for ANYTHING in an outrageous location – basically this shoot was a photographer’s dream!! When Ben suggested doing the shoot in Miami’s Wynwood Art District, we were a little apprehensive — neither of us had been there or knew anything about it. When we drove up our jaws dropped, repeatedly, at how many cool backdrops there were! Ben + Erin’s chemistry was palpable, and the result was pretty much our favorite engagement shoot to date!

Just how cute are they? I’m sure you’d love to know more about this twosome. Luckily we have the beautiful Erin on hand to tell us a little about herself and her Ben:

Ben and I are two people who live life laughing. We met at a mutual friend’s barbeque on the Fourth of July three years ago, so it was only fitting we also got engaged at a barbeque!  The one and most important thing that I remember about the day we met was he made me laugh. That would turn out to be what made me like him, what made me fall in love with him, and what makes me want to spend the rest of my life with him. Laughter and humor is the common thread of what makes us fit together. Me being a fast-paced, impulsive city girl from New York and him a relaxed, methodical southern boy from Georgia — we couldn’t be more different; yet we balance one another perfectly. I love how hard-working, genuine and kind-hearted he is and he loves how straight-forward (sometimes too blunt) and supportive I am.

We share a love for simply appreciating life and being there for each other as we grow individually and as a couple. Both being graduates from Florida State University, we enjoy Seminole football season with friends, traveling to new and interesting places and spending time with our families.

We got engaged on December 10, 2012 at home with our closest family and friends for what I thought was just a “barbeque”. Turns out Ben gathered everyone to pop the question! It was a beautiful moment to share with the most special people in our lives. I will never forget that day, not only because it is captured on video, but it was the day Ben made all of my dreams come true that I never even knew I had.

The story behind their e-session:

After racking our brains on engagement shoot locations, we ended up settling on the premise that we wanted to be different and we wanted to have fun. Being in South Florida “the land of beautiful beaches”– it was immediately decided that just wasn’t “us”. We stumbled upon a hidden gem in downtown Miami, the Wynwood Arts District. Filled will industrial buildings, art galleries and graffiti walls, Wynwood was fun, different and well, “us”. The backdrop of loud colors and unique masterpieces complimented our personalities perfectly.

We had an absolute blast with Sara and Jason exploring the area and getting to know both of them while they worked their magic! Even though our e-session was our first time in front of the camera, Sara and Jason made us feel extremely comfortable. With their organic approach, everything seemed to flow.  We cannot wait to see them on our BIG DAY in November and make more memories!
