I shot Courtney Efurd and Powell Bryant’s engagement session on May 24 in Rogers and Bentonville. Long-time runners, they both attended the University of Central Arkansas and competed in cross country and track. I’m always looking for something personal about my clients to work into their sessions. We started Courtney and Powell’s engagement session at Rogers High School, where Courtney attended high school and her parents both still coach track. The idea of the baton and wedding date came up during a consultation with Courtney and it made for some great “Save the Date” photos. The second portion of the session was shot around Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and nearby Orchards Park. Courtney and Powell are a very fun, laid back, but spontaneous, couple and were very willing to do whatever came to mind during their session. Their wedding will be on Dec. 27 in Rogers. Can’t wait to get to work with them again on their big day. Here is a quick selection of a few of my favorites from their engagement session.
