Romantic Temple Coffee Engagement Photos in Downtown Sacramento.
When I first met Sarah + Cody, I immediately knew that I would connect with them. They wanted their engagement photos to emulate their everyday lives and be true to their story. We met up at Temple Coffee Roasters in Sacramento, California, grabbed some Chai Teas Lattes , and started taking photos!
We started around 2pm and this Sacramento Temple Coffee location was surprisingly filled with laptops and coffee lovers. You would never have guessed it because S+C didn’t even seemed bothered and we continued on with their engagement photos. A lot of people can feel a little uncomfortable getting their pictures taken with people staring! But these two were rockstars. We were in our own little world documenting their love story.
After a little while inside, we decided to head outside and down the block. There were the cutest old houses that served as a perfect backdrop. It felt like we were just walking down the street as friends, listening to music, and having a blast! We listened to my favorite blues playlist on Spotify. One of my favorite things to do during sessions or time alone with the couple is play music. It loosens them up, SET THE MOOD, and gives them a feeling of familiarity if you’re playing their favorite music. I have a JBL clip that I hook onto my belt loop so that the music goes everywhere I do.
If you want your engagement photos to feel more laid back and authentic to you, consider doing a coffee shop date, a pizza date, a picnic, etc. Whatever you and your partner enjoy together. Implement that into your photos. I know that will be able to tell your love story so easily and itll feel so natural to who you two are.
