When I first sat down with this couple to talk about their wedding, I knew we would get along based on our mutual love of good food and beer. After an amazing meal together, they booked me and we started planning for their engagement photos. When they suggested having their engagement session at the downtown Phoenix restaurant where they had their first date, I was beyond excited! I emailed the managers at Postino Wine Cafe to make sure they were on board. They were happy to host this photo session and their staff was beyond gracious during the shoot!
We kept this session low-key and intimate. We started off with drinks while we chatted about things like their wedding planning and their first date. Being in the exact spot they first met while talking about their story brought back lots of nostalgia!
More of this Phoenix restaurant engagement session
One of my favorite parts about Postino is the decor. Postino Central in Phoenix, where we shot this engagement session, was the very first Postino restaurant! It was built inside an old brick and stone post office, which is also where the name comes from. My absolute favorite part, though, is the bruschetta. We all shared our favorites before the rest of the photo shoot!
As much as I love exploring nature and featuring the most rad locations in my photos, I always want a couple’s session to feel like themselves. If this means your engagement session takes place in a Phoenix restaurant, or even in your own home, I am here for it! Reminiscing on their first date was the perfect way for this couple to celebrate their engagement. See more galleries for unique engagement sessions below!
