Alicia and Desi are getting married this May at The Riverview
. I recently had a chance to photograph their engagement session at UCONN
, in Storrs, Connecticut. Not only did Alicia and Desi attend UCONN, Desi was the punter and captain of the football team. We had a great time walking around campus taking photos at various locations, and the icing on the cake was when Desi got us all into the Burton Family Football Complex
Desi really liked this idea a lot, for the wedding I'm brining this very football so I can get more photos with it (and all of their rings).
I'm sure I don't have the exact story right (sorry!), but this image and quote are pretty special to Desi. When he was on the team he used this quote. It ended up all over the place that year, and is still in the locker room to date. Desi is modest and Alicia is proud of him, so thank you Alicia for sharing this with me, I'm so happy to capture this for you both.
You can't take engagement photos at UCONN and not have Gampel Pavilion
in at least one picture.
