Military Love Shoot

Engagement Sessions

I love engagement sessions for so many reasons. One is that they are a great way to get to know your photographer and feel relaxed on your wedding day when it’s time for portraits. The other reason is that many of us have never had professional photos taken. But the main reason why I love them is how they reflect couples’ lifestyles and their personalities. This one shot by Heather Payne Photography does just that, with an homage to Denny’s military dedication. I couldn’t help but think what an amazing gift + way to honor a session like this would be if your respective other is in the military. Thank you Heather for sharing!


Military Inspired Engagement | Courtney & Denny

From the photographer, Heather: Courtney and Denny’s relationship is like no other. Their dedication to one another and their selfless sacrifices they make for our country make their love unbreakable. Denny serves in the United States Air Force and they both live in New Jersey. We designed their entire session to exemplify their love for our country. The American flag represents their true American love. The suitcases and maps represent their willingness to go wherever the military sends them and the uniform represents the look of an unselfish hero and his proud wife embracing after a long deployment.

Their session took place in the little town of Taylorsville, North Carolina where Courtney was born and raised. We hope this session inspires those who serve in the military. God Bless!
