One of the traditions in Kellie & Craig’s relationship is attending USC football games with Craig’s family. When they told us about this we thought the campus would be the perfect spot for their engagement session. We carefully checked the calendar to make sure it wasn’t orientation or the beginning of the school, hoping we would find a pretty empty campus in the early evening hours. I (Jody) was really excited to visit the campus again, since I had been a freshman there myself when I moved to California from New York. We had done Crystal & Ryan’s engagement portraits there a couple of years ago, and I was more than ready for another visit. There are some new buildings on the campus, and lots of cardinal and gold flowers everywhere, but, for the most part, things are the same.
Kellie & Craig had their own game day traditions and favorite spots on campus that they shared with us. We recreated Craig’s game day “kick” of the California flag pole, picnicking in Doheny Park, and added a few of Kellie’s touches like the white frames she had bought to pose with. Aside from the NCAA commercial they were filming at Tommy Trojan keeping us away from that popular spot, we got to do it all. And it was all lots of fun for us. Kellie and Craig are fun loving and compliment each other perfectly. Their wedding day will be an amazing one…we can’t wait. Enjoy!
