Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and recent engagements are in the air. When two people commit their lives to one another it’s kind of a big deal.
First comes love then comes marriage… after the engagement photos of course! As photographers we get to see a lot of people get excited about a lot of things, but newly engaged couples remain some of our favorite subjects. They’re smiling from ear to ear, and so deeply wrapped up in each other. They’re about to begin the next chapter of their lives together–there’s really no better time to get in front of the camera.
Engagement sessions are a great way to help curb couples’ camera jitters so they’re that much more at ease once the big day rolls around.
We encourage them to get lost in the moment and forget that the camera is even there.
We’ll get them comfortable with our shooting style and build their camera confidence. There’s no guests, no strict agenda, and no distractions, just two people in love appreciating their time together. Fun is the name of our game!
In advance of the shoot we’ll ask how the couple met, how the proposal went down, thoughts on the wedding, and romantic ideas for their session. We’ve got an arsenal of favorite locations sure to satisfy every personality and theme.
Be it woodland, coastal, rustic or chic–we’ll help them select the perfect backdrop, uniquely catered to the their personality and the season.
During the shoot we’ll embrace the provocative, the sexy and the sentimental, but above all we want our clients to get lost in the moment. We recommend outfit choices that they’re comfortable in, above all we want them to feel relaxed and confident. We take a back seat and allow the couple to simply enjoy each other, honestly and intimately.
The shoot itself is just as important as the photos we’ll capture to remember it by. We always get excited to hear about the sweet and creative ways our clients have used their photos: save-the-date invitations, wedding guest books and websites.
Some clients have even displayed them alongside wedding photos of their parents and grandparents at the reception–we just love how sweet and sentimental they can be. Whatever the reason, wherever they end up, they’re evidence of a special day together and an unforgettable period of time that should be treasured forever.
