Engagement sessions are great to get to know us, as well as us getting to know you. We can do a location session with multiple clothing changes out at your favorite spot. Or you can keep it easy using our studio location. Especially on hot days when spending a long time outside is not a good option. Our location has a few things like brick wall and a couple trees. This gives you the look of the outdoor photos but yet close enough to step inside to cool off. That’s exactly what Suzanne and Joe thought would work best for their session. Their wedding is quickly approaching in October so we wanted to be sure to get the engagement photos done soon after we met. Suzanne was familiar with our work because we photographed her sister’s wedding. It’s wonderful to see people coming back to the studio from families we have worked with before – it shows that our quality and service is seen by everyone at the wedding not just the bride and groom.
When they arrived we discussed the clothing options they had brought and what would be best as far as studio backgrounds verses outdoor areas. The one thing they knew for sure is that they wanted to include their hiking sticks in the photos when they did the casual clothing. Suzanne and Joe like to hike in the fall months so they chose some jeans and long sleeve shirts to represent this. Well in the 100 degree weather of July we really had to pretend we were enjoying a nice fall hike! They may have been faking the cool but the surely were not faking the smiles and love for each other. I just kept taking so many photos of them laughing, looking at each other and enjoying the time together. It is going to be such a joy to photograph them on the wedding day when they are surrounded by even more love from family. I feel like they are going to love all the photos from the engagement session, you made it so hard to only take a few photos!
