Engagement portraits are so important because they are the first official photos of a brand new family. They show your real, everyday relationship during such a special chapter of your life. Your wedding photos will be gorgeous, no doubt, but chances are that your relationship is much more casual and laid-back than your wedding portraits will suggest. An engagement session will document the everyday romance and humor that makes you so great together.
Do the two of you love to cuddle up in a favorite coffee shop? Do you go kayaking on weekends? Do you cook together while sharing a bottle of wine? Let's choose a setting that is meaningful to you and tells a genuine story about these priceless, early days of your relationship.
Is this style of engagement portrait just what you're looking for? Contact me with questions or to book a session. I'd love to hear about that wonderful person you're marrying!
