I’ve known these two love birds for a few years, and their sweet little dog. They are such a beautiful couple, and just recently got married. They had a wedding on the beautiful Georgia coast. What a fun engagement session this was!
I love this shot! Engagement sessions are one of my all time favorite things to photograph. I love getting to know a couple in front of my lens, and love to make the shoot FUN! So many of my couples tell me that they were nervous or uneasy going into a shoot, but that they had a blast by the end of it. I love to hear that. You should have fun with your photographer. Obviously my top priority is to capture every event or portrait session to perfection, BUT there is a lot more to it than that. I want to keep my subjects loose. I want my subjects to have a blast. I want them to feel like they hung out with a friend for a couple of hours. Having your photo taken SHOULD NOT be a painful experience if you are in the right hands. 🙂
For most engagement sessions I choose at least a couple of different locations. I try to find out what kind of ‘look’ my couple has in their vision, and then it’s my job to make it a reality. There are a ton of locations in town that I use for different sessions, but I’m always scouting for new locations in town. I like to use several venues to give my couples more options than they ever imagined. I want every engagement portrait session to be richly diverse, well rounded, and unique for every couple. I also want it to truly showcase the love of my couple.
Cheers to these happy love birds!
