I love taking engagement photos. The joy is so fresh on their faces, the bright memory of the proposal still playing out in their gestures. It's easy to capture the couple's personality, both as individuals and as a pair. Lost in happiness and in love, their smiles and laughs are right on the surface, needing only the smallest reason to show up, shining on their faces. It's a joy to shoot engagement photography sessions.
As an engagement photographer, I use a combination of natural portraiture and careful photojournalism. During your session, we'll go to one or more locations. Shooting outside brings out so many wonderful elements in engagement photography. The sunshine, grass and gravel, the air – it lends space and life to a photograph. The great thing about being outside a studio is the freedom it grants. No stiff poses, no forced smiles. My brand of portraiture leaves you room to be yourself. Goofy or serious, sweet or thoughtful, the photos I take will fully reflect the real you.
Another benefit of the engagement photography session is getting to know each other. You'll learn my shooting style and we'll get comfortable, making it that much easier to take fun, relaxed photos at your wedding. When you get married, the last thing you want to be worried about is whether or not you'll get along with your photographer! The engagement session paves the way for your big day.
Really, the best way to get an idea of my engagement photography style is by browsing my portfolio. You'll see couples, each completely unique, with real smiles and real love in their eyes. The way I shoot is tailored to each couple's personality. If you like my style and want to get in touch, please feel free to contact me! I'd love to hear from you, and I can't wait to meet you.
Your love shines through every photograph. As I watched you photograph Julie & Beruk’s wedding, I saw your love and passion. What a wonderful blessing for us all.
