As the days get longer, we get more & more excited about extended evening light and more opportunities for shooting outside (in addition to warmer weather, all the amazing plants in bloom and garden vegetables starting to take root)! One look at our calendar and it’s clear to see–it is prime-time for Engagement Sessions.
For many, this name is a bit confusing. True, you are more than likely already engaged if you are booking photography for your wedding and an “engagement” session may sound a bit anticlimactic. We even tried to avoid the term for a while, but it has such wide recognition that it looks like it is here to stay. It could just as easily be called a get-to-know-you session or a have-an-awesome-time-in-a-really-cool-place-while-capturing-your-personality-in-photos session. Regardless of terminology, we look forward to this session with each couple we work with! It is a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know you more and discover all the qualities that make your relationship unique. Plus, you’ll end up with some great relaxed portraits from just being yourselves and enjoying each other.
There is no shortage of awesome locations in the Northwest for your session, and we highly encourage you to do a little brainstorming and be as creative as you want when choosing your location. Of course, we are happy to make some suggestions too! We recently updated our portfolio site with a new engagement gallery to get those creative juices flowing.
