Engagement Photography in Review : 2011

Engagement Photography in Review : 2011

Photography

One of my favorite things to do as I gear up for the new year is to plan engagement sessions. I adore getting to know my clients before their wedding, and the opportunity to see how they love in front of my camera makes me feel lucky. Really darn lucky if I was being honest. Each session reflects the core of their love and highlights their personalities (afterall, they choose the location, their wardrobe, and the overall aesthetic), and watching their love unfurl has its perks.

Namely, these perks come in the form of seeing the world through the eyes of lovebirds. And, really, the world is a beautiful place.

Here are a few of my favorites from 2011…

Happy Monday!

    I love how different each is not only for the location but actually the feel. Each couple is so different, it is really nice to see them all styles compared.
