Most of what you’ve read about engagement sessions in magazines or blogs is a little off the mark. When you have an engagement session with us, it isn’t about you “getting used to our cameras,” or us “finding your best angles” so we can pose you on your wedding day. It’s about having fun, getting creative and going on an adventure with the two of you. But there’s also a lot more to it.
Engagement sessions are about celebrating who each of you are as individuals and as a couple. We want you to see what your fiancé sees in you and why they love you so much. We want you to recognize the look they give you that says “you are the one.” That is so important to carry with you through the years because the person you are right now is the person your partner fell in love with and wanted to be with forever. These photos will always remind the two of you of where you started, the fire and spirit that was inside each of you, and what is at the heart of your bond. Getting a reminder of that every day – so you see it, feel it and gain strength from it – will carry you through anything that comes your way. That’s what engagement photos should give you.
We’ve photographed engagement sessions all over the world – on top of glaciers, in casinos, on beaches, in living rooms, even on the streets of Hong Kong. And we love photographing couples in our hometowns, including downtown Charleston, the romantic horse country outside San Francisco, the stunning high deserts of Santa Fe and the breathtaking Dolomite mountains of Italy. So let’s go where your heart takes you and discover how wonderful life can be!
