One is to get acquainted with the camera and break the ice. By the time your wedding day arrives, we're already familiar and comfortable, which makes the day easier and more fun.
The other is the very act of celebrating your engagement. And I wanna freakin celebrate!
My engagement sessions aren't your typical one-hour shoot. They are all-afternoon endeavors that end with a great meal and drinks -- on me. It's a more organic and relaxed experience that mixes shooting with just hanging out. We get acquainted, share a few laughs, work out the jitters of the first few photos, and the rest of the day is a blast. Couples and I have explored cities, revisited places of nostalgic sentiment, gone hiking, gotten into water (more than once), hopped on a train, explored abandoned spaces, and more. Get creative. The possibilities are near-boundless and I'm always up for an adventure.
