Congratulations on your engagement! You are probably just starting to plan for your wedding, but want to get some professional portraits taken to commemorate the engagement, send out for save-the-dates, and to document this time in your lives.
Engagement photography does not need to be cheesy - engagement photos can be timeless, elegant, classic, artistic, and dramatic. Your portraits together should represent you as a couple, your personalities, and what you like to do together.
I can suggest locations, but I prefer to create something unique for every couple. Telling the story about the two of you is more authentic that way. Think about places that are meaningful to you: where did you meet? Where do you hang out the most? Let's go to your favorite place, do what you do for fun, and dress up like you would on your favorite activity together. Make each other laugh, remind each other why they are "the one,” and let me add an artistic flavor. Do you have an outside the box theme or idea?? I love it! Let’s chat.
Engagement photos are a great way to “warm up” for your wedding day! During the session you will understand a bit more of how I shoot. We will move around the location as I search for beautiful light. I will also draw inspiration from your personalities, the location, and your outfits! If you are looking for a more casual look, wear your favorite jeans or a summer dress. But, if you like the drama and the artistic feel I can bring to your images, be sure to dress to impress!
Proposing on the beach, or somewhere special on the Gulf Coast? Secretly hire me to capture the moment you “pop the question.” When he or she “says yes” we can do an engagement session right there!
The Pensacola region has breathtaking backgrounds for your engagement photos. Gulf Breeze, Navarre, Destin, and the Alabama Coast offer endless options: beaches, oak trees, fields, farms, architecture, dramatic sunsets, waterways... we have it all! Come to the Florida panhandle for your engagement photos – no matter what time of year, it is always beautiful here.
Are you recently engaged? I book engagement sessions Monday through Friday, and I strongly recommend sessions to be held early in the day or closer to sunset for better results. Let's chat!
