There’s really nothing I like more than spending an afternoon with a couple celebrating their love in an environment that doesn’t involve cake cutting, ring exchanges and vows—better known as the engagement session. I include it in every package because it gives me the opportunity to get to know the couple, learn how they react in front of a camera and gives them a chance to get use to my sense of humor. Seriously, it’s one of the few times before the wedding where the couple can be themselves and have professional photos created that are totally stress free and relaxed. Here are some of my favorites from the past year. Some of them haven’t even been blogged yet, but I couldn’t wait to post them.
