Engagement shoots are awesome because it captures that exhilarating phase of a relationship where you are lost in twitterpation The wedding day photos are something you will treasure and pass down to decedents for hopefully many generations, but there is something nice about having a fun photoshoot that captures your blossoming love without the stress of the big day surrounding it. It is also nice for me as a photographer to get to know a couple in front of the camera before the stress of the big day, because then I am better prepared for how to approach the wedding, and for sure I know that Ali and Rick’s wedding is going to be amazing!! They are so fun, and so natural and at ease with each other and in front of the camera. I also loved how Ally brought so many of her own creative ideas to the shoot, and she even made some of the props herself. I love collaborating like that, and I think it shows in the pictures!
