An engagement to remember must be romantic & full of magic! And for me, the wedding photographer, they are tremendously helpful too. I get to learn the body mechanics and how each couple interacts with each other. And as a wedding photographer, I want to share the simple process I use. Aimee and Eric are just the couple to feature for this post.
How they found us
Before we start, Aimee found me via a family member. We did all of our correspondence over email and text. I am old school & prefer a phone call or in person meeting. But it seems more and more of our clients prefer a simpler communication via text and email. I am adapting.
Love Wrapped in Light
All that being said, Aimee and Eric hired us for their wedding early in 2017. The package they chose includes an engagement session. We picked a spot and discussed the theme. They gave me pretty much full creative license. And I prefer great love wrapped in great light – it’s my go to move.
Engagement Photo Process
I moved them throughout the location and through various poses. I am trying to discover their connected-ness. At the same time I am trying to discover unique expressions.
For Aimee, it was her eyes when she got in close & believed in Eric’s protection.
For Eric, it was his eyes when he looked at Aimee.
And once I discovered their individual traits, I put them in poses that urged Aimee to lean into his protection & coaxed Eric to watch her face.
This is what I call an amazing engagement session. It starts with an amazing couple, which trusts my process and me; mixed with some great light (weather) and then me helping them find & express their love for one another.
Thank you Aimee & Eric. I am proud to be your photographer.
