I love the way she is trusting him with her eyes.

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. 

Yep, loved wrapped in light!

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.

This is one of my favorites - black & white, playful, great light, and tons of love between them.

For Aimee, it was her eyes when she got in close & believed in Eric’s protection.

Her confident eyes tell us she is completely protected by him.

For Eric, it was his eyes when he looked at Aimee.

Her smile always gave him a smile - always!

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.

Love wrapped in light!!!

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.

I love this photograph!!!
