Celebrate the Love!!!

Engagement-53Engagement-53 Subtle but LOVE-ly prop - yep, I had to use that pun.

These images are from a recent, super fun engagement session - so much so that we HAD to feature it. This is the photo story of Anna & Casey. They’ll be married next spring. If the wedding has the proportional amount of love as their engagement photos, then it should be spectacular. Oh, and his last name is Love so they added some extra love to a few of the images with props. I don’t mind props. After all we live in a Pinterest world. But for the The Loves, I think their props are perfect!

We prefer to shoot engagement photos for a few reasons. First, is to get to know the couple better. Each person has his or her own body mechanics and movements. And each couple also has unique movements, cadence & rhythm. After moving a couple through a few poses I can anticipate their expressions better. Second, we all get to know each other. They get to know my directional cues and how I work. But most of all we get to know each other. And this is critical. Having spent a couple hours with a couple makes all the difference on wedding day. These are the reasons all our wedding photo packages come with an engagement session.

The following images are only a few of their engagement photos. These are my favorites for various reasons. Mostly I love the way they love on each other. They are kind, tender, sweet & passionate. And the way they look at one another is powerful. And the light was amazing too! Engagement-2Engagement-2

Good looking young couple!

The private farm, with all its fencing, majestic trees, wooded areas and rolling farm land made a perfect setting.

The setting is a private farm out near Jacksboro, TN. The property owner was quite generous and I wish I could convince him to offer his place as a regular wedding venue. He has allowed a few couples to use it – free.

Have a look. Tell us your favorites. I spent a little more time at this shoot than I normally do because the light and sky kept getting better. Plus these two wanted to keep going. As a photographer I chase love and light. For this particular couple, soon to be Mr & Mrs Love, I was literally chasing light, love and The Loves.

If you'd like to see their full engagement session, go HERE. Oh, if you are in recently engaged and really want to see if like a photographer, book an engagement session with me. If you love it and want to use me as your wedding photographer, I'll give you $250 credit toward your wedding photo package. And if you don't like me, the shoot, the results or any other little thing, I'll refund your money and you get to keep the images. So there is no risk and you'll be like the Loves, you'll have engagement photos you love.
