How exciting!  Let the dress hunting, wedding day and honeymoon planning begin!

With all the other things you’re coordinating (the centerpieces! the menu! the music!) do you really need engagement photos, too? YES!

Engagement photos are a great time for you to get comfortable in front of the camera and for us to get to know each other. You can get all that nervous laughter and those awkward smiles out of your system now.  Engagement photos also help you show off your personalities in a more casual environment – when you’re not in heels, Spanks, and formalwear.

I’ve got heaps of great engagement shoot ideas – because you deserve a shoot that fits your awesome, fun, perfect relationship. Some ideas….

Where you first met each other:  Between the stacks of books at the library, fumbling for the door at the local coffee shop. We can go back and capture a bit of the magic.

Seasonal: Any season can be gorgeous – cold, snuggly winter days (think scarves, beanies, boots and gorgeous coloured coats!), colourful autumn leaves (oh how i love Autumn!),  lush spring blossoms, and hot balmy summers.

Images with your pet:  You love your partner.  You love your pet.  Love x 3!

An urban session:  If sweet walks in the park at sunset aren’t for you, what about photos in tucked-away alleys or alongside graffitied walls?

At your favourite coffee shop: Cozy coffee shops are a great way to take a quick break to refuel and catch some local snapshots. Also, a little caffeine never hurt anybody.
