I really enjoy photographing engagement and pre-wedding photography sessions. Every couple that I have photographed always brought a unique personality of their relationship to the engagement shoot. Some were playful and quirky. While some were more romantic and reserved. Whichever the case is, we always manage to have fun and enjoy the engagement photography session to the fullest extent. It is a great time for me to spend a day or a few intimate hours with a lovely couple and capture all the special moments of their affection.
As engagement sessions are not rushed like those portrait sessions on the wedding day, I get to take my time and really engage the couple. I play more than the role of a photographer; I am a storyteller, a director, and stylist. I paid attention to their hair, makeups, clothing, and the environment as I direct and assign tasks to the couple as if they were actors. I give them the freedom to act out their roles. Every so often, I would give them directions and suggestions. I seldom interfere so that they can naturally be themselves. I take advantage of the session to get to know them on a personal level and to get them acquainted with being in front of the cameras. If you are camera-shy, it’s ok. I have enough comedic materials to keep you laughing, smiling, and entertained.
