Throughout the first few years of my business I turned away engaged clients, stating that I didn’t photograph weddings, sooooo….yeah…. no soup for you.
However, a few people snuck in, those who sort of tugged on my heartstrings saying that they really really reeeeaaaallllly wanted me to photograph them, but since I didn’t shoot weddings would I pretty-please-with-sugar-on-top capture their engagement? Since they used the magic word (sugar), I obliged.
And I liked it. A lot.
Photographing people in love is actually awesome. I would drive home from every session feeling all warm and fuzzy, smiling from ear to ear. After the 2nd or 3rd engagement session, I decided I would no longer turn these sweet lovebirds away.
This past year I invested in training geared towards engagement photography. I knew what I wanted our engagement sessions to look like and I wanted to ensure that I was equipped to make the photos that I had envisioned by capturing the unique connection between our clients. I wanted to photograph them, but more importantly, their love.
Capturing emotion is art.
I’m officially putting out the love-birdfeeder.
so..lovebirds…bring us your love. 😉
