My clients are really so brave. Its just not an easy thing to get in front of the camera when behind the camera there is someone you hardly know. Engagement shoots are so important to my business. They are the foundation of everything I do. I allow my clients to get to know me, so they can get to like me ……so they can eventually TRUST me. Trust with my clients is key. I spend most of the engagement shoot explaining everything I do and why. I apologize A LOT! “I’m sorry, I know your feet are in a weird place, but its really putting your hips in a great position and I promise I am only shooting you hips and up! ” When a rapport is developed with a couple, the great photos come naturally. I have been looking forward to this engagement shoot for a long time. The reason being, Jill has been super excited to have me as her wedding photographer even before she knew me. When couples come to you with such confidence and excitement its pretty hard not to share the same emotions. I selected the gorgeous Brecknock Hall for their engagement shoot. Before I left the office, I remembered an editorial I pulled from a magazine for inspiration years ago. It was actually a photoshoot of Faith Hill and her husband Tim Mcgraw. I pulled the whole office apart and I finally found it. I also took some inspiration from an editorial of a recent TV’s Bachelor/ Bachelorette couple- Don’t judge me! 🙂 With those two shoots in the back of my mind I set out for an amazing day with Jillian and Matt! Here are some of my favorites!
Leave the couple some love at the bottom of this blog! If they get more than 20 comments or 20 shares/or likes via facebook or instagram they will receive a special gift!….
