Engagement sessions are some of my favorites because they are so fun to document. The couples are always joyfully in love, filled with the excitement and anticipation of what their futures hold together. Even though they may not know quite what to expect, they are eager to start their beautiful journeys together, hand in hand. Their genuine smiles are contagious and make my heart so happy. They remind me of all the beautiful stages in life—moments in our lives like engagements keep us going and excited about the future.
Documenting Each Unique Love
One of the best parts of engagement sessions is observing the different types of couples. They all have unique, captivating personalities. Some are affectionate and intimate, desiring more romantic shots. Other couples are fun-loving and laid back. They enjoy being the life of the party and keep me laughing throughout the session. And some couples are creative and artistic, celebrating a style that is unique to them. Engagement sessions are common, but every couple comes with a remarkable story. I love hearing about how they met. Some have hilarious, innocent missteps leading up to their engagement while others have more serious, inspiring stories to tell. I strive to capture the essence of these couples—to convey a little bit of their story and a lot of their character. Candid and genuine expressions are my absolute favorite to capture.
By encouraging couples to just be themselves and have fun during their photo sessions, I can highlight their love, their stories, and their personalities without forced poses that detract from what makes them who they are. Instead, they can joyfully take in the moment and celebrate taking the next step together in their lives.
Capturing, and documenting the Engagement Photography Washington DC has to offer is a true honor. Thank you to all those who have trusted me with such an honor!
