As much as we love wedding photos and could look at albums all day, we also love seeing our couple’s engagement photos because they show so much personality! Engagement shoots are an opportunity to showcase who you are as a couple without the pomp and circumstance of wedding formalities. Talk with your photographer about what kind of vibe you and your fiance exude and try to find a location that speaks to you! Have fun with it!
