Engagement Session Style Guide: Tips & Fashion advice for your engagement photos.
So you are engaged? How exciting! I remember feeling like I was walking on air with a near permanent smile plastered across my face after Josh surprised me with an engagement ring at our company Christmas party. Those months of being engaged were some of the happiest and most romantic times in my life. I couldn’t stop staring at my ring, it was so surreal! Josh could have hung the moon in my eyes. It’s was just an awesome feeling that I wish I could bottle. Now I’m not saying it’s all down-hill from there… we have a TON of fun together and I’m so thrilled to be his wife but those few engaged months were just special. That’s why I think every couple should try to document the beginning of their journey to become husband & wife with some casual and stylish engagement photos to capture this time in your life when you’re young and so in love! These are the kind of photos you’ll show your kids years from now and say “Look at me and your Dad, didn’t we look hot?” Engagement photos will become your first family portraits.
