Congratulations on your engagement! When people think of engagement photos, they often think it means we’ve photographed the proposal. Actually, an engagement photo session is after you’re engaged and you want some fun, casual and laid back photos to share on your wedding website, have printed at the wedding and print on a save the date card. Or maybe you just want some practice in front of the camera! In fact, this is our top reason for recommending an engagement session.
It makes a world of difference to have had a little practice come wedding time. Plus, we’ll be like old friends already.
Engagement sessions can be personal, at your home or in your favorite bar. Engagement sessions can also inspire your guests, show off the beauty of the city where you’re marrying and also celebrate your love in one of your favorite places.
We love the opportunity to spend more time getting to know you both and also capture you in a more relaxed setting.
Venice, California Engagement Session
While we love our Pacific Northwest roots, we all know it can get a little rainy here. So we never turn down in opportunity to shoot in our sunny sister to the south…California. Win & Brandon gave us the chance to photograph our first Venice Beach engagement session and we can’t think of a better couple to have spent a gorgeous sunset engagement with.
Pittock Mansion Engagement
We love Dan and Ellen. Any engagement session that ends with us asking the couple to go “stand in these bushes” and soon after, the bride walks out with mud soaked feet, belly laughs and asking for photos of said feet…we’re winning.
Columbia River Engagement
We recently joined Mark and Katie for a couple hours in one of their favorite waterfront parks in Vancouver for their Columbia River engagement session. How can we sum these two up? They’re the kind of people you want to sit back and have a beer with. Sweet, sensitive and so kind to each other, yet lighthearted and always game for a laugh or a joke.
Sellwood Engagement Session
We’re so excited to bring you Carson and Todd’s sexy Sellwood engagement session today. It goes without saying that Carson is a knockout (hello red dress and legs!) and Todd is perfect counterpart, adding a chiseled masculine coolness to her feminine beauty. Hard to believe we have to wait until next July to photograph these two again. But we can’t wait!
Pittock Mansion Engagement
Daniel recently ventured out with Michael and Meredith for their Pittock Mansion engagement session. But first, Michael and Meredith love music so the session began at one of their favorite music venues in the city, McMenamin’s Crystal Ballroom.
Rose Garden Engagement
Shawn and Mint came all the way from Korea two days after their wedding to have their photos taken by us and go on a weeklong honeymoon in Oregon.
