Tattooed Brides: Why We Love to Photograph Them!

Tattoos are chosen for a special reason.
TATTOOED BRIDE

Spouses are carefully chosen for a special reason.

They are two decisions that are not made lightly because they are life-long decisions.

They will forever reflect who you are and what is important to you.

Prime Engagement Experience Locations

Engagement photography sessions have come a long way recent years.  Good-bye to the days of a stuffy studio with bland curtain backgrounds and awkward poses.  Helloooo to the opportunity to just be yourselves as you allowing the human with the camera to capture who you really are as a couple.
When choosing a location for your engagement experience,  the number one rule is to select a a place where you will have the most freedom to comfortably be yourselves as individuals and as a couple.  Sure, you want to consider the backdrop and some technical issues, but pretty much anything goes!
Below is a conglomeration of past engagement experiences to get your wheels turning.
