The natural, electric magic that occurs between two people in love is something I have grown to appreciate so much. Whether it’s a stolen glance or the soft grasp of a hand, love brings out the most beautiful and vulnerable parts of you. Getting to be present to witness such gorgeous moments is something I am so thankful for, and I still can’t believe I get to call this my job.
Engagement photos are such an important thing during your new journey in love, because of all that electric magic. Although your wedding day is (of course!) filled with tons of incredible and organic moments, an engagement session really taps into the core of who you are. They are the photographs that will preserve exactly how you are together in love – without the eyes of other people on you. They are more relaxed and allow you to be who you are, plus, they bring you to a more comfortable level when it comes to my posing and direction, which will make you a pro by the time your wedding day comes!
Dina + Ricky are the perfect example of how to use engagement photos to create magic, because wow, their photos are incredible. Every single image transports me into the depths of the forest, and the dreamy light streaming through the pines has this amazing way of warming me from the inside out. Dina + Ricky’s natural ability to pose, along with their infectious smiles and their amazing way of laughing with each other, created these timeless portraits that are sure to bring them back to the months before their wedding day each time they look at them. They were so giddy and so thrilled to be there that it made my job so simple! All I really had to do was crack a joke or ask them to just be with each other and the magic just poured from them.
Not to mention, I absolutely love that Dina chose to keep her outfit simple and stay true to who she is! The more casual vibe is exactly what engagement sessions are about: being yourself, in all its glory, no matter what!
I hope you guys love this super incredible spring time session as much as I do!
