As 2022 wraps up, you know how I love my recap blog posts looking back at the year! Let’s jump in and look back on all of our 2022 engagement sessions!

My 2022 shooting season consisted of thirteen engagement sessions alongside many wedding days and next chapter sessions. Engagement sessions are a sweet spot in the wedding experience and wedding planning process. It’s time that my couples and I get to know each other better… At the session and even before the session as we plan all the details!

It’s true when I share that I believe photos are a special way to celebrate your engagement. And who doesn’t love more photos?! This time with our couples is truly unmatched because I get to photograph them, but more importantly, I get to know them even better as a couple and spend quality time with them before their wedding days.

More often than not, engagement sessions are the first time our couples have been professionally photographed together. What an honor that I get that job! For the couple, that often brings some nerves, excitement, and lots of planning. I love texting my clients back and forth as we brainstorm outfits, locations, champagne pop moments, and photos with their pups – I truly love this part of my job!

Engagement sessions are the perfect opportunity in working together where I help our couples feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Let me tell ya, from start to finish, our couples become photo pros at these sessions!

From city skylines and rooftops to grassy fields and everything in between… Engagement sessions are my jam and get us even more excited for each couple’s upcoming wedding day!

Like I mentioned earlier, these sessions are a sweet spot in the planning process… There’s truly something special about spending time together in person and getting to know each other more intentionally and in a super relaxed and fun environment. And if you know me, you know that I’m a talker, so I’m thankful for that gift at engagement sessions to help our couples feel more at ease and like they’re out and about with a friend.

Plus, one of my favorite tips is to plan a date day or night around your engagement session… Grab drinks to start the session, make a dinner reservation afterward, or heck, take the day off and make the day all about getting ready for your engagement session! These moments before your wedding day are moments that you’ll never forget.

Cheers to all of these engaged couples throughout 2022!!
