When it comes to an engagement session, you don’t need much to make it fantastic! Some couples choose to come up with a theme, other’s bring props, sometimes pets are involved too. The one thing that I can’t recommend enough for your engagement session is LOVE! I mean, of course you love each other. DUH! That’s why you’re getting married, but a lot of couple’s don’t feel comfortable showing that love in public, aka the dreaded PDA! But here’s the thing, love doesn’t have to mean making out in public! Of course a smooch here and there is preferable, but sometimes just simply holding hands or giving each other a hug is enough to create a gorgeous moment you’ll have forever. Remember this is about YOUR love story. I could force you to kiss all session long, but if I did that, it wouldn’t be YOUR STORY. I’d much prefer to capture the little quirks and gestures you have together as a couple.
Katie & Corey are a perfect example of all the “little things” moments. The one rule I gave them during the session was to ALWAYS be holding onto each other. I didn’t tell them how to hold each other or pose them like paper dolls, I gave them the freedom to be a couple however they saw fit. Just look at all the different ways they love each other?! Isn’t it fantastic!
Their wedding was pretty incredible too…but that’s another blog post!
