Your engagement session should reflect who you are as a couple, the things important to you, and be in a location you love.
And that’s Kaylee and Tyler’s session to a T. They wanted to do their engagement photos on Tyler’s family farm. If you follow my work much, you know that nothing makes me happier than going to new places and finding the right light to capture important moments in time. Your engagement session certainly qualifies as a milestone moment in your life. It serves many practical purposes. It’s a time for me to connect with you so you are comfortable with me on your wedding day, and to learn the basic poses – which also relieves nerves if we have to get through your bride/groom photos quickly due to time restraints. It gives you options if you want to include photos on your invitation suite, and more space and time to simply celebrate the love you share. Engagement sessions are always such a joy for me to photograph, and this one was no exception. I appreciated their willingness to do anything I suggested. That always makes a fantastic experience for us all.
I’ve known both Kaylee and Tyler since they were in middle school, and being a tiny part of the next steps in their lives makes me smile. Even though they’ve both grown into amazing adults, they both have kept the fun and life-loving personalities that I remember from their years at JEBMS. It always amazes me how quickly time passes, and how love finds a way to blossom when you least expect it. And whether you suddenly see someone for the first time, or you’ve had a crush for years – finding your soulmate is one of life’s best parts.
Kaylee and Tyler, I’m honored that you asked me to do your wedding next year, and reconnecting with you both was such a blessing to me. I am impressed with how you two work together not only in day to day life, but also in planning your future. Here’s to a fun filled engagement year, and before you know it, we will be photographing your wedding. I’m not wishing time away at all, but I can’t wait to see how your wedding day unfolds. Love and blessings, Pat
