Engagements are always special moments and, often, they come out of elaborate plans to make the person you are proposing to feel special. If you are planning an engagement, let us know so that we can make sure to capture everything that happens. We have a lot of experience with these types of shoots, so we know how to be sneaky. Whether you are doing something low key, and classic, or setting up something large, and elaborate, we promise that we can get beautiful pictures, without ruining the surprise.
The first step of any proposal is the ask. Once you get to a pre-determined location, with all your nerves flaring, you get down on that knee and you ask you partner to be yours forever. This moment only happens once and, because of that, it is imperative to make sure that it is captured on film. The important part for us in this step is to capture the look of excitement, shock and love that exists between the both of you. We promise to make sure that that love, and connection, is felt in any picture we take of this moment.
We are just going to assume that, if you are asking your partner to marry you, the answer is going to be a yes. This step involves the offering of the ring on to the finger and the affirmation that your partner is making that commitment to be yours, and you to be hers. When we set out to photograph this moment, our goal is to capture the ring going on the finger and the hugs and kisses that come out of the joy of saying yes. We know this may only happen once, so we want to make sure you remember it!
A wedding ring is a very special thing and, no doubt, your partner is going to want to show it off to the world. Because we live in an age of social media, close up ring pictures have become the thing to do. Our goal isn’t to make these pictures about how big your ring is, but rather to capture how happy you are that this ring is yours. After all, no two rings are perfectly the same, and yours will be yours forever. When the ring is on your finger, we will get you amazing shots to be able to share with all of your friends and family.
The Ever After
The last step in the engagement photography process is to capture you, as a couple. When the surprise is over, we can finally reveal that we have been with you all along. Once this happens, we can set up to take “normal” pictures. Our goal in this step is to capture you as an engaged couple and to show your love, for each other, through the photos. These pictures can be taken in any manner you like, in any location you’d like to have them done.
