When I meet up with couples for their engagement sessions they typically tell me that while they are a little nervous, they are also excited, something I am very used to hearing and being sensitive to. Paul told me straight up that he was going to pretend I wasn’t there, which is exactly what I was hoping for. I will usually tell each couple that it will be less like being together for photographs as much as being together and someone is capturing the special moments they create. I like for engagement sessions to feel more like a mini date for the couples I am photographing and this is best accomplished when the couple is more attentive to being with one another and enjoying the quiet moments together. Laura and Paul did just that, enjoyed each other’s company, creating special moments to look back on and remember whenever wedding planning gets busy. They were fully present to one another and the pictures we created came out so beautifully. I am very much looking forward to their barn wedding next year, have a great day and enjoy!
