Engagement Photography used to be a simple affair. When I got engaged six years ago, I headed to the beach with my sweetheart, a great photographer, and about 45 minutes until sunset. Since then, engagement photography has truly become fine art. A couple hours is now the minimum amount of time set aside by my couples. Most shoots now involve multiple locations, a beautiful wardrobe of outfit changes, and whimsical props. We've seen this trend develop as wedding photography, itself, has evolved. Once considered second rate, wedding photographers are now highly esteemed as some of the greatest photographic talent out there. Sara of Sara France Photography worked with my clients Jessica and Andrew to create a number of looks they had personally designed. Check out the amazing photos below. These will truly be treasured!
Remember that your engagement photos are the portraits that will hang on walls for years (even decades!) to come--and often decorate part of the wedding itself. They capture the love of the couple at one of it's sweetest times. And they serve as time pieces that will be highly valued for years and years. I am completely in love with this trend!
