Engagements are Important to Your Wedding Day
My heart will always love a bride and groom dressed in their finest in one of my gorgeous mountain locations found all over Idaho Falls, Pocatello, and into Grand Teton National Park. But getting engagements done is always highly recommended in my book. Crafting an engagement photo session that encapsulates the essence of your relationship and the joy of your journey together is a heartfelt way to commemorate your love story, plus its an amazing way to get to know your photographer. Choosing locations that hold personal significance, where you’ve shared special dates and moments, is always a great way to infusing your session with a deep sense of meaning and nostalgia. I love capturing candid moments that reflect genuine connection and love.
My sister lives in St. George and I’ve had the opportunity to do two engagement session there, this one was at Pioneer Park and this other one was Snow Canyon. They both have my heart as St. George is such an opposite landscape than Idaho and our mountains, but with its own kind of beauty.
Making Engagements Personal
My husband and I didn’t get engagements done as we were trying to save money for our wedding day. I regretted that decision for many years. I still adore my husband, probably more so now that we have been married for 12 years and have a family together, but there is something special about new love, about the butterflies you get when you are young and carefree, and giddy. Love changes and grows, but the foundation can always be looked back on with engagement photos.
One tip I have for your engagement session is to make it personal. By allowing your engagement photo session to unfold in the places that have witnessed your journey, you’re creating a narrative that speaks to your unique connection as a couple. These images will forever be a visual representation of your journey from that first date to the exciting chapter of marriage that lies ahead. Each couple is different and I enjoy getting to know them and shooting photos that reflect them.
