Engagement sessions are so important to me. Many of our couples live out of state and choose not to have an engagement session, which I totally understand, but they are so worth doing. It is the best way to get more comfortable with me and with being in front of the camera. Most of our couples feel nervous and awkward at the beginning of their engagement session, but by the end everyone (even the grooms to be who “hate having their pictures taken”) remarks at how fun and easy it was. It helps me know ahead of time if someone is a constant blinker, but it also gives me an oppertunity to know my couples even better, and hear more about their wedding plans.
I was so excited that Sasha and Nick came up from New York to spend some time in Hartford for their Engagement Session. We met up at The Capitol and then wandered around Bushnell Park, the carousel, and eventually down to the constitution plaza area. It was a complete blast. They are such a fun couple, I could photograph them all day. I am dying to photograph their wedding in February!
