Almost every couple I work with says they feel a little nervous at the beginning of their engagement session. It’s totally understandable because for most people it is the first time they’ve been professionally photographed! I aim to make every engagement session feel fun and natural and I always see those nerves melt away as the couple’s love and chemistry shines through.
That being said, if you’re feeling nervous it never hurts to follow Mandy and Jeff’s lead and kick off your engagement session with a little champagne! We started their engagement session in Hermann Park with a little champagne picnic and followed it up downtown at OKRA Charity Saloon – one of my very favorite places to take classic, intimate engagement photos. I can’t wait for Mandy and Jeff’s upcoming wedding at Madera Estates!
