On a snowy day in 2009 I made schedule for spring engagement sessions. Here we are in 2010 – on a snowy cold day – doing the same thing. Must be the yearning for spring that inspires me to pick cold days to think warm!
We include an engagement session with all of our pricing. It is a great time for Roger and I to see you in front of the camera and a great chance for you to see us behind it. Typically brides to be are pumped about the session and grooms to be are less than optomistic. However – they typically end up walking away realizing that while we might be dorky – we don’t make you feel dorky or awkward. Roger usually ends up with a new friend, and girls end up looking really smart for picking us. The fears are then calmed and the wedding day goes without a hitch. Pure awesomeness.
So here on the blog we list specific dates and locations for these engagement sessions– the couple then picks which date and location they want and email me. First come, first serve. As the times become filled I will mark them in red meaning they are no longer available. In order for a session to take place there must be at least 2 takers. This year there will be rain out dates saved just incase. When you book your session I will let you know what the rain out date will be so you can mark it down. The first question I will be asked is “Can we do a clothing change?” and the answer is yes! So get out your calendars, start envisioning your wardrobe and get out your Crest whitening strips, because before you know it warmth and sunshine will be here!
