Pretty much the first thing Ashley told me when we met up for their Downtown Frederick engagement adventure was, “This is the Sean show.” Indeed, this was the Sean show! This playful couple – that’s how I like ’em – had no problems kissing at the top of a parking garage, sitting next to a bull statue, and dancing in the sunset.
They even brought multiple outfits to let me help them choose what would look best for their session! Smart thinkers!
Engagement sessions are IMPORTANT. This is such a short and unique time in your life. These are the days you were ENGAGED! Remember that butterfly feeling in your stomach thinking about being with the love of your life FOREVER? Remember when that special someone ASKED you to spend THE REST OF YOUR LIFE with her? Uh yeah… this is a special time filled with some of the most heart-soaring, head over heels in love moments. There’s no other time in life where you are planning to combine your life with a person you just cannot live without. It’s a big deal! I am a huge fan of documenting your big deals in life. 🙂
ALSO IMPORTANT: THIS IS YOUR TRIAL RUN FOR YOUR WEDDING!
I see you in front of the camera. I see with the love of your life. I see your best angles, calm your insecurities, and capture your unique quirks. . . It eliminates so many variables from the wedding day. You already know me, and I already know how to make the camera love you. 😉
Back to the Sean and ASHLEY show! Aren’t they the cutest?!?!? Their kids will ADORE these images!
And when we were done, we had a beer at Brewer’s Alley and talked wedding plans and about how they met one of my fave couples Tyler and Colleen! (STILL the world’s BEST best man speech… there’s a link to it in the post.)
You two rock! Seriously.
Ready to capture your love and create heirlooms that you can share with your children? You betcha! Looking for a downtown Frederick engagement adventure? Or maybe something in the woods is more your style? Send me a message, and we can chat about your vision!
