Drab Januarys call for some serious mellow yellows. I’ve been thinking a lot about what makes for a successful engagement session and thought I’d share our experience because you know, most people only do this thing once
1.) Location Location LOCATION: It should mean something to you or reflect who you are. Are you the shoes off on the beach type or a person who can’t get away from that Prada city life? //
2.) MAKE IT A DATE: Because no one likes to feel awkward taking photos. Our goal is to simply have a good time and take pictures along the way. //
3.) WEAR SOMETHING COMFY: While style is totally important, the most important thing is that you feel totally relaxed and comfortable in what you’re wearing. Also, wear layers! This will allow you a change in outfit without having to find the space to swap clothing. Also, check out @junebugweddings for some inspiration on what to wear. They have some great articles for guys and gals.
4.) HAIR AND MAKEUP LADIES: this is perhaps one of the most overlooked elements of an engagement session. It’s really the secret sauce to loving your photos. It’s also the opportunity to have a trial run from an awesome vendor you’ve been considering for your actual day. (Try our friends at @blovelybeautystudio if you haven’t yet!)
5.) THINK ABOUT THE APPLICATION: how are you going to use the photos? Are they simply for Facebook? Are you using them for save the dates? How do you want to incorporate prints on the wedding day itself? Let us know, we can help!
I celebrated my first wedding of the year with Mia & Paul just 2 days after the #bombcyclone! Despite the crazy winds and subzero temperatures, we still managed to get some beautiful photos during the 15 seconds we were outside! 😉
Often teachers choose their profession because they love what they do and they love investing in our youth and making a difference. Unfortunately, teaching is not a high paying profession and they often need a second stream of income...not just for the money, but also for the opportunity to help others! Helping them get out of debt, or even just to make ends meet, along with the great satisfaction of helping them find their beauty again that only quality products can reveal! You don’t have to age gracefully...you can age backwards, and so can all your friends! Bring the Anti-Aging revolution to your school/faculty. If you’re interested in learning more send me a message & I’ll send you a number to call from a former teacher. And remember, Nothing changes if nothing changes! #AntiAgingRevolution
Kirsten... I’m honestly at a loss for words on how to describe this gal. She’s an incredible friend, the life of any party, “wicked” smart, and incredibly kind. Her wedding is coming up next on the blog, so stay tuned!!
