Congratulations on your engagement! This is quite an exciting time, and we bet you are looking for fun, romantic images that show just how you feel about each other. Engagement sessions are so much fun, and we really enjoy creating just those type of images. We are very free and fun with our engagement portrait sessions. We try to give rough ideas of what we’re looking for in a pose and let the clients’ imagination give some more structure to the images. This allows them to be a part of the creative process and gives us the ability to create images that we wouldn’t have thought of. We used to structure it a lot more and found that usually doesn’t work when trying to get people to relax in front of a camera.
Austin is a great place to shoot your engagement portraits too. There are so many great locations from downtown Austin to the Hill Country. There are dramatic skylines, pastoral fields, rambling creeks, and breathtaking vistas. A lot of the engagements we photograph end up starting at the Texas State Capitol if we are planning on shooting in downtown Austin because the grounds are so nicely kept up and the parking is a lot more manageable than anywhere else downtown. One of our favorite things about the Capitol is that it seems you can take pictures just about anywhere there, inside or out, without breaking any rules. Plus there is no session fee charged by the location. If the couple is very proud of the Lone Star State, we can highlight the iconic features of the Texas State Capitol building like the dome, or we can shoot mostly on and around the manicured grounds and live oak trees which would make the engagement look like it took place at a beautiful outdoor location.
As with anything we do, romance is the key, and we work very hard to showcase the romance in our clients’ engagement pictures. We’ve photographed very shy people before who felt really awkward in front of the camera at first, but we do such a great job at loosening them up and relaxing them that by the end of the shoot they are having so much fun just being themselves. We always manage to portray the couple in a way that almost shocks them as the final images end up looking so intensely romantic. We shoot easily some of the most romantic engagement portraits in Austin and love being able to do that for couples who don’t think of themselves that way.
Our engagement portraits are very unique and everyone who has us photograph their engagements can’t believe how good they look.
