There's a few reasons that photographing couples are some of my favorite kinds of sessions. I married my college sweetheart, my 100% biggest supporter in my photography. He pushes me, he cheers me on, and sometimes he even assists me at sessions and weddings.

But I'm gonna get a little personal: my husband and I were never able to have children. For a lot of years, I felt like we were forced to miss out on all the great memories couples made with their children, even getting beautiful family photos. When I became a photographer, I became passionate about capturing connection between couples. I believe that every couple, with or without children, deserves to have beautiful portraits that capture that special uniqueness that makes your relationship perfect just the way it is.

An engagement session is a fun, relaxed way to capture photos of just the two of you before your big day, without all the stress and other people involved. It also gives you the opportunity to get to know us before your wedding...feeling comfortable with your wedding photographer makes your special day so much better! Also, if you book your wedding with us, your engagement session is discounted.

These sessions are also perfect for post-wedding sessions, day-after wedding sessions and anniversary sessions!

in-home couple sessions

 

Five years from now, your life will be different than today. You may have kids in your life, you might not, but you’ll probably be in a different home, job or emotional place than you are today. So during this in-home session we’ll spend time capturing just the two of you, focusing on your connection and capturing your relationship and your life, as it is, right now, in all its uniqueness...in a super relaxed environment: your home! Whether the two of you are romantic, goofy, flirty or quiet, being in your most natural, comfortable setting – your home – will help us to capture that.
