Marie & Ernie are getting married next month and I’m so excited to be a part of their big day. We had their engagement session earlier this summer and we had a perfect day for it out at Allerton. I’m so excited to show off some of their favorite images and my absolute favorite engagement session product, our guestbook. This is the perfect way to combine your favorite engagement images with the keepsake of all the signatures and well wishes of the guests at your wedding day.
Guestbooks have been around forever, that’s not new. But I remember finding my parents’ in a box in our basement once and opening it to the first page to find out what it was. My mom told me it was their guestbook (in a box in the basement) and I didn’t look past the first page. Why? Because it was just signatures. But, imagine this book (hopefully not in a box in a basement, but even then) 30 years from now discovered by a friend or kiddo of these two filled with images of them looking so young and in-love and full signatures from all their loved ones… I bet those kiddos make it past just the first page!
Take a look at Carly & Tyler! I’m so excited to be photographing their wedding this coming fall and today I get to share a few of their favorite engagement images with you all. I met Carly a couple years ago when I created her senior images and I was thrilled when she called to talk about her wedding day.
We wanted a sunset look for their session but timing wasn’t working out with our schedules so instead we opted for SUNRISE! While not many clients brave the early morning hours for this look I just LOVE it and it lets us get really unique looks including the first ever sunrise I’ve photographed over this field at sandscreek.. the light is just not the same here any other time of day!
But as you can tell by their first outfits this session was a bit chilly so we opted to spend the second half of their session here in the studio where we could all stay much warmer! There’s always something so classic and timeless in studio portraits, especially black and white.
