Jenn and Ryan were our second engagement session on Saturday so after leaving downtown, we hurried over to Ella Sharp park to meet with them. On their way down to meet us, Jenn had car trouble and it basically died right on the side of the road. Luckily, Ryan was driving separate because they were planning on dropping her car off to get looked at. But it turns out, her car was just too far gone so after our engagement shoot it sounded like she was going to be out car shopping to replace the old one. Now despite all this, we all had a great time during the session. In fact, the car dying was a running joke during the whole thing.
While I know that the morning was stressful for them. I believe that they had a great time with us getting their engagement captured in a beautiful setting. I really do believe that taking time to have an engagement session has so many benefits to the bride and groom as well as the photographer. I really think that this is something fun for the bride and groom to do together during all the stress of planning a wedding. It isn’t about the budget or the color, or the flowers. It is about the two of them.
You have to remember that you aren’t just having a wedding you are starting a marriage and you can never lose focus of that. I think it can at times be set onto the back burner with all the other things going on but it really shouldn’t. A bride and groom also get to work closely with their photographer for a time and make sure that their fit works. You are going to interacting with your photographer a lot the day of the wedding and I would hope in the days leading up to the wedding and following it. (More on this in the next post.)
For now, I will let you get onto viewing Jenn and Ryan’s sneak peak. Until next time….
Oh, and don’t forget to tell them how much you love them down at the bottom in the comments.
