Jill & Brent : Engagement Portrait Session
When you are engaged, it is such a special time. It has this fleeting quality to it. You have set a wedding date, there is a time limit on how long you get to use that special word, Fiancée, for your loved one.
I remember using the word, fiancée. It felt so fancy, maybe even a touch pretentious, to use it. It was almost a little embarrassing to say because it was telling the other person something very intimate… that you’ve chosen this person to commit to for the rest of your life … you hadn’t done it yet and it was exciting and scary all at the same time to admit that you’re taking this huge leap of faith.
And so, I always relish the engagement sessions. I guess I will always be a hopeless romantic. And I always say, engagement sessions have all the romance of the wedding without all the stress of the wedding day.
I loved working with Jill and Brent. Jill, is, I must say, totally adorable. She loves, loves, loves my photography already and I just met her in person for the first time at the session… so she had me at the word “Hello.”
As for Brent, it took a little bit longer for me to get my “read” on him, but after watching him with Jill I can definitely see how they were made for each other.
I am excited to share these portraits also because I got to use my new porch, officially, for the first time. What do you think?
