Engagement sessions are a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera with your wedding photographer. It is also a perfect way to get photos for those save-the-dates you've been eyeing up! Here's a list of some of my favorite engagement session locations. Keep in mind, these are just some favorite spots, you'll want to make sure your engagement session reflects your personalities and style as a couple! Your session is about YOU - if there is any location that you have in mind please let me know and we will get started planning!

I also love helping couples decide on their wardrobe for their session. If you need suggestions or have questions about what to wear to make your session absolutely perfect and unique please ask
