Engagement sessions should be more than a collection of poses and a pleasant background. When we go out to photograph a couple prior to their wedding, we use this opportunity to capture their personalities and strong emotional connection. If possible, we integrate locations that are important and meaningful which lends to more relaxed and natural shots.
Kelsey and Nick are both fond of Seattle and skilled pilots so we broke their session into two parts. For the first part, we started at Pike Place Market and flowed into the surrounding areas including a nearby park that was almost pure yellow from Fall leaves. We ended this first part at the International Fountain in Seattle Center.
A week later, I met with them again to include their love for planes.
