I love it when I get to meet couples before their big day, either with a site visit or an engagement session. It helps me get to know them a bit better and understand their vision for their wedding day. It also gives them an opportunity to feel more comfortable in front of the camera and get to know me and my approach to working with couples so that on their wedding day, they know what to expect and I’m just not some stranger showing up to create authentic imagery. I am also very thankful for these two making the drive up to Vermont during the week for their engagement session but a little disappointed that they left their new sheepdoodle puppy at home. 🙁 It’s probably for the best though as you may have seen more puppy photos for their session than of them! You’ll see more of these two next June for their wedding at the historic The Hildene Lincoln Family Home. It should be perfect timing for all the beautiful peonies to be in bloom in their lush gardens!
