Engagements are so engaging!  Romance is in the air in the anticipation of a lifetime together.  Shooting an engagement is important for several reasons.  First, this time allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera.  It also gives us the chance to get to know one another, figuring out how we work best together before the wedding.  Next, you can showcase your personalities in a more casual setting, while creating some fun captures for wall portraits, your wedding sign-in book, sign-in board and Thank You cards.  If shot early enough, you can also provide the images for your Save the Date cards and invitations!  Best of all, you can remember this special time forever.  This is your time together.  Great engagement shoot ideas include at the place he proposed, at your favorite restaurant, doing your favorite activity, where you first met, with your pet, your favorite city skyline, a downtown urban setting, an amusement park, the local fair, the beach, vintage-styled with old furniture, your favorite coffee shop.  The possibilities are endless!
