Congratulations on your engagement! Engagement shoots are all about capturing those beautiful moments between you and your partner during this exciting time of your lives. As photographers, we absolutely love them because they give us the chance to get to know you both better and show off our photography style months before the wedding day. But before we can snap those stunning shots, we need to pick the perfect spot to do it.
Just to be clear, nothing gets us more pumped than capturing photos that are truly unique and personal to you. So if there are special places that you both adore and that represent your style - let us know! These spots we're sharing are some of our favorite spots we shot at last year. They are meant to inspire you and show you what's out there, but don't be afraid to throw your own ideas into the mix too.
These locations are in no particular order, they are just the spots we love to shot at. :)
