2011 Engagement Highlights – Love Letters and Destination Shoots

December 31st, 2011

As we look back at the year in review, the couples and fun places below….each image brings back smiles, laughs and fond stories!  We’ve had such a wonderful time documenting your wedding journey; thank you for entrusting us with such a special gift!  The engagement session is in every collection we offer for a reason.  It’s a warm up session, a get comfortable behind the camera session, a 2 hour excuse to make-out with your spouse-to-be session, a be creative with fun clothes and locations session, a beginning to a friendship with our couples session.  Frankly, we do them not only because of the fun and creativity but because we love showing up on your wedding day offering a hug, a remembered laugh and being emotionally connected to your day.

Below are some of the engagement highlights of 2011; we’ve tromped around Central Oregon and traveled to Las Vegas, Portland, Seattle and San Francisco to capture the love of these amazing couples.  Be sure to click on the links below the images to view the full session and for some of them, the beautifully written, personal love letters to their spouse-to-be.  To our love letter couples, thank you for sharing your story publicly for us and the world to share in your joy.

Happy New Year!
