Couple: Allison & Shamir
Here are some of my favorite images from Allison and Shamir’s home engagement session. Now, I always try to encourage couples to pick a location for their engagement session that means something to them. This could be where they had a first date, where they became engaged, or just anywhere that possess’ qualities that make their relationship unique. I love when couples have ideas for their session that are a little outside the box. Allison & Shamir were no exception here. We through around the idea of photographing the both of them in front of their first home together which is very much out of the ordinary and completely sentimental….two things I love to have included into an engagement session! Allison and Shamir also have some gorgeous natural light pouring into certain areas of their home so it made for some really lovely images of the two of them. I thought it also might tell a sweet story to incorporate some celebratory champagne for them both to enjoy as they basked in the loveliness of being engaged and the excitement of their approaching Wedding day. Another idea I like to encourage is an outfit change midway through an engagement session. I think if you have a dressy outfit and a semi-dressy outfit to change into then it brings some dynamic to your photos overall and changes up the look a little bit. So after an outfit change we then ventured to a nearby park to capture some images that included something else they enjoy together; biking! 🙂
Allison and Shamir are so effortlessly stylish and loving towards one another I could have photographed them all afternoon (which I almost did!) These two were such a dream to photograph and just can’t wait to capture their Wedding day which I just know is going to be so stunning & fun.
