If you're brave enough, winter is a great time to take photos, especially if you want to highlight your love of the season without getting married in the cold!

As a photographer and past-bride, I always recommend an engagement portrait session. Are you questioning whether or not to have one? DO IT. This is why:

Comfort. If you are apprehensive around cameras or intimidated by having your photo taken, it will show in your wedding portraits. Engagement portraits are a great time to get to know your photographer better, strengthen your relationship and see how they work. For us as photographers, it’s the perfect time to find your best angles, what makes you smile naturally, and your personal preferences. Let’s face it, not everyone is a model, and most people (including myself!) don’t know what to do in front of a camera, but it is a photographer’s job to make you look good. Once you see your photographer’s vision and process you will feel so much more comfortable – that, in my book, is priceless.
