2018 Engagements - Our favorite photos!

Updated: Mar 7

The last few years we’ve always done an end of the year recap of all of the couples we’ve worked with for their wedding days! After a few years we can say it's something we look forward to. It feels like a tradition and something we intend on continuing for the future! For us it’s always a little mind blowing looking back over everything and recalling the the fun days, touching moments, and inspiring people. In retrospect, it always feels like a lot but in truth it’s only about half of the story. The rest of our days are filled with engagement sessions and we’ve grown quite fond of them in the past few years! While we love the rush and fast pace that comes with a big wedding, engagements allow you a chance to slow down and take it all in. For the couples we work with, it tends to be more intimate, less stressful (if at all), and considering some of the beautiful places we travel to around Asheville, it’s safe to say they’re pretty fun! These laid back environments allow us to better connect with people and for us, that’s the ultimate! So as this year came to a close, we decided we were going to share our favorite photo from every engagement/proposal session!

So what made these our favorites? As photographers, we both have our tendencies, likes, dislikes, pet peeves, and things that make us stop dead in our tracks and say OMG! It’s never the same for any couple, any location, lighting situation, or otherwise. Each new session lends itself to something fun and unique. Even locations that we’ve shot at a ton can change from shoot to shoot with the weather, seasons, changes in foliage, etc. Sometimes it was the moment right after a proposal when a couple was taking in all the excitement. Sometimes it was the awe-inspiring golden glow of the sun hitting just right. Sometimes it was the beautiful connection and passion between two people, and other times it was a perfect sunset. For each one of the photos we selected as our favorites, they spoke to our souls in a special way and all for different reasons. Along with all the engagements also comes all the feels, so scroll onward my friends, grab a tissue if needed, and enjoy!
