I absolutely love engagement sessions – in fact, they’re probably the type of session that brings me the most joy. Why? Because they’re raw. They offer couples an opportunity to truly be themselves, away from the pressure/overwhelm that something like a wedding can present (now don’t get me wrong, I’m obsessed with weddings…but let’s not pretend like they’re the most peaceful of productions).
