Let me show you how to bring some adventure into the engagement session. Let's not do the boring stiff poses and really bring out your fun loving and awesome side.
In my experience, an engagement session should be fun, exciting, and adventurous. It's an opportunity to get creative and develop a relationship with your photographer before the big day! Your engagement photos will tell the story of how you met and will look beautiful in your home long after your wedding day.
When most people imagine photo shoots, they imagine a person standing in one place and taking a "few" photos. This is difficult to get excited about and probably not the vision you have for your engagement shoot. If you're someone who is creative, adventurous, and willing to try something new — then we're likely a great match!
"working with debbie is fun and so easy. she gave us so much to do and we love that she will be there capturing our special day"
Taking on the role as Official Photographer for a couple's engagement session has been by far my best job, bringing in-the-moment emotions to life. My couples walk with me through their day, allowing me to capture their love in candid moments on their engagement, not the posed and planned for photos. I am so excited to have the chance to create still moments for you to cherish forever.
A photo shoot is a delicate matter. A successful shoot requires preparation, coordination and expert direction. Some of the factors that might affect the outcome of your photo shoot include the weather and lighting conditions, among others. But generally, an engaging photographer will be able to enhance the quality of their pictures by eliminating external factors. Your engagement photos will make a lasting impression on everyone who sees them, so it's important that they deliver in several ways – as mementos of your engagement as well as foundations for your cherished wedding album.
"Over the moon with these pictures"
I may be biased, but I absolutely love Debbie. I have been a part of her photography journey from the start. And I have to say that her evolution for her understanding of photography is amazing. My boyfriend and I wanted a nice beach, golden hour couples' session and of course I snagged Debbie on a weekday. We went to a state park beach and just had a lot of fun. She is so down to earth, so calming but funny, and very easy to talk with. She made my boyfriend feel so relaxed during the entire time. 100% recommend.
I cannot believe that we took these pictures. I mean, I have never seen myself as photogenic at all. And when Debbie asked about any concerns, I laid it all out of everything I didn't like about myself. Her way of talking to me about self-love really stuck with me. The white dress I chose showed all of my goodness and you know what, she made me feel so good, and free that I did not even once worry about anything. She is truly amazing, in all aspects.
I think Debbie was the perfect hype woman for our elopement. She was there with the smiles, sweet tears, hugs, guidance, and calmness that we needed for the day. Debbie made our elopement so special. Out of all the photographers we spoke with, she just had a realness about her that made me choose her. No sweet talk, pure facts and I loved that she took the time out of her day to text with me for any questions that came up. A true sweetheart!
Nothing like having a wedding with close friends and family to celebrate such a special moment. For us, we looked high and low and found Debbie through a referral from another photographer. I am so glad she was available. She was so sweet and funny on our call. Really made us feel so special and had many great suggestions and ideas that we didn't think about. What we got back was nothing short of perfectly captured memories.
