Some of our couples are on the fence about whether to do an Engagement Session or not. We are always big fans of going for one for several reasons. First off, they are similar to a catering tasting or wedding dress fitting, both of which are preparations to help the Wedding Day run more smoothly. Secondly, they are just plain *fun*. Some couples can have nerves about being in front of the camera, which we totally get. Matt and I purposefully put ourselves in front of someone else's camera on an annual basis so we are constantly reminded what it's like to be in front of that little black box - and it can be scary! It's our job to make it fun and easy, so we do this the best way we know how - with a very laid back approach. When we have the luxury of an hour or so with nothing to do but take photos with two people in a great location, good things happen. It makes the wedding day a much easier task when it comes to photos since we've already built up the repertoire and we feel like old friends versus vendors. I met up with Cass in Matt back in July (HOW is it September 1st already!?) and they needed NO prompting from me to shine in front of the camera. They are naturally warm and affectionate with one another and putting them in an early morning Minneapolis sunrise on the Stone Arch Bridge made this session a breeze. We are looking forward to shooting their wedding next May and know that this is just a small taste of really great things to come. Cass and Matt, you guys are the bees knees! Thanks for sharing your love.
