“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)I am never without it (anywhere I go you go,my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling) I fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)I want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true) and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart
(I carry it in my heart)”
Rarely do couples give themselves time to really marinate in the awe of being truly engaged since the tendency is to get swept up in wedding planning right away. But your engagement session is that one moment in time to look each other and say,
So let's have some fun, laugh a lot, maybe have a drink, chat about how awkward we are, and plan the best and most authentic engagement session ever, just for you two!
Let's do this!
Right now should be the most exciting time, short of your actual wedding day...
Maybe you're the tacos and margaritas people, or maybe you're the concert-goers and the night-owls...or maybe you're more of the order in pizza with your favorite tv streaming shows...
*Although I do offer engagement sessions without the commitment of also shooting your wedding, I strongly encourage you to try and schedule your session with your wedding photographer. Not only is it an amazing opportunity to work together before your big day, giving you the chance to become friends and learn more about each other, but your wedding photographer may also offer a discount for your session (like I do) or may even offer packages that come with engagement sessions as part of the whole. So although I would never choose to turn away the chance to be a part of your love story, I would also never want to rob you or your photographer of the golden opportunity to capture your engagement as well.
