This couple was all cuddles and smiles, which makes our job easy!! An engagement session actually creates cuddles and smiles, as your photographer will put you into poses that are oh-so-romantic. An engagement sitting only takes about 45 minutes and is a great way for you to get to know your wedding photographer and see samples of his/her work before your “big day.” Engagement shoots are done anywhere from a month to a year prior to your wedding and the photos are often times used for invitations, thank you cards, and to display at your wedding reception.
The most common background color request for photographs is green. But I love wintertime photographs. The brown grasses and the white snow bring so much contrast to this couple’s engagement photos. Additionally, the bright and vivid colors in the clothing definitely add “pop” to each image. If you can bear the colder weather, the winter photo-shoot is the way to go!
After a few cold nights in Taos, we were worried that our “autumn leaves” photo shoot would be a bust! We found some brilliant colors in the gardens of the Henningsen Fine Art Gallery. The pond reflected the yellows beautifully, the leftover berries brought color and texture to the bare trees, and the leaves on the ground were so photogenic as a background!
The fall foliage at this time of year is brilliant! I photographed this engagement sitting down in the trees by the Tamaya Resort in Bernalillo, NM. The orange and gold leaves on the trees gave our photos a beautiful autumn feel.
An engagement sitting is an opportunity for the future bride and groom to meet their photographer and for us all to get to know one another before the wedding day. An engagement shoot can be done at the Taos location of your choice. We usually encourage our clients to bring a change of clothing so we can get some more casual photographs, and some more dressy pictures as well. This couple will tie-the-knot at a winter wedding in Red River, NM.
