I mentioned when writing about Jason and Jackie’s session that it REALLY does make a difference to shoot engagements, or any portraits for that matter, at a location that is “you”! So many couples just pick places because they are cute and they have seen engagements done there before. I would like to throw a challenge out there for all future Inspired Design brides! : Pick a location that means something special to you and your fiance’! It’s so worth it! Even if it’s not the prettiest place in the world….we can make it awesome! Promise.
Speaking of awesome… Rachel contacted me before our session last Friday and asked if we could start on the rooftop of their apartment for pictures! Now that’s awesome! They have engagements at their first home! It worked out wonderfully! Their quaint little apartment rests over top of Elle’s Salon in Downtown Fredericksburg and it couldn’t be cuter! Rachel’s Ikea inspired style made me wish I was decorating a new home! (one day!) Needless to say, I had a blast getting to know this couple and I was so glad that they took a risk and chose to shoot their engagements somewhere different!
Check them out!
Look at those shoes!
Cute isn’t it!
