Advice to Engaged Couples
To all those newly engaged couples out there, find a photographer that fits your style and will help you feel comfortable in front of the camera. The way that we do that is we include the engagement session in every package.
As a photography team, we want to capture our clients with their most natural mannerisms and most genuine expressions. We find the best way to accomplish this is for us to become acquainted with them ahead of time.
Doing an engagement session helps us learn how to help you feel the most comfortable in front of the camera the day of your wedding. That way, in addition to all the emotions of your special day, you are also not having to get used to us and the camera.
Instead, we are already familiar, and this takes the stress off when the big day arrives.
Bill and Claire had their wedding at Uptown Social in Michigan City. This is the first time we shot a wedding outside at Uptown and it couldn’t have been more perfect! They were also the first couple to “Lock Their Love” on the fence surrounding Uptown Social, as a symbol of unity and steadfast love.
With the distinct red door and beautiful venue, there was no lack of photo opportunities. To finish it all off, Bill and Claire danced the night away, in the center of the recently renovated ballroom, originally a church built in 1867, surrounded by friends and family.
