When an engagement shoot happens within a week of a wedding it becomes more of a wedding warm-up, than an engagement shoot, but it is still always a good time! I met up with Marissa and Michael for the first time tonight, and their wedding is going to be this Saturday out at Jones Landing on Peaks Island. Just five days from now!
I’m such a firm believer in the value of an engagement shoot that I’m happy to do them up to a day before a wedding. As a wedding photographer, I think that having my couples get to know me a bit, and for me to get them in front of the camera before the ‘big day’, is key to relaxed, natural wedding day photos. Marissa and Michael however didn’t need much direction, they are comfortable in front of the camera, and it was quickly apparent that their wedding day is going to be a wonderful, fun-filled and relaxed celebration!
