As an engagement photographer, I encourage all my couples to be intimately involved in planning their engagement portrait session. While most rely solely on me to identify unique locations and to create flattering setups, some have a very clear vision for their engagement photographs…and that was Staci and Christopher. My experience has taught me to simply follow the instincts of those couples and then be prepared to capture lots of really amazing images.
Staci and Christopher were excited about photographing their engagement portrait at Red Wing Park in Virginia Beach and the weather was perfect. From the beautiful Japanese Garden to the peaceful wooded trails, the park turned out to be the perfect backdrop for an engagement portrait.
I always invite my couples to include items with a personal or special meaning during their engagement portrait session. Staci and Christopher took that opportunity to send a message to their family and friends in a special photograph and then used that photograph on their ‘Thank You’ cards.
