They say a picture can say a thousand words. So when the time comes for you to describe how you feel about your significant other, you can show them your engagement photos. Indeed, that just goes to show how important these kinds of photoshoots are. And just like when you’re told to look natural during a shoot, there is no right way or wrong way to love – there is only the natural way. A kind of love where you don’t have to force yourself to do this or that just to please your partner. A kind of love where just being with each other is enough. A kind of love where you can be yourself. A love with no inhibitions. Yes, that is what this couple has, and I couldn’t possibly describe their love any better than these photos.
What did you want to portray in your engagement shoot?
As an engaged couple we wanted our photos to portray to others a couple that is in love. We wanted to show a strong, romantic couple that is unbreakable. There is a bond between myself and my fiancé that is easily seen through these photos. These photos really illustrated our relationship for others to see. These photos portray a natural love, being silly, intimate, and happy and just taking it all in that I will be spending the rest of my life with this man. I can look back on these photos and just remember how amazing it was to move a step forward in our relationship.
Why did you choose the location?
My photographer actually chose the location and it was perfect! We were really happy with the way the pictures turned out, there’s nothing better than beautiful coloured fall leaves in the background of the photos.
What inspired your outfits for the engagement session?
The fall weather definitely inspired my outfits… It was perfect for the scenery.
Do the photos give a hint on what will happen on their wedding day? How so?
The only hint I get from the engagement shoot for our wedding day is that I know my wedding pictures are going to beautiful. I mean look at the ones that were taken by Nick, they’re amazing! I think it’s going to be a lot of fun shooting with Nick on our wedding day!
How did you feel at ease with all the posed shooting?
At first we were kind of nervous but I honestly feel like it depends on the photographer and our photographer (Nick Ghattas) was overall amazing and made us feel comfortable. None of the photos were staged and we kind of just did our thing acting like he wasn’t even there!
