Getting in front of the camera can be an anxiety-inducing nerve-wracking decision. I know! I try to hire photographers for myself every year just so I can remember how bizarre it feels to be in front of the lens, rather than behind it. If you've recently gotten engaged and are considering engagement photos, here's all the reasons why I think they are helpful and how to make the most of your session.
Las Vegas offers many amazing locations for engagement sessions and family portraits, one stellar spot that I love is the Valley of Fire State Park about an hour outside of the city. With 46,000 acres of awe-inspiring red rocks and canyons, the scenery is simply unworldly and I was overjoyed to travel there for Tyler and Alexa's engagement session.
Although the south Bay Area offers many amazing locations for engagement sessions and family portraits, one stellar spot that I love is Pearson-Arastradero Preserve in Palo Alto. Depending on the time of year, a Pearson-Arastradero Preserve engagement session can offer you fields as far as the eye can see of beautiful swaying dead grasses or, if you are there in the winter as we were, rolling lush hills of green. The golden sunset light at Palo Alto's open preserve offers an abundance of opportunity for beautiful images and I was in heaven exploring for Lizzy and James' South Bay engagement session.
