2008 Best of Chelsea Elizabeth Engagement Photos

 2008 Best of Chelsea Elizabeth Engagement Photos. Before the wedding is the engagement session.  I love these sessions!  After looking back on 2008 and reflecting on the weddings that did have engagement sessions and those that I didn’t, I do have to say that I think they make such a huge difference and have such value.  Engagement sessions are a great way to capture who you are as a couple everyday.  You get to wear street clothes and pick a location that really fits who you two are together.  It’s just the three of us and no one is waiting for you… we have all the time in the world to play around. It’s these fun relaxed shots that your grandchildren will love to see 40 years from now.  I can just see them saying “Grandma & Grandpa.. you were so hip!” or whatever the cool word of the generation is ;)  There are just some poses you can’t do in your fancy clothes.  We can jump, sit, and run.. roll in the sand or jump in the waves!  I love getting the chance to bond with couples before the wedding. We get to know each other and I feel like a certain wall is taken down before the wedding that really allows me to get those close intimate shots on the wedding day.  You already know the drill so couple shots on the day of are a breeze and just a good time.
