Redlands Engagement session at the Smiley LibraryThe Smiley Library is a wonderful backdrop for a Wedding Engagement session. Even during the day, creative strobe lighting can create a romantic scene. Redlands public library has beautiful arches, and walk ways, it also has some garden areas that are excellent for photography. The building is very old with great architecture. I love capturing moments that anticipate something special about to happen, like this kiss in progress.
Engagement Sessions are so magical, it is wonderful see a couple express their love for each other. I am grateful when I am asked to share in these special moments. I love to step back and let couples share how they are together, by finding beautifully Photographic settings with wonderful backgrounds and observing with the camera I can show the couple being natural together journalistically. If my couple would like or needs more direction I am happy to help them. The goal of every session to capture beautiful moments of our couples sharing special time together. Images that will be special for generations to come.
Generally engagement sessions are 1-2 hours long, but can be as long as the couple would like to be in front of the camera. I prefer places that are special to the couple, it possible. That could be their home, the beach, mountains, forest, dessert, Joshua Tree, and or Hawaii (you have to pay my airfare and hotel).
