The photos for my engagement session turned out beautifully! Seriously, it’s so lucky that I was able to find a photographer at the last minute who knew of great spots for our photos. We took the photos in various spots all around downtown Tallahassee, FL. While the pictures might have turned out well, it took some internal reflection to drum up the concept and desire for this Florida city engagement shoot.
A shoot for an engagement session can be overwhelming or inspiring, depending on the couple. With everything I had going on in my life, the photo session wasn’t a priority. I’m not a traditional bride-to-be. I want to love my financé without the fluff and dramatics. Also, I enjoy being simple and having few personal projects that I work on, making the planning for our union to be slightly unappealing. Why? Because I want to have enough time to really dedicate myself to a project, which I recently haven’t had. Then, I decided to shift my thinking.
I wanted a location and style that showcased who both my future husband and I are and where we want to be. Less of the “I” more of the “we”. Tallahassee has beautiful photo spots, it’s where we both met, where Josh went to school and where I’m currently getting my master’s degree. I tried a series of three styles.
