A County Fair Engagement

One of the best ways I get to know my couples is by shooting an engagement session before their big day. It's a win-win for both of us - I get to see the personalities and dynamic between the bride and groom, how natural they feel behind the camera (they're always better than they think!) and how much direction they may need on their wedding day. On the other side, they also get to know my shooting style, my personality and doing a "test run" eases their anxiety about what shooting on the big day will be like. 

Another great way to get to know my couples? Their location choice. Christin may have cautiously approached the idea about shooting with Andy at the Prince William County Fair in Manassas, Virginia, but I was all about it! I loved the somewhat unconventional choice, the resulting images... and the funnel cakes.
