We’re so excited to get to show you the first set of images from our workshop we did back in June. After a day in the “classroom” (a comfy living room) we set out in the late afternoon for Jose to demonstrate how he shoots an engagement session. Fun fact: Emily found our adorable couple late one night while grocery shopping at Kroger! We all fell in love with them!

I love how airy and light it is. The engagement shot can almost dictate the feel of the wedding: simple, chic, romantic and elegant. Definitely the way to go.

I think the bride’s dress (for those of you mentioning it) came from http://www.jamescoviello.com/ — can someone confirm?
