Engagement Inspiration: Issue 1
We are Proud to Present our New Weekly Engagement Inspiration Issue
We have transformed our weekly spotlight issue into two different categories. Now, we will publish blogs focused on elopement and engagement inspiration.
If you are recently engaged, you are probably here because you need ideas for your big engagement session, correct? Every week, we gather up amazing portraits from photographers to inspire couples like you.
Thank you to all the amazing photographers who shared their work with us over at our Facebook community. We love your adventurous spirit, and we are truly inspired by the work you do!
Here’s the perfect inspiration for the wild-hearted and adventurous couple.

“Sarah had a beautiful vision for this shoot, and it was amazing to bring her vision to life. We chose this location, so it would reflect exactly what she wanted. In reality, there were thousands of people around us. Therefore, we had to fight over a spot. It was definitely challenging, but it was also one of those sessions where it pushes your creativity and skills. In the end, it makes the session worth it when you can meet the client’s vision!” [Nathaly]
What are the perfect elements in a couple’s shoot?
