I love engagement sessions for so many reasons. First, it’s like our first date, me and the couple. LOL. This is our chance to get to know one another. They get to decide if they like me or not. (I always hope that they do!), and I get a chance to see them as a couple, and learn what they like and what they don’t like. And to be honest, a lot of times it’s their first time getting professional photos as a couple before their wedding. For me as their wedding photographer it’s my time to document them in a more laid back environment because weddings go fast and there is always so much going on during the day that this is their time alone documenting their connection.
Tell us how you met and all about the proposal:
We meet at an online dating site for Black People. We had been talking about marriage for months and as we were leaving for a fall vacation at Myrtle Beach, Ron got down on one knee and asked that I spend the rest of my life as his wife. It was so sweet!
Describe your engagement session, and how was it working with Celeste:
Working with Celeste was great! She so friendly and professional. It felt like we had always know her. Celeste’s personality helped us to relax and enjoy the photo session. She has a great eye!
What did you do on your first date:
For our first date, we went to dinner at Texas Roadhouse.
What’s your favorite thing to do as a couple: What are you looking forward to most on the wedding day:
As a couple, we love to travel and going to the theater/shows. We are most looking forward to sharing our special day with family and friends on our wedding day.
