A Point Clear Alabama Engagement
Katie and Dylan are getting married two weeks from tomorrow! We attempted scheduling their engagement session twice before it actually worked out. Their original session date was scheduled for the spring, so of course we had to postpone due to the pandemic. The second session date was scheduled for the week after Hurricane Sally hit the Gulf Coast. Once again we had to postpone. It was looking like we were never going to get this session in, but it turns out the third time was a charm! I met up with Katie and Dylan last Sunday at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear Alabama. After months of knowing these two only by their voices, it was so nice to finally meet them in person!
I love getting to know my couples ahead of their big day, but the engagement session is also a great opportunity for my couples to get comfortable with being photographed. Let’s be honest, most of us don’t get photographed on a regular basis. On top of that, being in front of the camera can be a bit nerve-wrecking. The engagement session is the warm up for wedding day and, best of all, I’ve found that doing an engagement session makes things flow smoother on wedding day because my couples know exactly what to expect. It also makes us all feel like we’re old friends when wedding day rolls around.
I almost always photograph engagement sessions two hours before sunset because I love that Golden Hour glow. However, Katie and Dylan were in town for only two days. On one of those days I had a wedding. In the end, we decided that Sunday morning was our only option to squeeze this shoot in ahead of the big day and it worked out perfectly!
