Top 5 Reasons to Do Engagement Photos…



1… You get to snuggle and kiss the person you love most.



2… You can visit amazing places you have never been before… like Samuel P. Taylor, home to endangered salmon and giant redwood trees.




3…. You get to practice being photographed during intimate moments, which you will soon have to do many many times as people hit their wine glasses with their utensils, signaling for you to kiss, over and over again at your reception.



4… You get to know your photographer, who will be following you around and documenting those intimate moments, on the biggest day of your lives.



5… You get to have lots and lots of cute photos of just the two of you, right before your lives change forever.




It was fun getting to know Jennifer and Ramsey during our photo shoot and I can’t wait for their wedding in August. Thank you to the Green Girls, who recommended me as a photographer.

  1. These are beautiful. You capture people’s hearts. I wish we had engagement photos. I wish I could see you right this minute. We’d hug and then sit down slowly because my effing back is tweaked. Anyway, miss you tons.


  2. Thank you so much, Paige. You made the whole experience so fun and easy. I concur with all of the reasons you listed — especially the part about getting used to being photographed, as I am hoping we’ll feel a little less awkward during our wedding photos!


  3. Beautiful, Paige!!! The love just oozes out of these photographs. They are glowing!
