When selecting a location for your engagement session there are a few things that I tell my couples to keep in mind. Try and pick a location that means something to you, or someplace you have a connection to. Think about where you met, where your first date was, what you did, where you got engaged; or even what your favorite activity is to do together. Things like activities are fun to photograph. I had a couple this summer that loved to ride their dirt bikes together so we incorporated that into their session! Another couple whose wedding I had the pleasure of photographing this summer, we did their engagement session up at Grouse Mountain among all the snow and fog. It was very cold but do worth it!
