Hi everyone! As you can see, it’s been a few days since i’ve blogged. For those of you who care, I apologize for depriving you! But it also means I’m super busy working on weddings…so that’s a plus!

I was just browsing through my ‘Exquisite Weddings by San Diego Magazine’ magazine, and I had to share this article.

I LOVE the top photos. I’m pretty much obsessed with that dress and the whole look and feel of this. Oh my.

If you can’t read the fine print, here is what the article says:

“Engagement Photography has evolved from static, overly-posed portraits to dynamic location shoots with clever elements that reflect a couple’s personality. Cindy Lowe from Orange Turtle Photography explains, “We love capturing the emotions of their interactions. Bringing a prop helps create the setting for a lifestyle engagement session — like with the couple we shot who loves Scrabble. They have been together since age 16, and Scrabble has been a significant part of the relationship. In the picture, they are holding tiles spelling a word that describes the other person. It was quite a sweet moment when they revealed them to each other.” — Ann Wycoff

I continue to be amazed at how creative couples get with their engagement photos. I especially love viewing photos of a couple I know well when it totally reflects their personalities. And your guests will love it too! Although, no matter how creative you are as a person, the outcome of your photos greatly depends on your photographer. So make sure you choose a good one!

When I first got engaged I could not wait to take engagement photos. We took them at “our beach” in Coronado, CA.

Let’s see some of your engagement photos! I may post some on here 🙂 send them to weddings@brittneyhogan.com
