Quad Cities Wedding Photography | Sarah and Steve’s Engagement Session

Sarah and Steve are pretty much the sweetest couple ever. They have a soft and quiet kind of love. During our consultation they were both so soft spoken but I could tell inside they were bursting with excitement for their wedding. Sarah mentioned that they didn’t need engagement pictures because they had another photographer do a session for them when they were first engaged. She was hesitant about having them done again because they weren’t happy with what they received but I insisted on photographing them again before their wedding. I include a complimentary engagement session with each wedding and here’s why. It helps the couple get comfortable with me. Truly, I’m kind of a stranger to them and having this time helps us connect and get to know each other. I also helps them get comfortable in front of camera. Let’s be honest. It’s really uncomfortable and awkward to have your pictures taken and having an engagement session will allow our couples to loosen up, get to know our posing evolution and feel comfortable with a stranger photographing them.

I’m so glad we were successful with talking Sarah into another engagement. The results are flawless and Sarah and Steve are in love with their session. She didn’t think they would turn out well but I knew if we worked our magic, they would be stunning. This day couldn’t have been more perfect. The sun was beautiful, the air was warm and there was just a hint of a breeze. Most of all, though, was how much their love really shown through. This quiet couple from the studio became this beautiful power couple during their engagement session. It’s always such a great experience when you see a couple come out of their shell. I can’t wait for their wedding TOMORROW!

They will be having a winter wedding filled with lots of lights and natural elements. Lavender Crest Winery was a natural choice when it came to choosing their reception venue. Lavender Crest always does such a great job with weddings. The staff is great, the room is always filled with love and the vineyards are to die for. Even though there won’t be any leaves on the vineyards, I’m still going to take Steve and Sarah out there for a few portraits. I can’t wait! Stay tuned for their gorgeous wedding!
