We had an awesome time with our engagement session. Our photographer, Bryan Winston of 1,000 Words Photography, was absolutely PHENOMENAL! We took photos in Downtown Washington, DC at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, which is known for its beautiful waterfalls. Our one hour engagement session was included with our wedding package, and it was a great way to not only get to know Bryan and his method of photography, but also to get comfortable taking pictures with Mr. Angelfish.
If you get a chance, and it works in your package or budget, I would HIGHLY recommend doing an engagement session. He even gave us some tips for the wedding day—for example, when we get to the front of the ceremony, Mr. A and I should remember to step back from each other so we are equally apart from the officiant. That way, we can get an awesome photo of us with the officiant directly between us. It seemed like a simple thing, but I have seen so many wedding shots where the officiant is blocked or the couple is off center, and this little tip would have fixed it. Did your photographer (or another helpful bride) give you any tips to make your photos perfect?
OK, enough talking…I know you really just want to see the photos! Enjoy!
