Alec & Leah: Engagement//Liberty Lake Regional Park, Washington

Running around Liberty Lake with these two love birds for their engagement session was the absolute best. Leah & Alec are so fun and we had a blast being goofy, making jokes and laughing together. I am in love with how their session turned out and how much these photos reflect who they are as a couple. Leah & Alec definitely started with saying the classic, "I'm so sorry in advance, we're really awkward." 
Now, let's get real. I think the majority of people probably feel uncomfortable in front of the camera (myself included) but lucky for you, I have a few tricks up my sleeve. My sessions are not "look here and smile!" That's awkward. Most of my "posing" starts off with looking at each other, holding hands, talking to one another and doing activities like walking, running, dancing etc. I direct you in a way that cultivates real moments between you and your fiancé so you guys are having fun and looking natural. Hopefully, if your cheeks hurt it will be from laughing and having fun rather than holding a cheesy smile for an hour. I want to capture your love how it truly is so when you look back at your photos you think, "That is SO us." That means that each shoot is unique (because your relationship is unique!) and catered to you and what you want. This is such an exciting time in your life and by the end of the shoot I want you saying, "Wow, that was really fun."
So even though Alec & Leah thought they'd be awkward, they totally rocked it instead and were total pros at just letting go and having fun. See for yourself & check out some of my favorites from their beautiful engagement session!
