We were so excited when our friend and one of our favorite photographers Cassidy with Thompson Photography asked us to help her style an engagement session over the Summer. When we met Taylor and Lee we could tell that the shoot was going to be filled with dreamy images after an afternoon spent with them on their friends gorgeous farm. As wedding planners who work with couples planning their big day on a daily basis, we are often asked the question if engagement sessions with your photographer are necessary. We hope that after you read the bride’s comments below, you will not think twice and add the session on to your planning! An engagement session is the perfect time to spend some time together as a couple in front of the camera before your wedding day. You are able to feel more relaxed and comfortable with your photographer being around during your wedding.

From the Bride, Taylor, “It was so much fun to work with our photographers before our wedding. We could tell they were excited to do this shoot because it was a little outside the box. We got to be creative and utilize so many talented people like The Planning Company to set the props and mood that Lee and I were hoping for! All the elements came together and we now have pictures that are, just like the car, timeless! I would definitely suggest this to other couples! Having this engagement photo session allowed us to trust our photographers. We felt comfortable with the up-coming wedding pictures knowing we were all on the same page and how they worked!”.

The groom, Lee, had always had an infatuation with cars, this vintage Mercedes in particular. One of the brides customers from her cafe, Taylor Made Cafe knew how much Lee adored it and set up a driver to bring the car to the barn so they could use it for the shoot. Both the bride and groom are drawn to older, timeless, classic pieces so this one of a kind car was the perfect touch to add to their shoot.
