Love on the Farm | Millbury Massachusetts Engagement Photographer

I'm not quite sure how I got so behind on blogging! This engagement session is from last JUNE!!! And it's just the beginning of about 50% of my sessions from last year that never quite made it to my blog. It's not that I didn't love all of these photo sessions, but things get super crazy from June until December around here. I guess that's a good thing, right? Well, these two are pretty much awesome! They're already married at this point, but that doesn't make their engagement session any less amazing (their wedding was pretty good, too, which you will see once I get to the September 2014 photo archives).  Enough babbling...

Emily + Brian brought wine to their engagement session which took place on a perfect late spring afternoon in Massachusetts (I would practically kill for that weather right about now, rather than the 5 ft. of snow on my front lawn!). Good weather + bottle of wine + gorgeous scenery at Stowe Farm...that's probably all I need to say!

Millbury Engagement and Wedding Photographer | Sneak Peek!

Lindsey and Adam's wedding is quickly approaching (July will be here before we know it!), and it was so nice to meet up with them last week for their engagement session. They booked me for their wedding last fall, but they wanted to wait for the weather to get better in Massachusetts before taking their photos. This is just a sneak peek of this fun and young couple's engagement photos...more to come!

Prepping Your Groom For Your Engagement Session | Millbury Massachusetts Wedding Photographer

With the official start of wedding season upon us, I am loving getting to know all of my couples better! One of the best ways that we learn more about each other is through their engagement session, but more often than not I hear from my bride the her groom is just not that excited about having his photos taken. Who can blame him though? He probably thinks we are going to plop him down on a stool with my camera staring right at him for some uncomfortable "say cheese" photos. Um, not quite! First things first: This is going to be fun! Really, it is! For the most part, the two of you will be hugging and walking and laughing, just like you do with each other every day. The only difference is that I'll be doing a little spying with my camera and capturing little snippets of how much fun you have when the two of you are together. Honestly, there's not too much more to it than that on your end (on my end, I'm making sure lighting is good, angles are the best they can be, and the surroundings are perfect, etc. etc.). I may tell you to glance a certain way, look at me, or smile every now and then, but other than that, I just want you to focus on having fun and relaxing.

Get him involved!: Some grooms are really into the whole photo process, and I love it when they are; however, many grooms just roll their eyes and go along with the ride to keep you, their bride-to-be, happy! Either way, they're still being great, right? So, there's really no need to worry. But, if your groom is still a bit reluctant, the best thing to do is get him involved. What are his interests? Does he like sports? Music? Comic books? Video games? What are his favorite colors? Where does he like to hang out? Whatever it is, let's try to incorporate it into your engagement session photos. The more involved he is with making decisions about what we do and what we photographing, the more comfortable he'll be and the better your photographs will look. Let's face it, if he's paying attention to playing the guitar or playing catch with you with a football, the less concerned he'll be with me holding the camera.

Show him what we'll be doing: If he's still dragging his feet about your engagement photo session, show him some of my past engagement sessions! Maybe seeing how the couples are just having fun and relaxing will put his mind at ease. At the very least, he'll see the great couples photos and really want to have the same for the two of you!
