Engagement photos are a totally different animal from weddings. Where weddings are fast paced and crowded with people, engagement sessions are all about the three of us – you, your fiance, and me. Where weddings have set locations and schedules, requiring super efficient photo wrangling and anticipating needs, engagement sessions can meander down unexplored alleyways and play in spaces unsuitable for large fancy groups. And so, when Lindsey, Dan and I were all chatting about where to photograph their engagement photos, Lindsey wrote me this:
We’d prefer to go to Washburn Fair Oaks Park, which is the park that faces the MIA. Our first place together was about a block from there. I like that idea because it’s got history for us and pretty colorful benches… but there are no leaves on the trees, and there is typically garbage on the ground. Our hearts are pretty set on it though. What do you think?
I said “if your heart is set on it, that is where we should go!”
And we did.
