When we started this blog, our goal was to share stories, inspire a meaningful marriage, and be a resource to any bride planning her wedding day.
We both remember the time in our life when we each bought our first DLSR camera. I was about to graduate from high schoool and just wanted a really nice DSLR to document all the camp adventures I would be going on. I literally knew nothing how to compose a photo properly, what certain settings meant, or even how to use lightroom. My parents were a bit skeptical, as they rightfully should have been. Five hundred dollars for an eighteen-year-old was a lot of money especially since I just wanted it for my own personal pleasure!
Stephen’s first camera purchase was much nicer than mine. He was a sophomore in college studying Film Production at Biola University during our “long distance days”. As he was studying film and media arts, and intended on using his major. You can imagine it was pretty important he had his own camera instead of constantly having to rent one from the media department. During his Christmas break, he began selling anything and everything around the house that could make him money. He sold his old drum set, old cell phones, books, basically anything lying around that he no longer used, he sold on craigslist or eBay. So you could say thanks to internet, Stephen was able to afford his first DSLR camera, a Canon 60D.
Stephen and I absolutely love engagement sessions! It allows us to spend more time with our amazing couples, we get to see how they interact and ease their nerves about having photos taken. For most of our couples, this is their very first time having professional photos taken together. It’s expected to have nerves and we love getting the chance to walk them through our process, which in turn makes their wedding day experience feel so smooth!
