Some great advice from another pro in the industry...-Amelia Lyon

This week the J'adore ladies were all featured on a blog. Christina, a wonderful wedding consultant from Simply Modern Weddings, did us the honors by showing off some of our work from engagement sessions. Christina suggests that now is a great time to book engagement sessions with your wedding photographers since this generally is our down time before wedding season hits,  its also a great way to warm up to the camera and photographer before the big day arrives. She knows what she's talking about! 

Christina writes, "Tis the season for engagement sessions! If there is one thing I recommend, it’s to schedule an engagement session with your wedding photographer. Not only is it a great time for you and your fiance to get to know your photographer, but also a chance for you both to let loose and get comfortable in front of the camera...." She also goes on to suggest some other good reasons for booking an engagement session with your wedding photographer and what to do with your engagement photos.

Here's a sneak peek image from an engagement session I shot this last weekend in China Town. I had an awesome time photographing this couple, all the while getting to know them personally, which will in turn help us both feel more comfortable with each other on the wedding day.  I will also be designing a custom sign in album with their favorite engagement images. Thanks to Gretta and Rob for a great session!
