Engagement shoots are more than just taking a few photos before the wedding...in fact, they can go a LONG way to ensuring the wedding is "picture perfect". How so? A few ways: 1) You get to work very closely with your photographer...ensuring that you like him/her and getting to know one another "pre-wedding" 2) You get "comfy" in front of the camera...I mean, when was the last time you had professional pics taken? The prom?!? 3) You get great photos in "regular clothes"...meaning you're not in a gown and a tux! In any case, Stephanie & Matthew went out with us recently to Jones Beach for this beautiful session. Enjoy!
