Andrea & Eric’s Outdoor Engagement Session

Here in the Pacific Northwest, specifically Spokane, WA, as a photographer I can always see a photo shoot happening outdoors, no matter what time of year it is. Especially when I have an engaged couple contemplating their session options when the sun is shining and the clouds are out, there is no reason why we shouldn’t do an outdoor engagement session. It would be beautiful!!  This same beauty is what my former brides-to-be experienced in their own outdoor engagement session, and are so pleased with their results that they are willing to share with others.

I think wedding referrals are such a great addition in the photography business! An engaged couple might come to me without a single idea, but when they call a former bride for a referral, they have light bulbs firing off left and right as to where to go, what to wear, and what poses they might really enjoy doing. It is a win-win for everyone!  My former bride gets to relive a great experience, and my current bride-to-be gets to start seeing hers come to life.

I actually only get a handful of brides-to-be that will ask for wedding referrals, so when it happens and they follow through with it, I am ecstatic.  Andrea is exactly that bride-to-be, she actually called the other brides. I was excited when she asked for this because I knew the responses she would receive from past brides would far exceed what she expected. One of the brides she spoke with was Michelle whom told Andrea about the old grange building in Greenacres that I took her and Dan to before their wedding ceremony for a few quick shots. She explained how beautiful the images turned out and immediately sold Andrea on the location for her outdoor engagement session.

On top of shooting at the grange, we headed to the western part of downtown Spokane to work with the fun shapes of the Maple St Bridge, the great architecture of the old Spokane Library on Cedar, and any other nook and cranny we found interesting.  This outdoor engagement session had it all to say the least!
