A destination engagement session is always a great idea, especially this Charleston engagement session I photographed recently for Megan and Kevin. I was over the moon when Megan emailed and asked if we could do their session somewhere different than their wedding, and that’s pretty much always going to be a fully body yes from me!
Thinking about a destination engagement session? Here’s a couple reasons why I think they are an incredible idea!
- Create a new memory together: Travel to an old favorite or explore a new place together. Either way, it’s going to create new memories together to serve as a touch point of helping to remember how it felt in this season to be engaged!
- Engage with wonder: Exploring together helps tap into the part of your brain that engages in wonder–which reduces stress, increases productivity, and helps you feel more connected with each other.
- Get out of your every day routine: A little pattern interrupt is good for the soul. Get out, expand, and be present with each other.
So many of the couple I work with love to travel and experience new things together, and incorporating that into your engagement session is such a beautiful way to honor who you are as a couple, while creating some gorgeous images in inspiring locations. As a photographer and artist, it’s where my soul really comes alive–tuning in to the magic of a new place and gorgeous light and the way the two of you interact and light up and play together as you explore. There’s truly nothing like it!
Here’s a few favorites from this sunrise magic in Charleston:
