Your engagement pictures are special, because they show a more casual, down to earth version of your love than what you get on your wedding day. You're together, in a beautiful location, with some music in the background and an occasional direction from me. I really like to just say you are just on a super romantic date and my camera and I are third wheeling. I take some time to get to know you, and make things comfortable, and I make sure to provide directions and poses that will allow genuine interaction to occur.
