Stephanie and Drew met us at Jeffrey Mansion for their mini engagement session. Mini engagement sessions are super fun...and a great idea if your guy doesn't like getting his photos taken. Because let's be real, guys aren't always the best spending an hour and a half taking photos. So a mini session can be a great photographer-client bonding experience.
ENGAGEMENT TIP: Whether you choose Brett Loves Elle Photography or not, I always recommend that you get photos taken before your wedding (with the photographer you choose). This is a great way for you both to see how they shoot and for your photographer to see how you both interact. That way when they show up for your wedding day you can both rest easy because you know each other.
We had scheduled two engagement sessions on this brisk January day. Both our couples had been wanting snow but because we live in OHIO you really never know what you are going to get. We had tons of snow during the week and by Friday it was all gone! But honestly, I am in love with the colors of the day. This wall with their pops of color looked fantastic! I cannot get over how awesome it is.
ENGAGEMENT TIP: When the weather is a bit dark or dreary (common in the winter months) adding pops of color can always add to the photos. Stephanie had a great maroon color and Drew had purple and they looked great with the grey, tan, and green backdrop.
Jeffrey Mansion was a great choice! There were so many fun places to shoot and we didn't even go to them all! There were:
1. Stone walls
2. Stone stairway
3. Stone Paths
4. Open fields
5. Wooded Paths
6. Trees/Wooded Areas
ENGAGEMENT TIP: I cannot stress enough...the location of your shoot is just as important as outfits or anything else really. Especially if your session is shorter...picking a location that has tons of options can maximize your photos. Less travel - more diversity is always a best case scenario for a mini session.
So all in all...even in 30 min at one location. The diversity in these photos is fantastic. Good call on the location Elle! You can see the rest of Stephanie + Drew's collection here -----> STEPHANIE + DREW ENGAGEMENT MINI
