One of the most rewarding aspects of being a top rated wedding photographer, is traveling to photograph engagement sessions and weddings in different States. This couple hired me to photograph their engagement at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden and the Magnolia Dallas Downtown hotel where they went on their first date.
They had been searching for the best wedding photographer they could find to photograph their engagement session in Dallas, Texas then wedding in Lake Tahoe California. They did their research and due diligence and hired me for both. I spend three days in Dallas and we did their engagement shoot over two days. The first engagement photo session at the The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden where we spent most of the day. They wanted their engagement photos to be taken somewhere they routinely enjoy visiting and where they went on their first dates and had engagement photo ideas before I arrived in Texas.
Lynn and Garrett had already come up with ideas for engagement photos and had selected engagement photo outfits to wear for each part of their engagement photography. We began by beginning our engagement photos at a fountain in the Dallas Arboretum. We walked through the various displays and botanical gardens shooting a variety of engagement photos with different poses. We incorporated all of Lynns ideas for engagement photos at various landmarks in the arboretum. We then stopped for an hour to rest and while Lynn and Garrett changed engagement photos outfits for the remainder of their engagement shoot. We took a variety of engagement photos including funny engagement photos using a variety of poses and styling.
The next day we met up with Lynn and Garrett at the Magnolia Dallas Downtown where they went on their first date. We did some photography at the bar and most notably the library where we were able to get creative with our engagement photo shoot using a piano. We also made sure to add the engagement ring to the photo shoot since it was a gorgeous ring.
After finishing at the Magnolia Dallas downtown hotel we walk through the streets of Downtown Dallas creating some of the engagement pictures ever. Lynn had planned everything for a perfect engagement shoot including engagement photo shoot outfits and engagement shoot hairstyles for her and Garrett. She left no stone unturned planning their engagement photography session.
One question I get asked constantly is how much an engagement sessions costs? and how much doest it cost to fly me to a particular destination for a photo shoot. It isn't cheap and the couples that pay to fly me out for their engagement and wedding photography really appreciate my unique wedding photography style. They also usually come referred to me, although I show up in Google Search Results all of the USA. The cost of this particular engagement shoot and following wedding were just shy of $9,000 without flights and accommodations for the engagement and wedding photography.
