You’re Engaged: Now What?

Bridget is a Boulder, Colorado based slow-living enthusiast, potter, and photographer (travel is optional as well). She strives to capture all moments of your event – especially those small, meaningful details and moments! Here’s Bridget’s breakdown of what to do now you’re engaged.
“Congratulations on your engagement! My approach to photography is natural and intimate. I suggest natural poses for couples on our shoot. If couples want more or less guidance, I’m happy to support that. My favorite backdrop is the mountains during golden hour where we can have fun adventuring around the hills while I suggest poses with the beautiful golden light peeking through my camera.

Booking vendors for your engagement party, bridal shower, wedding, and after-party can be overwhelming at first, so here’s the essentials to check out first.
Having these vendors booked as soon as possible not only ensures your chosen date is available, but can help you form a working relationship with your wedding team. On your special day, all of these elements will come together like magic and create your happily ever after.

Some of the best, most genuine photos are the candid ones. Your photographer will love having the chance to capture the bride getting ready, the groom preparing, and the family celebrating! Dancing pictures, first looks, and pictures with your pets will become some of your most cherished memories.
Now that you have some wedding preparation complete, it’s time to enjoy!
