Ok, we are starting our September booking special tomorrow! We did this last year and it was a big hit.

Remember, this promotion is only good through September 30th. Call us or email us to make an appointment. firstname.lastname@example.org
American Village was the setting for this beautiful summer wedding! Everything was gorgeous! The flowers and food were fantastic. Loved working with Lindsay and Jeff. They made it easy!
Here are some fun and informative tips on taking that great engagement ring selfie!
#1 It’s all about lighting
You’re going to be bathed in a glow of engagement happiness – but for the perfect engagement ring selfie, you need to make sure you’re working with a well-lit space. If natural sunlight isn’t available, switch on the flash; save the dim vintage-style effect for something less sparkly!
#2 Nail it
Arguably your nails aren’t really going to be a top priority when you’ve just said been proposed to. But to guarantee picture-perfect hands, add a slick of moisturizer and, if you have nail clippers handy, give your nails a quick trim to add an extra sheen of perfection to your photo. Good nails = all eyes on the engagement ring; chipped, overgrown nails = @#$%&, dig out an emery board
#3 Decide on the backdrop
What will make up the background of your picture? The place where your partner proposed? Your favorite patterned jeans? The brick wall at the end of the garden? Embrace your inner photographer and consider the whole composition of the picture, starting from your hand in the middle and working outwards.
#4 Strike a pose!
Instead of the obligatory claw-hand ‘pose’ that we all seem to enlist when working a nail art selfie (you know what we’re talking about…), play around with angles and actions to see which positions are most flattering for your hands – and don’t forget props! We’re talking a cute mug, the latest issue of Wedding, your pet… Or maybe even your fiancé!
#5 Ready, set, share!
So you’ve taken the photo, Instagram’d it to your heart’s content and are now ready to share it online with your friends and family. But what will you write to match the image? Give it some thought; FYI, an ironic ‘He liked it so he put a ring on it’ is always a winner (as is this Fiancé t-shirt. We love you, Queen B). Hit ‘share’ and wait for the love to pour in.
GAME DAY! Good luck to both teams. Photos are from Mallory and Trey’s as well as Kathryn and Bryant’s engagement sessions. Had a lot of fun shooting on both campuses! We were really lucky to have Bryant Denny Stadium all to ourselves. Love being able to personalize each engagement session to fit the couple.
Perfect day at Rancho de las Aguilas! Erin and Carson were great to work with. Everything was fantastic! Flowers by HotHouse Design were gorgeous. It was a pleasure to work with their family as well as the whole wedding party!
