Mariana and Pedro booked their wedding day with me back in April (which I shot on August 11th so biggest congratulations to them!), but then added on an engagement session a couple months later when I was offering mini sessions and I'm so glad they did! We met on a hot Friday evening in downtown SLC for their session at the top of my favorite parking garage (not glamorous at all but those city views are my fave).
Mariana mentioned to me how Pedro doesn't love being in photos (what groom does? definitely not my husband haha) so I was so happy that they ended up booking a session prior to their wedding. It's not the most natural thing to have a camera in your face, and definitely even harder if you don't feel comfortable with the person behind the camera! I'm a huge advocate of booking a pre wedding session like engagements or bridals with your same wedding day photographer so that you can feel each other out and get over those nerves before your wedding day. When these two tied the knot they already knew what to expect, and it definitely showed in their photos (keep an eye out for their wedding day blog post coming soon!)
