Wedding Wednesday: Our Engagement Shoot

A few weeks ago, Jeff and I spent the evening with Nichole from Ampersand Studios having some engagement pictures taken. We went to the Idaho Shakespeare Festival grounds, which was beautiful and filled with lots of spaces to traipse around and be one with nature. I was pretty nervous as we got ready to go - I'd never had professional photos taken like this and I wasn't sure what to expect - but Nichole made us feel comfortable from the start and was great at directing us and keeping it fun and easy. We happened to get an overcast day and it got dark a little early, but overall we love the pictures and can't wait to use them at the wedding and share them with family and friends!

Engagement shoots are a great idea for many reasons - they help the bride and groom get comfortable being photographed, they can connect the couple to their wedding photographer so that they're that much more at ease on their big day, and they're a great opportunity to get silly and have fun with your future spouse. I highly recommend a photo shoot to anyone on the fence, and Boise brides, check out Ampersand! Here are a few of our favorite shots...
