I’ve always enjoyed looking at engagement photos. It allows you to get a feel of the couple and what makes their love special. Some couples enjoy being outside, some liked to get glammed up, some enjoy various themes such as hobbies, sports, movies, etc. I also love it when couples take engagement photos at a place that holds significance to them and their relationship.

When searching for a wedding photographer, I took into consideration their “style” and who would be able to capture our love in a timeless, romantic, and creative way…With that being said, I’m attempting (keyword being attempting) to be a budget savvy bride and so price was something that was also given consideration. Now, from past experiences I’ve learned that many times you do get what you pay for so I wanted to be careful not to get someone just because they were offering a ridiculously low price.

I have to say, my planner Shade (a conceal affair) is a God send! We searched tirelessly for weeks to find the perfect photographer. Every photographer that we came across that was in our area was either booked, wayyyy to pricey, or just didn’t give us that “That’s it!” feeling. Finally, one day Shade called me at work and said I think I found the perfect photographer! Look him up!” I went to his website and as soon as I looked at his first few photos I was speechless!…I was totally enamored by his work! As I scrolled down I noticed a lot of familiar faces…not because I knew these people personally but because they were celebrities! Patience is truly a virtue!

I know I’ve told him a million times already but Will Sterling is AMAZING! He took a trip out here to Houston (he is based in Atlanta) for our engagement session and it was a wonderful experience! The E- session was seamless…I mean, anybody who can get my fiancé to take pictures for 2 hours is the real MVP! He was able to capture 3 sides of us…the dressed up timeless romantic side, the West African traditional side, and the casual everyday look. He made us feel like celebrities and there are not enough words in the world to thank him! I’m sure every bride says this but my wedding vendor team is the BEST!!! 4 months and counting until I am officially a MRS. and I can not wait!
