An engagement session above all is just fun. A fun date idea anyone?? This is it! Make a day out of it. Pick a few things that you two love to do together or maybe an activity that brings some nostalgia back to your relationship and end it off with an engagement session. You’ll be amazed at how in love you’ll feel afterwards and have some photos to remember it by! This season of engagement doesn’t last forever, remember every ounce of it you can :) For lack of a better word: YOLO
Let’s be real, being in front of a camera can be awkward at times and it can be hard to feel like yourself with a stranger following you around like paparazzi! Doing an engagement session gives us time just to be goofy together and get all those camera shy jitters out of the way. That way when the wedding rolls around, you’re comfortable and I feel more like a friend than a professional you’ve hired. You’ll be amazed at how much of a difference this makes!
One of the main reasons couples do engagement sessions is to use them on their save-the-dates and invitations...they also make great decor for your actual wedding day! And of course, your mom will be all about it!
Mariah photographed my fiancé and I for engagement pictures and we were both extremely aware of the fact we had no clue what to do. She made things go so smoothly, didn’t pressure us for time, and my fiancé even said he enjoyed it! It was so much fun. I cannot wait for her to do our wedding!!
One of my favorite things was the NEXT MORNING she gave me 10 completed sneak peak photos and had all of my edited photos done in a week. This was phenomenal to me!

Mariah is AMAZING! We had such a great time with her on our engagement shoot, and so look forward to have her shoot our wedding day. She is incredibly professional, kind, and SO SO talented. She knows how to make you feel comfortable, and has the most beautiful taste. Cannot recommend Mariah highly enough!

I’m super picky with who I wanted to be our wedding photographer. I didn’t want just anyone, I wanted someone who has editing skills with the particular aesthetic that I like and also someone who could bring out the best in us through pictures. Mariah did just that! Looking through her work I knew she was the one instantly. You can feel love and emotion through her photos. She truly brings out something special in people. We thought we were going to be so awkward at our shoot but it was quite the opposite because we had a BLAST. She’s so talented not only in the quality of her work but also with the fact that she brings out the absolute best in people! If you are looking for a photographer who will focus not only on all the right angles but also the love you share as a couple, Mariah is your girl!!!

Mariah is wonderful! She does awesome work and is awesome to work with. Having our engagement pictures taken was more than just a simple/quick session with a photographer. She took her time, got to know us, and made the session a fun time and a great memory to cherish. We LOVE her!
