Choosing your engagement session location

Mobile AL engagement photos by Toni Goodie Photography

So you’ve hired your wedding photographer, congratulations! You can cross one of the most important things off of your wedding planning to-do list! Now for the fun stuff, like your engagement session!!! I include a complementary engagement session with The TGP Wedding Experience because it is a vital part of the process. During your engagement session you’ll get to experience how I shoot, pose and handle lighting. Your engagement session will make a HUGE impact on how your wedding day flows. I’ll arrive on the morning of the wedding already knowing how the two of you interact together, what your best poses are and how to photograph your love in a genuine way.

Most people have never been professionally photographed before their engagement session and can get a little nervous- and that is completely normal! I’m happy to tell you there is no need to worry. I’ll help you prepare before your session so you can ENJOY IT! This is a special season of your life together and deserves to be celebrated, not stressed about.

As you start to plan for your engagement pictures, one decision to be made is choosing your engagement session location. I love it when my couples choose a location that is special to them in some way but I also recognize that as a wedding photographer, I am probably much more knowledgeable in this department. So, I’ve compiled a list of locations along the Alabama Gulf Coast that make a great backdrop for engagement shoots! I’ve broken the list up into Baldwin & Mobile counties but don’t let these limit your choice! As long as there’s great light, I can make any location work!
