An engagement shoot is an excellent way to establish a rapport with one's wedding photographer before the actual wedding.
Bryan Blanken was in NYC recently and had the pleasure of photographing Lauren and Jared during an engagement shoot. He had a great time with this fun-loving couple, who he says do not take themselves too seriously. "It's always fun to go somewhere new for engagement sessions. Lauren and Jared picked this great alley, which worked out really well." The bright colors and graffiti walls made for a great canvas, allowing the couple to be playful in these non-traditional shots.
