Yanquin & Chase’s Sweet & Romantic Gilbert, AZ Engagement Session
Sometimes we are asked by couples if it is ok to skip the engagement session. Of course, an engagement session is not a requirement, but we always strongly encourage it! Here’s why: an engagement session gives the bride and groom a chance to get comfy in front of the camera. It provides a non-threatening and fun environment to settle in and get used to each other, and us. That’s the other reason. It gives us the chance to get to know how they interact in front of the camera. An engagement session also gives them the chance to learn how we are at directing and how we typically run a shoot. Doing all of those things for the first time on the wedding day just adds anxiety to an already stressful day!
So, we are pro-engagement session all the way. Especially when they turn out as fun and cute as Yanquin and Chase’s Gilbert, AZ engagement session! We spent the afternoon with these two lovebirds at the Riparian preserve in Gilbert, and we think it was a great location choice for them! It had been awhile since we’d done an engagement session at The Riparian Preserve, and we’re glad we made it back out there! The light through those trees was just perfection.
We love Yanquin and Chase’s story. We’ll tell you more about them when we post their wedding photos soon. But, in a nutshell, these two met on match.com while they were both attending ASU. And Yanquin had recently moved all the way from China to do research for ASU. How crazy is that? She had to move across the Pacific Ocean to find the love of her life!
We hope you love their Gilbert, AZ engagement session at the Riparian Preserve as much as we do! Check out other engagement sessions here!
