Amanda and Aaron are by far one of the most creative couples I’ve had the chance to work with and their engagement shoot ideas were SO AMAZING.  They had this idea of a throwback day full stacked with milkshakes, a picnic and lots and lots of love!  Then we finished in the city for a few sunset shots.  Let’s go to Lexington!

Engagement Photo Books are a cool way to show off your engagement shoot to your guests upon arrival to the wedding.  We design them with a variety of images and open space for notes.  It’s definitely a cool upgrade to the traditional guest book.  Check out Katie and Chad’s engagement book design!
