On Location \\ Where To Take Your Engagement Photos

Remember your first date? What about your favorite restaurant?

 

Project_engagementblog61620151014_0008

When couples ask us where we should shoot their engagement session, we ask questions. We won’t tell you where you should go because we believe your location should say something about the two of you. And who knows the two of you better than, well, the two of you?

We want your images to capture your love, your quirk, your passion, your “you.”

Project_engagementblog61620151014_0007Project_engagementblog61620130427_0003

Though we won’t pick for you, we also won’t leave you hanging if you can’t seem to narrow it down to a specific place. With that in mind, here are some things to consider:

  • Where did you meet?
  • Where was your first date?
  • Where did you have your first kiss?
  • Where did you say “I love you” for the first time?
  • Where did you get engaged?
  • What is your favorite hang-out?
  • Do you share a passion?

Did something special happen at a special place like a(n):

  • Amusement park
  • Coffee shop
  • Bar/restaurant
  • Library/book store
  • Farmer’s market
  • Museum
  • Park

If you’re still stumped, think of some words that describe you:

  • Relaxed
  • Edgy
  • Outdoorsy
  • Eccentric
  • Reserved
  • Social
  • Bubbly
  • Modern
  • Classic
  • Rustic

We are always happy to make suggestions after you have considered these ideas. No matter the location though, we are excited to capture your relationship through narrative photography. This season of engagement is a time of “no longer” and “not yet.” It’s a moment in your relationship, it seems, where you can dream, know, and plan a life with each other. Capturing this time is exciting, personal, and deeply meaningful; similarly, picking a place to remember these days is something beautiful and special in and of itself.

A Mother’s Day Reflection

Mother's Day Post DERKSWORKS_001

A year later and it still surprises me to reflect on the fact that I am mom. I am simultaneously humbled and overwhelmed with the deepest joy each and every day of this journey.

Mother's Day Post DERKSWORKS_002 Mother's Day Post DERKSWORKS_003

Words escape me when I try to explain the emotions of holding our child for the first time or seeing his smile when I walk into his room, snuggling him to sleep, adventuring together through the park or grocery store. He gives me so much.

A friend once told me upon finding out that I was pregnant, that I will now forever wear my heart outside of my body. It is so true. My heart now crawls around the yard, snuggles in the morning with bear and blankie, hangs with the sitter, plays at the park, surrounding George each hour of the day.

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

I used to marvel at moms who can jump out of bed when their child needs them, instantly calm a crying baby or patiently teach their children the simplest of task again and again, wondering, “how do they do it”. I now understand that it isn’t because when you become a mom you are instantly a more patient person, it isn’t because you magically love mornings or changing diapers either, it is because you love your child so incredibly much. A mother’s love is so powerful. It’s my love for George that fuels my strength each day or helps me laugh when puked on or simply just play on the floor for hours instead of working out or getting things done. Becoming a mother has given me a renewed opportunity to attempt to understand and experience a fraction of the love God has for us as His children. Motherhood is a humbling honor and an overwhelming realization of how intense and beautiful God’s love and provision is for us.

Processed with VSCOcam with f1 presetThrough it all, Benjamin has been the perfect partner. He gives me such strength and support. He is always available for George and watching the father/ son relationship of joy, admiration and love that George has with his daddy is an incredible blessing to me!

I pray God will continue to guide me as a mother, that he would bless my feeble attempts and that George would know how much he is loved.
