Don't Judge

The pictures in this little post are to encourage you not to judge the locations that your photographer takes you for your engagement session. Just because they don't take you to the most beautiful mountain top or the most gorgeous lake, your pictures will still be beautiful {and unique}.
For example, when your photographer tells you to take a perch on the nearest newspaper stand or hang out in front of a blue graffitied wall...don't judge. The evidence of the fantastic-ness of such a setting is above and below.
A rusty fence with road signs, yes please! It end result will probably be one of your favorites.
And that old building, off an alley, with the paint chipping off of it....just do it. Hop into that doorway like you own it.

So, the take away from this post? Trust your photographer. Just go wherever they tell you to go. An old storefront, under a bridge, in a staircase...all are fair game and all result in beautiful pictures.

What if your photographer takes you to a crappy place and then takes crappy pictures? I kind of experienced a little bit of that I'm sad to say :(

Very unique pictures. You just have to be super confident that your photographer can rock the setting, because if he/she isn't AWESOME (like if you hired a friend of a friend, or a new photographer for the cost benefits) a wire fence with road signs is just a wire fence with road signs. Those pictures are gorgeous though!
