Couples Engagement Photoshoot in Monaco

When I am not photographing beautiful surprise proposals like THIS or THIS, I am actually taking photos of people that have already popped the big question! Engagement shoots are great because they are very relaxed and chilled compared to the stress and nervous energy of a surprise proposal. To be honest, I love shooting both, but I will say engagement shoots are way more relaxed. On this shoot with Courteney and Vernon I returned to one of my favorite routes, the rock in Monaco. 

I have to say, one of my favorite things about this shoot was how the couple brought their fashion A game. Courtney looked great in white blue nautical stripes. She looked summer chic, like she had just finished a sunset cocktail party on the beach. Vernon looked dapper as well, I like how his loafers matched the color of her stripes. It was a cute nod that pulled the two looks together but it wasn’t over the top “matchy-matchy” like your parents made you look with your siblings in those old Christmas portraits (we have all been there) (all denim anyone? lol). 

When I am shooting with my couples, I am not trying to create images that make them look different than their everyday lives. I attract a lot of couples that are looking for natural unposed and almost candid shots. This is what I strive for when I am taking photos in Monaco, the French Riviera or even world wide. I am not looking to create a scenario that doesn’t exist in their everyday lives. For example, one million ballons and jumping out of a helicopter with a ball gown on. All this is good, but I would rather capture the natural beauty of a couple discovering something together. Easy going and beautiful, the way life should be!
