Engagement Session with K and K Photography
I couldn’t wait to shoot our engagement session with Jeff owner of K & K Photography www.kandkphotography.com Booking our photographer was one of the hardest decisions in the whole wedding planning process. I found Jeff on Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book www.stylemepretty.com Being a preferred vendor on this site ourselves for the last 4 years, I knew the criteria that you had to meet to be invited to be part of The Little Black Book. K & K Photography is based in Clearwater, Florida which I loved, it meant a different city, different locations that I don’t see everyday and a fresh approach to our engagement session. We decided to meet on the island of Boca Grande to shoot our engagement session. The island has so much Florida history and tons of unique locations. I have been visiting Boca Grande since I was a little girl, so I knew we would have a great time with the beach, banyon tree streets and beautiful sunsets.
When booking your photographer besides his/her talent you want to make sure your personalities click. As a former model I can’t tell you how much this impacts your photos. We didn’t meet Jeff until our engagement shoot, I know this could be very scary but I didn’t have any concerns. I spent a lot of time speaking to his studio manager/wife Ana and felt really comfortable booking. When we met Jeff on our engagement shoot day it was like meeting an old friend. Jeff is so laid back, ultra cool and no pressure. You want your real personalities to come out, be relaxed and just have fun. If you are not comfortable you will never get that to show through. I have to admit celebrating with a little crisp pinot grigio santa margherita before your shoot for sure helps 🙂
Post shoot Jeff took time to talk about how we envisioned our wedding day flowing from the first look, family photos, time line etc. The stress is out of our big day knowing that months in advance we are all on the same page. I would highly recommend K & K Photography for any life event you want to capture from your wedding, pregnancy shoot to family portraits. Don’t let the location of a potential photographer if she/he is not in your backyard scare you, inquire on travel fees etc, you might be very surprised with how reasonable it is.
