Engagement photography is an integral part of the wedding planning process. It not only warms you up to your photographer’s way of posing, but it also gives you a chance to really get to know each other before the wedding day. Do you think you have a bad side? Is your hunny self conscious about something? This is the time to work through those issues with your chosen wedding photographer and work through the kinks. It’s also a great time to capture your relationship in everyday clothes.

McKay’s Photography customizes each Engagement Picture Session location to fit each couple and has plenty of unique locations in mind.
