I recently got engaged (more on that soon) and while we don’t plan on getting married until Spring 2023, I am starting to slowly check some things off the list. First up, is booking and venue and scheduling engagement photos. I’ve been doing a ton of research on the best local engagement and wedding photographers and figured I’d share some of the best I found!
