PS Photography offers all different shoot types from weddings, corporate/commercial, high school seniors, glamour and boudoir but one of our very favorite types of shoots are outdoor couples and engagement photos.  If you want to see more of our couples and engagement photos, you can follow us on Pinterest at and be sure to also check out our main site at and LIKE us on Facebook at


So why would you want a couples shoot?  Many people don't think this type of shoot is important, but they realize the importance later down the road. Those who never get a couples or engagement session often regret it.  It's not about getting your photo taken, but rather about capturing your love and emotion for each other.  That's something that you do want documented and something that you will love and cherish forever.  We don't know what tomorrow holds, so capture these moments when you still have them. 


We all have cameras these days, so you probably have tons of snap shots of the two of you together.  These shoots that PS Photography offers are not about a photo of the two of you standing there, but rather about art that captures your emotions for each other.  Your shoot will take place with either Trina or Jonathan, who are both award winning photographers based out of Tacoma, WA.  Both Jonathan and Trina with PS Photography were named the #1 wedding photography, #1 wedding videographer and #1 portrait photographer by the King5 Evening Best of Western WA.  They will be able to create stunning art that you'll be proud to hang on your wall and show off to your friends on social media.

If you're engaged, this shoot type is especially a must have.  An engagement shoot is a fun experience and can give you a break from all of the wedding planning.  It’s an exciting way to have something special for the both of you to keep and remember.

There are also many ways you can use these photos in preparation for your wedding such as:

-use it as a centerpiece for your guests

-use them to create a slideshow to play at the ceremony or reception

-create a guestbook or photo album for guest to view

-use on your wedding website

-décor for the reception

-invitations or Save the Date

A great post about a very important photo shoot. You gave great reasons to get a couples shoot done and your examples from around the area are great.
