Brandi Linger Photography: Jordan and Iaian's Engagement Session in the Hills of WV

Hi guys!! My name is Brandi Linger and I own Brandi Linger Photography in the little town of Jane Lew, WV. Our population here barely reaches five hundred people, so you really have to try in order to find us on the map! We are mainly a wedding and engagement photography business, however we also focus on seniors and do some studio work. We have been in business a little over a year now, but only about six months full time. The most important thing to me in this business is capturing moments for people that they can't get back. It's like freezing time for them to look back upon, and then passing their pictures down for years and years to come.

A good example of this is Jordan and Iaian's engagement session. When Jordan reached out to me, we personally went over everything she wanted in a photographer to make sure that we were a good fit for one another. We realized how much we had in common with the type of portraits she had in mind to be taken during her wedding day and for her engagement session as well. So, that settled it! We were ready to work together to create her dream pictures! That's exactly what we did, too. We worked side by side to make sure we planned outfits accordingly, talked about posing and lighting, and considered our location options.

Meeting Jordan and Iaian was a dream come true! You could feel the love these two shared the moment we said hello. We shared many laughs during their engagement session, and the anticipation of their upcoming wedding next year is building and building.

Jordan and Iaian's engagement session took place on her home land. We discovered many new places to capture their love story and their wedding will be held in this same location!

The sun was beginning to set just right, giving this deep yellow glow to all of their images. We strove to capture lots of candid shots, instead of the normal "posing" when getting your pictures taken. This has been a goal of mine since starting my business. One of my favorite things is capturing the love between two individuals naturally, non posed, and candid. It allows me to understand them better as a couple for their wedding day, but also gives them images to look back on that show their true story.

Jordan and Iaian will marry in September of 2018. From what the bride has told me, their wedding will be nothing short of perfection. All of the little details, to the bride's dress, and her wonderful family that I have came to know a little better in the years past. I have no doubt that Jordan and Iaian were meant to be together and I cannot wait to be there to capture their most important day of their life thus far.
