Traditional Engagement Photos

Photography, like everything else, goes through trends.

Right now, artistic shots with blurry foregrounds and pretending the camera isn't there are as common as grey walls and anything you'd hear on Kiss FM.

If you're under the age of 35, you probably love that. If you're over the age of 35, you may have an issue.

The older generation likes photos where the subjects are looking at the camera and nothing is in the way, white walls, and the Ozark Mountain Daredevils as opposed to Bieber.

You have to appease the elders who want wallet prints of your shining face, right?

Jon-Reid and Hayli came to me because they wanted something more classic for their engagement portraits (with some trendy stuff thrown in). We went to the Dallas Arboretum on a Sunday morning, dodged the many other photographers, and left with a bucketload of options that will please everyone.
