What does real engagement actually look like between two people? Is it something that is made up, is it something that only lasts for a couple of years and then dies out because the excitement is gone? How do we engage with each other in a way that shows the other that we value them? This is something I am striving for in my marriage and working on.
During my sessions I am the guide, I am not the hero that takes cool photos or bought the fancy gear to make everything look awesome. My couples, through being intentional with each other, are the hero of their own story. It is one thing to take cool photos of your subject, but it is another to have them walk away feeling valued uniquely and feel more connected in their relationship. If I never take a cool photo again ( Let’s be honest, that won’t happen.) and all I focused on are the people in front of me, making sure that they are truly sharing and creating new memories, I will have done my job, well.
How are you currently showing your significant other that you are valuing them? If you want a simple way to be intentional with each other today or this week, leave a comment with one way you love him/her uniquely and I will email you a new idea to work on.
Note to my couple: It was neat to see you connect on a deeper level and take away simple tools to love each other better. =)
