Miss Samantha visited me in the studio for her Holiday Mini Session! As always she was cheerful and we had a blast creating memories that will surely last a lifetime.
Archer came to the studio for his 9-month milestone session! This lil guy LOVES to move and is already s
Tis the season! We finished Archer's session with a few holiday photos! We tried getting him to sleep in Santa's lap, but without fail every time he closed his eyes and heard the snap of my camera he woke up smiling. It was hilarious. Gosh, I feel like this last year went fast! From taking his mommy and daddy's pregnancy announcment photos to maternity photos to captureing his first year to now planning his cake smash theme.
Who doesn't enjoy some engagement statistics? I came across this article the other day and found it pretty interesting. Now, keep in mind that I am a wedding photographer and I LOVE all things wedding related. I am also quite nerdy and love numbers and statistics so combining engagements and statistics is right up my alley!
With over 10.000 people surveyed here is what they found as the most popular days to get engaged:
#1 Christmas Eve- Almost one-third of couples surveyed 31%
#2 Valentines Day- 22%
#3 New Years Eve- 18%
#4 On the anniversary of the day the couple met- 11%
#5 Birthday- 9%
#6 Christmas Day- 7%
So, ladies and gents if you're still waiting for your proposal don't fret there is still a pretty decent probability your man or lady will still pop the big question in the next month or so! You've heard of wedding season right? Typically during the summer and fall months. Well, we are in the middle of engagement season! The winter months are the most popular months to get engaged! I, myself, got engaged in November. November 11th, 2010 to be exact.
Another statistic I found quite interesting was the number of women who said they would propose. 21% of women said they would be courageous enough to propose while 79% said they would not.
Plenty of other fun engagement statistics ranging from the perceived best date to propose to the best plan to propose are included in the article! Feel free to check it out!
