Engagement Photoshoots Vs Proposal Photoshoots



Engagement photoshoots and proposal photoshoots are both exciting ways to capture the love and commitment between you and your partner. But what’s the difference between the two?

Engagement photoshoots typically take place after a couple has already gotten engaged, and are a chance to capture the excitement of this special time before the wedding. Just remember that finding an Asheville engagement photographer who can personalize photoshoots to genuinely reflect each couple’s unique love story is rare.



Proposal photoshoots, on the other hand, are all about capturing the moment of surprise when one partner pops the question to the other. Briana Autran knows how to stay hidden and capture the raw, emotional moments leading up to the proposal, as well as the joy and love that follows when the answer is “yes!”

Whether you’re looking for an Asheville engagement photographer or you need to capture the moment you pop the question, Briana Autran will work with you to create a personalized, unforgettable experience that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

“My husband and I were thrilled to work with Briana for our Engagement and Wedding photos. Briana instantly made us feel comfortable during our engagement photo shoot, and brought tons of amazing ideas for unique and creative poses that would best highlight us and our connection in the beautiful natural surroundings. Additionally, Briana is probably the best person on Earth to have around you during your Wedding Day. She has an amazing calming presence and truly helped both of us feel at ease, centered, and able to focus on the special moments! Like me, Briana appreciates the details, and was wonderful and receptive to all the little things I wanted to capture. Working with her was a breeze and she was timely and responsive to all our many emails. She also is adventurous, creative, and was able to adapt to a venue change on the day of our wedding due to rain! I cannot thank her enough for her time and efforts, not to mention her incredible talent and skill. I truly believe her work is something special, and all our family and friends have been blown away by the beauty of the photos. I would recommend her as highly as possible, and we cannot wait to work with her again in the future to capture more of the special milestones of our relationship!?

-Claire I.

“Nathan and I could not have been more thrilled with our wedding photography. Briana was organized, professional, experienced, and so much fun to be around. She helped us clearly communicate the vision for our wedding, and she perfectly executed that plan. Briana was so on board for the changes in our plans due to Covid-19 and went out of her way to make sure our day went smoothly. She shared our love for being outside and was eager to hike for engagement pictures and drive up a rocky road to our wedding. She captured the emotion between us and when we look back on our pictures, we are reminded of the joy and love of that day. She gave us prompts during our photoshoot so that we expressed real emotion, which resulted in pictures capturing real reactions and a closer connection between my husband and I. We came back from both our wedding portrait session and engagement shoot feeling like we had been on an intimate date. And the results were breathtaking. I am normally very critical of myself in pictures, and can be really awkward in front of a camera, but Briana put us at ease and I am still obsessing over these pictures. I would not change one single thing about them. Briana not only took wonderful pictures, but she is a wonderful person. She is the type of person you would want at your wedding even if she weren’t photographing: kind, supportive, encouraging, and just fun. I cannot sing her praises enough. We love her, and can’t wait until our paths cross again.”

Katie A. 


Briana is the most wonderful person. Communicating with her has been so seamless. Her responses are always thought out and come back quickly. She was so supportive throughout rescheduling both the engagement shoot and the wedding this year. From the very beginning, she has been genuine and loving. She likes to get to know you even before booking. Her process is so warm and wholesome. Our engagement shoot was a couple weeks ago. We spent the day adventuring with Briana. We had a blast. Eric and I were so comfortable the entire photoshoot. The way she encourages conversation to make the motions feel natural is true talent. My partner and I just received our engagement photos back in such a timely manner… and they are what magical dreams are made of. She captures pure love. SO excited to share them with family and friends. I have so much comfort, knowing she will capture our family in the truest form at the wedding next year.”

-Mason M.
