Your Engagement Session

 
All of  my wedding packages come with a complimentary engagement session, but this session is not one to skimp on! Engagement sessions are not only a great way for us to get to know each other, but your engagement photos are in most cases the first glimpse of your love in the form of photographic documentation. It’s usually the first chance you get to tell the story of your love in photographs and more importantly it’s typically the first chance that you get to introduce that story to the people you know and love. That’s why I like to spend a few hours if not more with my engagement sessions.

After booking a wedding with me, I typically ask a series of questions about the two of you and what makes your love “yours”. I then work with you to come up with the most creative, yet fitting session ideas that are tailored to your personal relationship and love story. I want your engagement session represent the love the two of you share as well as the personalities that brought the two of you together.

From there, we pick a location and a day and plan on spending at least a few hours together.

Things to consider when planning your engagement session:

•  You can bring up to 3 outfit changes, and I often recommend bringing a few to choose from just incase something happens. I have had couples ask if they can send me photos of their outfits and get my opinion and I have no problem with this, in fact I welcome it! Feel free to reach out to me any time for tips, advice, or just someone else’s opinion.

•  You don’t have to match your honey to a “T” by wearing the same color shirt with the same color jeans. In fact, it typically looks best when you wear colors and patterns that work together or complement each other rather than trying match exactly. Think about Patterns and colors that work well together. 

• Don’t forget to consider footwear. You don’t want to be wearing a pair of dressy, tall, brown boots when your man has a pair of sneakers on. I suggest considering every aspect of your wardrobe right down to the accessories.

• Pinterest is an awesome place to look for photography inspiration, and it’s easy to fall in love with the photos that you see on Pinterest, but what you may not know is that it is a copyright violation to replicate the exact same photo that you find on Pinterest. However, you are welcome to find and even share Pinterst photos that you love with me, (in fact I often suggest it if you’re not 100% certain on the type of photos you’re looking for) however rather than directly copying the portraits you find; I will use them as an inspiration for “your” engagement sessions.
