Engagement Sessions -

PLEASE CREATE AN ACCOUNT BEFORE REQUESTING A BOOKING. Then send an email to request a session date and time.

Congratulations on your Engagement!

A professional Engagement session will capture the beautiful emotions that are playing out and blooming in each of your hearts.  You can also use the pictures for any announcements that you will be sending out as well as putting in frames and hanging up in your home new home or apartment together.

Some clients want photos for the sole purpose of creating memories together that will be displayed their wedding reception, or use them for Save the Date cards, as well as posting them on social media sites that have event information. Sometimes it is just a great opportunity to have professional photos taken of both of your during this start of a wonderful journey.

ALL portrait sessions require a retainer fee of $50 when you send a booking request, which will then be applied to the full cost of your session. $25 of that fee is nonrefundable if you end up canceling completely. You will also be required to sign a contract before your session date is solidified. I will hold your requested date for 1 week, to give you time to get those items to me. After that 1 week your date and time will be opened back up to the public as an available time.

WHAT DO WE WEAR?

Think about your outfits carefully. The more relaxed your outfits, the more relaxed you will be in the session. If you are wanting a more formal setting, then choosing clothes that reflect that will also help you to feel and look the part. The best advice I can give you is do not choose clothes that do not reflect your own personal sense of style. You want to be able to feel like yourself during the session, which will make for some really great photos.

Coordinate your outfits together but do not feel that you need to match your fiancé.  Look for colors that belong in the same color family and are a nice compliment to each other. It is also a good idea to think about your location while choosing your outfits.

This session is a great time to practice what you want your hair and make up to look like on the day of the wedding. If you are looking at hiring a hair and makeup artist, now would be the time to go for a trial run. However, that works best if you are going for a more formal type of look.

I always ask that my clients send me a photo of their outfit to ensure that everything will be cohesive with the background that we are photographing at.

WHAT DO WE BRING?

Bringing a bag to help carry additional items is always a plus. Here is where you would store extra shoes, jewelry, hair products, etc. Keep it to one bag so that as we walk around to our different settings we can make smooth and easy transistions.

PHOTO SESSION DAY – WHAT TO EXPECT

Engagement photos are perfect for capturing that moment in time before you join together as one on your wedding day. Photos like this are ones you'll treasure for years. You'll want to make sure you are prepared and ready to make the most of our time together. This means a few things. First, make sure to schedule your session during a time when you will be at your best mentally and physically. Staying up late the night before an early morning session is not always the best use of time, or the wisest choice.  Similarly, packing a day full of other errands or appointments, when you have an evening session, creates unneeded stress and it will show in your photo session. In other words, come well-rested and fed, and stress free! Depending on your location of choice, there will be good and bad times to photograph. I will make suggestions on when we'll get the best outcome. Do not worry if you feel uncomfortable in front of a camera. It happens to most people. My job is to get you relaxed and comfortable so that it just feels second nature to have someone pointing a camera at you.

AFTER PHOTO SESSION DAY – WHAT TO EXPECT

After your photo session you will be anxious to see your photos, and I'll be anxious to share them with you!  It generally takes 2-3 weeks to prepare your images. Once they are ready I will set up an appointment with you where you can come and view your photos in person. From those photos you will choose your favorite shots within your package allotment.

Choose a base session and add on as much as you want. Session fee does not include portrait orders.
