AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION TO REMEMBER


Aside from providing you with beautiful, emotional portraits in a casual setting, engagement sessions allow us to get to know each other before the big day. Knowing what to expect from your photographer and feeling relaxed in front of the camera are both so critical for photo success. During the engagement session, I love to work with you to find the styles, smiles, angles and poses that work best for you as a couple in a pressure-free setting. That way, when your wedding day comes around, we’ll have already practiced picture-taking together and everyone will know what to expect!

Engagement sessions are the time for you and your beloved to show your inner selves, your love for one another, and your favorite outfits in a relaxing and enjoyable environment. You are welcome to choose a location that speaks to you in a personal way or let me recommend a few of my favorite spots based on experience. Some couples choose that special spot where he proposed, others their favorite restaurant, winery, or flower field. I can’t wait to get you in front of the lens and bring out what makes you a special couple!

Here are Just a few reasons why an engagement session is a brilliant idea for you.

YOU'LL BE USING THEM (ALOT!)Reason One

Believe it or not, you’ll probably be using those engagement photos over and over again before the big day arrives. My clients love sending out photo-laced Save The Date cards or using their images for their wedding website. Some clients have even incorporated engagement images into their wedding invitation suites!

In addition to stationery, I’ve often created wedding sign-in albums for clients featuring engagement photos (which are a huge hit with guests at the wedding!). Whether you’re announcing your wedding via a website or sending out beautiful stationery, I’m certain you’ll find multiple uses for these fun, casual photographs.

PRACTICE FOR THE BIG DAYReason Two

When the big day arrives, it’s normal for some couples to be nervous about being in front of the lens. Having an engagement session beforehand is a great way for us to get to know each other and practice working together. You’ll feel more confident about your wedding photos, and know exactly what to expect when working with me. Having an engagement session will also allow me to learn your best angles, practice poses (like the classic dip, which can take some practice!), and get inspired on ideas for the perfect wedding images.

EXPRESS YOURSELFReason Three

In your engagement session, anything goes! I highly encourage every kind of self-expression, including fashion taste, favorite colors, hobbies, special locations, and anything else that’s unique to you as a couple. Sometimes couples choose locations where he proposed, others a favorite bar or outdoor spot. I’ll always encourage you to incorporate props, pets, hobbies, or anything else that’s special to you! I love getting creative and having clients bring their own creative ideas into their engagement sessions.

I GET TO SEE WHAT WORKSREASON 4

A lot goes into getting that perfect shot of a couple! Angles, lighting, and the right posing all heavily contribute to a perfect couple’s portrait. Sometimes it takes us photographers a few tries to really nail down what makes a couple look their absolute best. An engagement shoot is a perfect way to experiment without worrying about time constraints as we do during a wedding. Once we try a few things and find your perfect look for photos, we can easily replicate it on the big day, providing you with stunning shots gotten very quickly under a pressured situation!
