our engagement session is one of the biggest parts of working with me! These sessions are my FAV.
Your engagement session gives the three of us time to get to know each other + for you and your fiancé to get comfortable in front of my camera. This will help you on your wedding day because you’ll already be a pro! Engagement photos are also fun to use at your wedding as decor or to post online leading up to the wedding. You can expect your engagement shoot no later than three months before your wedding. I've had couples do them 16 months in advance - it is never too early! My personal favorite season to shoot engagement sessions is in spring when the trees are budding because it is so romantic! However I offer engagement sessions in all seasons! Once you are officially booked with me, we will discuss this more in-depth (with what to wear, what to expect, etc)!
If you are interested in only engagement photos, but not wedding photos, please reach out! I would love to discuss this!!
your engagement session
Because your engagement session is so important, it is actually complimentary to your wedding package.
frequently asked questions
1. When do you recommend doing an engagement shoot?
I recommend scheduling your engagement shoot at least three months before your wedding date so you have time to get pictures printed if you would like to use them at your wedding!
2. Do you come up with the location for the engagement shoot?
I think going some place special to the two of you is important! If you need any advice, I definitely LOVE downtown scenes, wide open fields, and parks. With the right lighting, I can work with a.n.y.t.h.i.n.g.
3. Can I make my wedding package cheaper by opting out of the engagement shoot?
Since the engagement shoot is complimentary, I do not offer a discount if the engagement shoot is not taken. I think an engagement shoot is very important because it allows you to get to know me + my style of photography, so on your wedding day you will already be comfortable! It's also a really fun time, so 99.999999% of my couples do an engagement session with me :).
