Planning an engagement session?
Engagements sessions are a wonderful way to creatively capture your personality as a couple. It also provides invaluable moments for us to become more acquainted with you as couple before your wedding day. We offer 90 minute sessions which gives a lot of opportunity to create a variety of images.
Here are a few tips to get the most out of your session with us.
Before the Session:
Location/Theme: We will coordinate with you to determine a great location for your shoot. Some things to consider when deciding on location are: your personalities, what the two of you enjoy doing as a couple, and the look and feel we want to capture. You are welcome to include pets or props in your session. The great news is we have plenty of time to get creative!
What to Wear: Outfits should reflect who you are as a couple. Your look should compliment each other without being "matchy matchy." In other words, you don't have to wear matching t-shirts or even the same color. Small doses of color look great on camera. Ladies if you are wearing heels, consider bringing along a pair of flats for walking to multiple locations. Gents, solid color shoes generally look best. Often we have time for an outfit change, so its possible to do a dressy look and a more casual look.
Hair/Makeup: Ladies, consider having a professional hair and makeup application. We work with several awesome artists and are happy to offer recommendations. If you are applying your own makeup, it's best to go for a subtle look that doesn't look too overly done.
Getting the Most Out of Your Photos:
Engagement photos are a wonderful way of introducing who you are as a couple to family and friends. We offer a variety of options and ideas for presenting your photos. Why not use one of your favorites to create Save the Date cards? You can also create a Wedding Guest Sign in Book featuring some of your favorite photos. Another option is to create a slideshow for your wedding day or a display for your reception. For some of our movie lovers, we can even create a personalized movie poster for display.
The most important thing is to have fun an enjoy your time together. An engagement session is a wonderful way to start off date night (or afternoon) with your sweetie!
