BOOKING YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION
Congrats on your upcoming engagement! To get the ball rolling, give us a call or send me an email. I recommend booking your session right at sunrise or 90 minutes before sunset. The lighting at those times will make you both look amazing! If you decide on a location that is inside, anytime during the day will work great.
Once a date and time is decided on, a contract will be emailed to you, and the deposit will be collected. A deposit of $150 will hold your date and the final payment is due by the day of your session. All payments can be made using cash or check.
AFTER BOOKING YOUR SESSION
I will email you a questionnaire a few weeks before your engagement session so I can get to know you two a little better.
Start thinking about the type of location you have in mind for your session. Examples: grass/trees, urban, lake/creek, old house/barn, mountain, an at home session etc. From there, I can give you some location ideas of where your session may take place. I recommend a type of location that fits your style as well as the overall look of your home. Ordering a large canvas from your portrait session to hang over your sofa will look very nice if the location we shoot at matches the style of your home.
Don't know what to wear? I recommend wearing clothing items that go well with one another, but do not match. I also suggest wearing clothing that is timeless, try to stay away from screen print t-shirts and stick with simple patterns, textures and layers. Lastly, wear shoes that go with your outfit, running shoes don’t go well with a button up shirt. Most importantly, be comfortable, and BE YOURSELF!
PHOTO SHOOT DAY
Aim to be 15 minutes early! Outdoor engagement sessions rely on specific daylight and once the light is gone I can no longer capture the perfect photograph.
Though not necessary, getting your hair and makeup done by a professional artist can look really flattering in photographs and make you feel even more beautiful. It is also a great practice run for your wedding day.
Props can add a bit of your personality to your session. Bring along a cozy blanket, your dog, or some champagne to celebrate!
During the shoot, I will give you directions that lead you into poses and laughter. Have fun and trust in me that I will give you awesome photos!
AFTER YOUR SESSION
Waiting for your photos to be delivered can feel like forever, but trust me, they will be worth the wait!
You will receive your hand edited photos within 4 weeks of your session. All photos will be delivered to you on a personalized google drive folder that you can share with friends and family. This insures that your memories will never be lost or damaged. You can download all of your high resolution photos right to your computer. You may also print photos from any place you choose.
