All of our wedding packages include an engagement session, because it is a great place for us to work together and get to know each other. We can chat, make each other laugh, and swap movie quotes while taking some pictures! This ensures that you are happy on the happiest day of your life. In addition to giving you the opportunity for a steamy, lovey-dovey hour or two with your soon-to-be-spouse, engagement sessions actually serve a functional purpose. Many people use their engagement sessions for their "save the dates," wedding planning website, invitations, or even as an announcement to the world that they're tying the knot. A lot of couples even use photographs from their engagement session for wedding thank you cards.
Not to mention, engagement session photos give you a chance to show off that gorgeous ring a little bit more (it can be very hard to capture it with a camera phone). We’d wager a guess that you have loads of people asking you for pictures of your bling!
Planning is pretty straightforward. We work together to create a customized session. For example, we can shoot at the place you two had your first date, head to your favorite park or go somewhere that makes you just bubble with love from the inside out.
Regarding what you wear, we'll provide you with tips and advice on how to dress for the day of your session. And, of course, you can always bring a few different outfits and options for the shoot.
We are natural, candid photographers (like a paparazzi, without the big ugly flash and way less pushy). We focus on documenting YOU. Who you are, what you enjoy together, the little quirks that make your love strong. The very first step to planning your engagement experience is to schedule a phone call to get to know you. This is a 15 minute meet & greet to learn more about what your visions are for your photographs.
After we chat on the phone we will follow up with you in an email and send over what's included in the engagement session as well as our available dates for the shoot. You will also receive a complimentary style guide that will walk you through choosing your outfits!
During the session we will make work to make you feel as laid back and comfortable as possible. Think of it as: the two of you hanging out together, laughing, playing, and loving on each other and we're there in the background, documenting it all.
After the session, we will set up an online web chat meeting to go over your images!
