ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS. DUH!
Taking engagement photos is the best way to tell your story. Make it unique and all about this season of life. It's the perfect time to have a date and soak each other in before wedding planning kicks in.
You'll be able to use the photos for save the dates, on social media to announce you're getting married, and an awesome way to get comfortable in front of a camera before your wedding day.
WHAT DOES ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS LOOK LIKE?
I've created a guide to help prepare you for your engagement session. With all the tips & tricks to help calm your nerves and pull it all together.
Ultimately your session should represent you & your relationship. Engagement photos are such a fun part of being engaged. Take this time to have your session be a fun date with your favorite things or places!
I always suggust scheduling your engagement session right away so you can use them as announcements or save the dates.
I normally suggest booking it at least 3-6 months before your wedding to avoid stress.
I shoot engagements beginning about 2 hours before the official sunset time to get that golden hour glow. I also suggest, if possible, to choose a weekday which helps with crowd control if you choose a busy location..
WHAT'S YOUR STORY? EVERY LOVE STORY IS UNIQUE...
& I CAN'T WAIT TO CAPTURE YOURS
I’d love to capture your relationship in this current season. What are your favorite things to do together?
Want to bring along some beers, wine, pop the champagne? Let’s crack it open and celebrate! It’s such a special time.
My husband & I brought along our motorcycle... and I’m so glad we did because the next year I was pregnant and we sold it for our family car. I’m beyond thankful for those memories of that time in our lives and I want you to have your memories preserved too. Don't be afraid to think outside the box!
As you start to plan for your engagement session, you will need to start brainstorming about location ideas. Your engagement session should be unique to you and your love story. I want to create a fun experience & images that'll remind you were you are at this point in your relationship. Think about about your favorite hikes, go to brewery to grab a drink, a walk in your neighborhood. When you look back on these images with your grandkids, you’ll have a deeper connection to them and a story to tell than just a photo of you two at a random location.
