Congrats On Your Engagement!
Planning a wedding is an exciting time, which goes by quick even though some days seem to last for-ev-er, am I right? One of the best ways to prepare for your wedding is to have an engagement shoot! No seriously! You are going to be with your photographer ALL day on the BIGGEST day of your life... you want to make sure you work well together. It's important that you like your photographer and that the photographer likes you. Good chemistry will result in amazing pictures and will make the whole wedding experience WAY more enjoyable. Not to mention, you'll have beautiful images of you and your fiancé to share with your loved ones and will also have an image to use for your announcements! You can even get a photo book made of your shoot, which makes for a great addition to your coffee table.
What To Expect
My engagement shoots are laid-back, fun, informative and most importantly, produce gorgeous images that you'll love and cherish for a lifetime! Before the shoot, I'll send you my Engagement Style Guide, which goes over locations, what to wear, and what to bring. This will ensure that you're completely prepared and we'll achieve the most beautiful images possible. At the beginning of the shoot, I will walk you through the basic foundation of posing, which will make the rest of the shoot easy, fun, and make the two of you look amazing!
The photo shoot will take around TWO hours and we can travel up to 2 different locations if time allows. One or two outfits are encouraged as well, time permitting.
I'm flexible on locations and open to ideas if you have something specific in mind. If we're allowed to shoot there, then I'm willing to go! Please be aware that if any locations require a permit, then you're responsible for obtaining one. I recommend locations that have special meaning to you and your fiance, but I can also recommend a few different spots if you need me to.
