Heck yeah I do engagement sessions! 

I strive to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your session. I get that getting all comfy and cozy in front of someone you just met can be awkward.. but I've done this so many times.. I can get full participation within minutes lol If you have a partner that hates taking photos.. I've got you.

Why Have An Engagement Session?

I consider engagement sessions so important because not only are they a celebration of your exciting future together, they're also prime time for us to capture all that cheesy, lovey-dovey stuff on camera. Yes.. I said cheesy! 

Seeing how you two are together can prepare us immensely for your wedding day. It also gives you an opportunity to see how we work behind the camera, ensuring you have a smooth wedding with no qualms or worries whatsoever. Plus, there are a bajillion uses for the photos we take that day, including save the dates, wedding websites, bridal shower, bachelor party and wedding invites, thank-you cards and more.

Engagement Session Details

So what goes into an engagement session? We start out by discussing the details: themes, locations, outfits, and what you plan to use your images for. From there, I'll secure location permits if necessary and even guide you in your wardrobe choices if you want a little help. I'll be here along the way to address any questions you have. I'm up for any adventure you are! Want to shoot in a unique location?.. let's do it! Just have to add that permit fees are usually associated said amazing locations. If you have your heart set on a specific location please let me know asap as some permits may take up to 30 days to process. 

On the day of your shoot, we'll meet at the location and start snapping away. I always get lots of mushy photos that showcase your love, and you better believe I capture all the details too (including your ring)! If you have any specific requests, we'll make sure to get those taken care of, as well.
