You’re engaged! Next step is to take your engagement pictures so you can start preparing to send out your invitations! I am sure you have many questions on how to make your engagement session the absolute best it can be! And don’t you worry, if a question you have isn’t answered in this post please feel free to reach out to me with any additional questions you may have! You only get engaged once, let me help you make it the best experience possible!
How long will my engagement session last?
Engagement sessions generally last 60-90 minutes depending on location!
How many images will I receive from my session and how will they be delivered?
Every engagement session is guaranteed 75+ images! After your session I cull through the images we took to pick out the absolute best! I guarantee 2-3 week editing time after your session. Once I have edited your images you will receive them via an online gallery with a link special to you! They will then be yours to share, download, print and use to announce your upcoming wedding!
Where should our session take place?
Once we pick a date we will start to discuss what ideas you had for your engagement session! I have dozens of locations to fit the style you are looking for! But my favorite engagement sessions are those that take place somewhere special to you as a couple! Do you love camping and hiking? Let’s go up to the mountains! Did he propose somewhere special? Let’s go there! The possibilities are endless. And if you can’t think of anywhere you would like to go, we can chat and I can help come up with options!
What if we are awkward in front of the camera? Can you teach us how to pose?
I truly believe that no one is as awkward in front of the camera as they think they are! Those first 10 minutes as we warm up to what we are doing yes, may start out feeling a little awkward but I promise by the end of the session you will feel like pros. I will walk you through my set of poses and actions to get you feeling comfortable but I want you to always be true to yourself. Even grooms will walk away from an engagement session saying they had more fun that he thought he would!
What time of day is best for our Engagement Session?
The best time to shoot your engagement session is either one hour before sunset or one hour after sunrise. This exact time will vary depending on the time of year, but this time of year will allow us to get that gorgeous warm light you will dream of!
What should we wear?
My biggest piece of advice is to wear something you love and you feel comfortable in. Find outfits that coordinate and compliment who you are as a couple! I have loads more advice in an Engagement Prep Guide that will be sent to you as well as a full blog post on outfits ideas. You can view the blog post here.I also have a pinterest board full of outfit inspiration and ideas! Not to mention I am always down for a weekend shopping spree if you need a partner to help pick out your engagement session outfits!
