Engagement

the best 'yes' you ever said

It’s kind of a big deal – congratulations! While you’re on this roller-coaster of a season that began with one of the most memorable highs of your life, there are just a few (hundred) things to do. The most fun item on that list, and one of the most important, is to take a day to honor and document this epic milestone. Be prepared for copious amounts of laughter and lots of cuddling with your love.

Good to know

01

distinct and monumental

Why bother with engagement photos? Because this short season is just as big of a deal as your wedding day! Just like the big day, engagement is something to soak up before it becomes a memory. While wedding photos depict a single, incredible day, engagement photos capture the unique time you spent excitedly anticipating your life together.
02

you might even have fun

Contrary to popular belief, having your photo taken doesn’t have to be painful or awkward. Say, what?! During my sessions we relax (really!), goof around, and laugh a lot. It feels so natural you'll forget I have a camera and surprise yourself by having a good time.
03

more than pretty pictures

More than anything, I want these photographs to mean something to you. I hope they come to life as you view them - that you’ll hear the laughter, feel those tight hugs, and experience your beautiful relationship from a new perspective. An image that does that will only increase in value as you enjoy it for years to come.

FAQs

01. Are engagement sessions included in the wedding package?

Yes! When booking the wedding package, you’ll receive a complimentary engagement session. Pure happiness!

02. When should I schedule my session?

It’s totally up to you! Depending on the length of your engagement, it’s nice to have the engagement session done at least a few months before the wedding, so you’re not squeezing it in at crunch time. Be sure to let me know if you plan to use your engagement photos for save-the-dates, guestbook, or other printing, so we can plan accordingly.

03. Where do sessions take place?

Sessions are on-location and typically outdoors unless you prefer otherwise. I am always open to your ideas and places that are special to the two of you. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure where to start – I have a long list of location ideas.

04. What's the plan for inclement weather?

If the forecast indicates within a day or two of the session that rain or other poor weather will pose a significant problem, the session will be rescheduled or possibly moved indoors. That said, my motto is generally to embrace the type of day we’re dealt and have fun with it! Unless conditions are extreme, flexibility is encouraged and appreciated.
