Planning Your Engagement Session



I absolutely love engagement sessions and believe they are an important part of your wedding photography experience (Five Reasons to Book an Engagement Session). I also know how overwhelming it can feel to plan your session, especially if this is your first time taking professional photos together.


Your engagement photos should capture your authentic love story. Not only will these be special to share with loved ones, but years into your love story you will treasure having these memories to look back on.


The first step is deciding on the style, feel you want your images to have. Here are some ides to consider:


DO A SESSION INSPIRED BY WHAT YOU LOVE

Do you have a favorite fandom or movie? Let's do a themed session!


Are you obsessed with a certain decade or era? Let's pick outfits and a location that showcase it!


Do you have a shared hobby or activity? (Roller skating...eating ice cream...reading books...dancing...picnics...baking...karaoke nights...)


PICK A LOCATION THAT IS SPECIAL TO YOU

Are you home bodies who love snuggling, board games, movie night and pizza? Let's do a lifestyle session!


Was your first date at a carnival?


Do you love getting dressed up and exploring downtown destinations?


EXPRESS TO YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER THE FEEL YOU WANT YOUR IMAGES TO HAVE:

  • Romantic, Dreamy

  • Fun, Playful
