An engagement session is the perfect opportunity for me to get to know you as a couple; to see how you interact together and what is the best way for me to direct you. It also gives you the opportunity to see my work ethic as well as feel more comfortable in front of a camera before the big day. 

Location: 

Can be anywhere! Love where he proposed? Want to have the session in the home that you have built together? Going on vacay before the big day? Take me with you! Or Do you already have a location in mind? Perfect!  If you don’t? No worries! I have plenty of places that I can recommend!
NOTE - Some locations are free but some have a permit fee. If you decide to go with a location that has a permit fee it will be added to your wedding invoice. 

Anything that makes you feel comfortable! We want the images main focus to be on you two. We do a lot of moving around during this session so heels and dresses with slits aren't very adaptable to the directions you'll be getting.
A good tip to add variety is to wear layered pieces. Like maybe a leather jacket, a hip hat, changeable jewelry, maybe even switch out your shoes!

Lighting! Lighting makes or breaks images. Interestingly enough, direct sunlight is not good for portraits. It causes harsh shadows across your face because the sun is right above your head. For me to give you the quality images that you see on my site we will schedule your engagement session either the hour after sunrise or the hour before sunset! Because who doesn’t love those colors in the sky?!

I know it can be a lot but I will be there helping you the entire time! The first couple minutes can be awkward but it gets better as the hour goes on! I swear ;) 
I want you to feel like yourselves so I have plenty of tricks to make you two feel comfortable and focus on one another rather than me.
