Tips To Make Your Engagement Session Painless and Amazing!

1: Turn it into a date. You are celebrating a big step in your relationship after all. Have a drink or two beforehand, this also helps you relax for your engagement session. Plan something fun to do afterwards, especially considering the effort you both spent to get ready for your engagement session.

2: Location, location, location. It’s common to schedule an engagement session in the park, however if there’s a place that has meaning to you, a first date location or where you got engaged or even if you just like the look of a certain area then definitely mention it. Make the engagement session unique to you!

3: What to wear, this can really vary on the time of year and the location you choose, I’m happy to talk about outfit recommendations based on the location and season you would like your engagement session done. Remember to not overdress, you want to be comfortable and have fun and not be thinking about your clothing. It’s always a good idea to bring a second option to change into as well; it’s like two different sessions in one!

4: The best time of day for an engagement session, I am able to work in any situation at any time of day or night, though my favorite time to photograph engagement sessions is early evening. It gives us three unique and amazing looks for your engagement session. The first part of the session we get beautiful golden light, in the middle of the session we get a wonderful sunset and of course for the last bit a few night shots that will really blow your socks off!

5: Let me know some of your favorite photos on my website. That helps me have an idea of the type of look that you like so I can focus more on that to tailor your engagement session to what you want.
