How to Prepare for your Engagement Session!


Congratulations on your engagement!

You may have some pre-photoshoot jitters concerning what to expect. Never fear! I'm here!

1. Keep your eye on the big picture. Enjoy being engaged!

Take a deep breath and think about the big picture. You're engaged to be married to the person who makes your heart swell with happiness! That's all that matters and that's what I'm here to capture.

2. How to pose:

Don't! Let yourself be happily in love and your body language will naturally show that. I'll be watching out for your best angels and will make minor adjustments.

3. What props to bring

Your pretty self and your fiancé! Wine (or a drink of choice) is always encouraged ;). Don't worry about spending endless hours on Pinterest searching for the most adorable props. However, if props are your thing, absolutely bring as many as you'd like! Some bring the date of their wedding on a banner/chalkboard, tokens from their dates, or items related to their wedding theme.

4. Make your nails pretty.

If you have an engagement ring, I'll most likely get a close up of your hands. If you'd like to avoid closeups of your hands, we can do that!

5. What to wear:

Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and beautiful! Think about your location/theme and let that inspire you. Avoid neon (as neon reflects onto faces) and too many thin stripes (as this distorts on camera).

6. Have fun!

To have a successful engagement session, this is all you really need to do!

Enjoy every moment of your engagement. I'm excited to create your photos with you!
