Engagement sessions are a blast and are a great way for us to get to know one another (in front of and behind the camera) before the wedding day. Whether you're a cool vintage style couple or more modern and simple. We strive to capture your true personalities and unique relationship in fun locations. Sessions are laid back and never stressful! We want you to enjoy yourselves and feel like rock stars.
With Engagement Session we’re looking to tell a bit more of a story… Bring a series of outfits that let’s us start out casual, move to dressed up a bit (like for Easter brunch at your parents) and then dressed to kill with your night-out-on-the-town look. You can enhance each of these looks by modifying your hair, changing jewelry, transitioning your make-up from daytime to nighttime, etc.
In addition to the general ideas mentioned above, here are some guidelines:
Think in black and white tones; if everyone wears dark blue and one person wears white, the eye will be drawn to the person wearing white. If there’s a reason that one person should stand out, then do it. If not, change your color selections. Denim in any color for pants and jackets works well. It’s classic, it’s informal and it comes in lots of great colors. Best of all, it never goes out of style. Groom your hands and nails; they usually end up in some pictures.
Avoid large, shiny objects like belt buckles, bold jewelry and reflective watches, but please bring an assortment of necklaces, bracelets, scarves, etc. as they provide a finished polish. Unless your watch has a story, it’s best to take it off during your portrait session. In fact, it’s best to take it off well before you arrive so the marks on your wrist have a chance to fade. Classic, elegant jewelry like pearls always looks appropriate.
Stripes, plaids, checks and busy patterns like paisley all tend to be distracting.
