engagement session overview
• by megan
You will be the subject of many photos on your wedding day, but time for you and your spouse to sneak away privately for photos is often limited. You are the main event of the party after all! Engagement sessions are a fun way to take photos and spend time with your photographer in a relaxed setting. Plus the images are great to have for save-the-dates or a wedding website.
We aim to make your engagement session as natural and personal as possible. My first advice is to start thinking about what is meaningful to you as a couple. Are you foodies or caffeine addicts with a favorite cafe nearby? Do you love wandering the streets people-watching, spending time at the beach or playing a particular game? Although we'll take your typical posed portraits, we'll spend just as much time documenting your interactions, and we want the activity and environment to be comfortable and fun.
In terms of logistics, once we have a tentative schedule we will work with you to select an optimal time of day. For a quick frame of reference, if we're shooting outdoors the light tends to be nicest an hour or two before sunset. Engagement sessions are one to two hours. Chat with your photographer, but depending on your itinerary, we may have time to photograph at a couple of locations, stop for a drink or squeeze in an easy outfit change, too.
