Your Engagement Session!
I'm so excited to work with you both!
I wanted to share a bit about the session in advance you have an idea of what to expect while we are shooting. The engagement session is a chance for us to get to know each other before your wedding day, and ultimately, just an opportunity for you both to hang out together in a place that you love and have photos of you being your awesome selves. I totally understand that getting in front of the camera can be intimidating. I’ll be helping you all the way through with poses, so you don’t have to worry about anything other than enjoying the company of your loved one!
Where should we go?
Nothing is more amazing than photos that show your authentic selves, so don't be afraid to let your personality shine by choosing a location that is meaningful to the both of you! I'm also more than happy to offer suggestions for specific locations. Here are a few things to get the ball rolling:
Are there any places that are especially meaningful? Is it where you got engaged or where your first met? Your favourite weekend hangout?
You can also think different hobbies or activities you both like. Are you mega foodies who search out the best coffee? Do you love going to a local park on the weekend? Hitting the North shore trails on days off? Do you love hanging out at home snuggled on the couch watching good tv?
When should we go?
The most ideal time for photos (the magical Golden Hour) is always an hour or two after sunrise or before sunset. This is the best time for soft glowing light, especially for wide open spaces like the beach, or fields.
What should we wear?
The most important thing is to wear whatever makes you feel fantastic. You are welcome to bring two outfits, one that is more casual and one that is dressier and do quick change halfway through the session. When choosing clothing, while it might be tempting to go matchy matchy, think about finding complementary patterns and colours, while mixing in different textures.
How long until we see the photos?
Within 14 days of your session I will send you the link to a private six month online gallery where you will be able to download the high resolution files for printing and posting. You can also choose to share the entire gallery with friends and family. Keep an eye out on instagram and facebook for a few sneak peeks from the session :)
